Essentials of Business Statistics https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260239519.jpeg 2 9781260239515 Essentials of Business Statistics: Communicating with Numbers is a core statistics textbook that sparks student interest and bridges the gap between how statistics is taught and how practitioners think about and apply statistical methods. Throughout the text, the emphasis is on communicating with numbers rather than on number crunching. By incorporating the perspective of professional users, the subject matter is more relevant and the presentation of material more straightforward for students. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.

Algorithmic Problems

are auto-graded exercises that use different numeric values each time a problem is served up to the student. This gives students practice in working a problem several times; they get the same question, but with different numbers each time. This also deters cheating because each student in a class or lab receives a slightly different version of the problem and corresponding answer.

BStat Prep Modules:

These assignable and auto-graded modules are available in Connect and cover basic Math, Statistics and Excel topics. They were designed to help instructors ensure that all students have the same level of preparedness in the course.

MegaStat®

is a full-feature Excel statistical analysis add-in that is available on the MegaStat website at www.mhhe.com/megastat for purchase. MegaStat performs statistical analyses within an Excel workbook and covers most calculations found in introductory statistics textbooks, such as computing descriptive statistics, creating frequency distributions, and computing probabilities as well as hypothesis testing, ANOVA, chi-square analysis, and regression analysis (simple and multiple). Video tutorials and a User's Guide are included.

Guided Examples:

These narrated, animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.

ExcelNow!

Enables students to quickly teach themselves the Excel skills they need for success in their business statistics course and future careers, whether on a PC or Mac. ExcelNow! helps students at a time when learning new concepts becomes easiest, when they are working in Excel – the teachable moment
