This site contains materials for a college level undergraduate statistics course. The approach places emphasis on practical application. Examples are shown with hand computations and with the Minitab statistical program (v13-15). There are a few MS Excel spreadsheets as well. The text used as a supplement for the course is McCall, R. B. (2001). Fundamental Statistics for Behavioral Sciences (8-th edition). NY: Harcourt, Brace and Company.
The material is divided into chapters and consists of text, tables, equations, and figures, in a hypermedia format. Minitab tutorials and some Excel spreadsheets are linked to the chapters as are homework assignments. The material is designed for use in a classroom with a presentation device. The students typically print the lectures (preferably on a color printer) in advance. To give the user a quick idea of the general appearance of equations and figures, an example of each follows.

Example Figure - looking at kurtosis:
