Statistics Pointers an IRA Guides

NOTE: Starting in the Fall 2017 Semester, I will be using different material for my lecture / face-to-face course.  These materials will only pair with the material for students enrolled in my ONLINE section of Stat 300.  

The Pointers and Interactive Reading (IRA) Guide were created to coordinate with the textbook:  Interactive Statistics: Informed Decisions Using Data by Michael Sullivan III and George Woodbury.  These pointers and IRA guides were originally created by George Woodbury but have been modified by me (with permission) to include my personal notes.

The pointers are my notes and definitions to help you through each each section.  The pointers also include notes about how to use StatCrunch.

The IRA Guides walk you through each Interactive Reading Assignment screen by screen.  The let you know which screens are important and which screens can be skipped.  

Video Solutions in the IRA's.

The Interactive Reading Assignments include multiple video solutions.  In fact, may problems are worked "by hand" using the formulas, using a TI-84 Graphing Calculator, or using StatCrunch.

The icon of hand holding a pencil will show you a "by hand" solution.  The author will work the problem by showing you how to use the formulas.

The icon that says TI-84 will show you how to complete the problem using a TI-84 Graphing calculator.

The icon with an SC on it will show you how to complete the problem using StatCrunch.
