Distance Education: Web Course Information
- From the Instructor:
The textbook is: Stats Data and Model (3rd Edition) by DeVeaux, Velleman, Bock, ISBN 9781256284291 and is available at the PCC bookstore.
MyStatLab will be optional for this course. New texts purchased at our bookstore are shrink wrapped with the MyStatLab access code for about $135. MyStatLab does not come with a used copy of the text. MyStatLab alone is about $92, so the most cost effective option it to purchase a new text (because you can sell back your book at the end of the term).
You need to have access to Microsoft Office or (a free option) OpenOffice.org. (Office 2008/2011 for Mac does not have the necessary software, but StatPlus is free to add-in and contains most of the tools you'd want/need.) A calculator will also be helpful for exams (no specific model required, but a TI-89 or TI-84 (or TI-83) would be ideal).
This course will be using Desire2Learn this term. To login to your course, please go to: https://my.pcc.edu and click on the Desire2Learn login.
