You do not have to purchase any software for this course. The department expects that students will use the software in the labs on campus. However, MINITAB is commercially available. The purpose of this handout is to explain what you can buy or rent, how it compares with what we have in the labs, and to help you see what might work on your own computer. Be sure to check for compatibility with your computer system before you buy any software. Software is not returnable. We cannot help you with your questions about installation, printing, retrieving files, etc. Please do not buy software to use at home unless you are capable of handling those issues on your own.
The software that you buy does not have the data from our text. That data is on the CD inside the back cover of your textbook. If you have lost that CD, you can find those datasets from the publisher's website. I have provided a discussion of this.
Instructions for installing MINITAB at home.
MINITAB, version 14, is available in the Media Center Computer Labs, the Learning Labs, and the math department classrooms with computers where we teach statistics. This requires network access to open it. If the network is down, many of these also have access to MINITAB, Version 12, Student Edition, which can run without the network..
