During Week 1, we covered the first four chapters of the Lind
Business Research and Descriptive Statistics
Week one covers four chapters:
• Chapter 1: What is statistics?
• Chapter 2: Frequency Distributions and graphic presentation
• Chapter 3: Numerical Measures
• Chapter 4: Displaying and Exploring Data
introduces four important terms:
• Frequency Distribution
• Measures of Location/Dispersion
• Descriptive Statistics
- You were introduced to Craig
- You were introduced to the Mobile
of Excellent Management and talked about where we would find statistics
used in business.
- You were introduced to Statistics?
- You were introduced to Statistical
Definitions and Language
- You were introduced to Descriptive
and Graphical Statistics and Simple Calculations and Theories.
and a good time was had by all!
During Week 2 we will cover the chapter 5, 6, and 7 of the Lind book.
- You will be introduced to Probability
Concepts in Chapter 5
- We will investigate Discrete Probability Distributions in Chapter 6
- We will investigate the Normal Probability Distribution in Chapter 7.
During Week 3 we will cover Chapters 8, 9, 10, and 11
- Sampling Methods and the Central Limit Theorem
in Chapter 8
- Confidence Intervals in Chapter
- Hypothesis Testing in Chapters
10 and 11.
During Week 4 we will cover Chapters 12, 15, and 16
Week four introduces two topics:
• Analysis of variance (ANOVA)
• More Hypotheses testing
- Analysis of Variance in Chapter 12
- Nonparametric Methods: Chi-Square Applications in Chapter
- Nonparametric Methods: Analysis of Ranked Data in Chapter

one to compare the means of more than two populations at one
time. Nonparametric statistics allow one to work with data that
are from populations that are distribution-free. The discussions
related to ANOVA starts with the F –distributions and then
compare two population variances. It is important to understand
the difference between the Z- and t –distributions and the F
ANOVA can be
applied in the workplace. Chapters 15 and 16 deal with
nonparametric or distribution-free tests which are used when
working with data that is ordinal or nominal level data.
