An Introduction to Data Analysis Using Minitab for Windows by Kathleen
McLaughlin and Dorothy Wakefield
(The exact version will depend on whether or not you wish to purchase the student version of Minitab for your home computer.
This laboratory manual may be purchased either with or without the student version of Minitab for Windows. For students who, like the instructor, prefer using a Macintosh, a student version of Minitab for the Macintosh may be purchased separately from the UConn Co-op. Unfortunately, it is far more expensive--costing nearly $80--when purchased separately. Minitab is installed on all computers both in the Macintosh laboratory in the Kirschbaum Library and the Windows laboratory in the Classroom Building. Students only need to obtain their own copies of Minitab if they intend to complete their assignments on home computers.
The bookstore has run out of copies of the version of the lab manual which
is bundled with the Windows version of Minitab and additional copies will
not be available until early to mid-February. Anyone who has not yet
purchased that version but wishes to will need to somehow obtain copies of
the relevant portions of the lab manual to use for the first few labs.
This will be discussed further in class.

Class Mailing List
An Internet listserv mailing list has been set up for the use of this
class. The name of the list is WST110-L@UCONNVM.UCONN.EDU. You
can sign up for the mailing list by sending a message containing the single
subscribe wst110-l <your name>
to firstname.lastname@example.org, where <your name> is replaced by your own name. Alternatively, your instructor will subscribe you once you inform him of your email address.
It is expected that everyone in the class will subscribe to and participate in the mailing list. Messages may be sent to everyone on the mailing list in the same way any other email message is sent; just address such messages to WST110-L@UCONNVM.UCONN.EDU.
It is recommended that students check their email regularly. Your
instructor will use email to communicate with the entire class between
meetings as well as to communicate with individual students.
The course average will be determined by adding together the grades on the three exams, the computer assignments, any other graded quizzes or assignments, and one and a half times the final exam.
