# Statistics 2 - BHGE

Level:
Introductory
Prerequisite:
Participants should have some familiarity with basic probabliity and statistics.

Course Text:
Will be provided within the course
Software:
In this course, software is needed for statistical analysis and simple resampling/simulation operations. We recommend one of these 4 options:
1. Regular Excel (not Excel Starter) and Box Sampler (must have Windows)
2. Regular Excel (not Excel Starter) and Resampling Stats for Excel (must have Windows)
3. StatCrunch (Windows or Mac OS)
4. R

Excel: you will need to have some facility with using formulas in Excel. If you don't, please review either this tutorial or this tutorial before the course starts.

Box Sampler: this is a free add-in for Excel, designed as a visual teaching and learning tool for doing resampling simulations. Runs only on Windows.  Installation file is here, documentation here.

Resampling Stats for Excel: this is a commercial add-in for Excel, designed as a practitioner's tool for doing resampling simulations. A free license is available to all course participants, while they are enrolled in the statistics.com sequence of introductory statistics courses. Runs only on Windows. Enrolled students will be given access to a free 1-year trial of Resampling Stats through the software download link on the main Stats course webpage.  You can also visit the Resampling Stats website and download the 1-year trial here.

StatCrunch: this is a very affordable web-based statistical software program, which also has simulation and resampling capabilities. Runs over the web, so can be used with both Windows and Mac. Resampling is not as intuitive as with Box Sampler and Resampling Stats for Excel.  Learn more at www.statcrunch.com.

NOTE for StatCrunch Users:  On all platforms, we recommend that you use the New version of StatCrunch.  All examples in the textbook supplement are based on the New version of StatCrunch.

R: R is a powerful opensource statistical scripting language that is widely recognized as an industry standard.  You will need to have familiarity with R and RStudio prior to taking the Statistics 1, 2 or 3 courses if you choose to use R as your software package.  Comprehensive supplemental materials are available for R users.  You can learn more about R here and RStudio here.
