Additional information and activities
using these data sets are available in the *Technology Guide* (ISBN:
0-618-20557-8) and *Excel Guide* (ISBN: 0-618-20556-X) that accompany
*Understandable Statistics*, 7e. The *Technology Guide* focuses
on the TI-83Plus and Minitab (in addition to the software program ComputerStat)
while the *Excel Guide* provides detailed information for Excel. All
activities are correlated to topics covered in the student text. To purchase
