W.H. Freeman’s acclaimed adaptive quizzing and personalized learning program that puts the concept of "testing to learn" into action. Game-like quizzing motivates students to engage with their course, and reporting tools help teachers get a handle on what their class needs to focus on.
These multimedia tutorials explore important concepts and procedures in a presentation that combines video, audio, and interactive features. The newly revised format includes built-in, assignable assessments, and a bright new interface.
Video Tech Manuals
With these brief instructional videos, students get basic introductions to working with standard statistical software programs and technology.  Video manuals are available for Excel, SPSS, TI-83/84 calculators, JMP, and Minitab.
Statistical Applets
Applet-based activities give students hands-on opportunities to familiarize themselves with important statistical concepts and procedures, in an interactive setting that allows them to manipulate variables and see the results graphically. Icons at specific points in the textbook indicate when there is a corresponding Applet online.
New! Stepped Tutorials
These new exercise tutorials (2-3 per chapter) are easily assignable and assessable.  The tutorials are centered on algorithmically generating quizzing with step-by-step feedback to help students work their way toward the correct solution.
