When you took statistics in school, your instructor gave you specially prepared datasets, told you what analyses to perform, and checked your work to see if it was correct. Once you left the class, though, you were on your own. Did you know how to create and prepare a dataset for analysis? Did you know how to select and generate appropriate graphics and statistics? Did you wonder why you were forced to take the class and when you would ever use what you learned? That's where Stats with Cats can help you out. The book will show you:
- How to decide what you should put in your dataset and how to arrange the data.
- How to decide what graphs and statistics to produce for your data.
- How you can create a statistical model to answer your data analysis questions.
The book also provides enough feline support to minimize any stress you may experience.
