Discovering Important Statistical Concepts Using Spreadsheets (DISCUS)

Neville Hunt, Coventry University, School of MIS

DISCUS is a set of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets designed for teaching first year undergraduate level statistics. Students can use them on their own and do not need prior knowledge of Excel. Topics include descriptive statistics, probability, binomial distributions, and regression etc. This page has links to more info about each topic, an independent review of DISCUS, and a DISCUS download. It also links to information on the creation of a Spanish version of DISCUS called Tutorial para el Aprendizaje y Razonamiento Estadstico Asistidos (TAREA).
