10 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describing distributions deals with numerical measures of specific aspects of distribution, such as center (mean, median), spread (percentiles, boxplots, standard deviation), and resistance. Normal distributions covers density curves as smoothed histograms (mean, median, percentiles for density curves) and normal distributions (locating the mean and standard deviation, the 68-95-99.7 rule). Uses animated graphics, on-location footage, and interviews
Statistics : decisions through data by David S Moore( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For all practical purposes( Visual )

6 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sol Garfunkel takes the viewer on an exploration of statistics and their related display and interpretative disciplines. Methods of gathering useable reliable data, such as randomization, and sampling are discussed. Methods of graphical displaying data from histograms to three dimensional computer arrays are shown. Statistics are shown to be useful when patterns of events are more important than individual events themselves. Finally the methods for stating the reliability of the results are explored
Algebra : in simplest terms( Visual )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an instructional series of 26 half-hour programs for high school, college, and adult learners, or for teachers seeking to review the subject matter. Host Sol Garfunkel explains concepts that may baffle many students, while graphic illustrations and on-location examples demonstrate how algebra is used for solving real-world problems. Algebra is important in today's world, used in such diverse fields as agriculture, sports, genetics, social science, and medicine. This series helps students connect algebra's mathematical themes and applications to daily life
