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

For all practical purposes. Statistics :( Visual )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 8 focuses on exploratory data analysis, emphasizing that the human eye and brain are the best known devices to see and recognize patterns. Introduces histograms, medians, quartiles, scatterplots and boxplots. Program 9 analyzes how we can predict long-term patterns of chance events by looking at the operation of a gambling casino. Introduces elementary probability concepts along with an analysis of normal curves, standard deviation and expected value
For all practical purposes( Visual )

6 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 47 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
For all practical purposes. Management science :( Visual )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 1 demonstrates the scope of applicability of management science concepts to algorithms. Program 2 explains the use of graphs in solving routing problems
