Minitab® Tutorial

This material is used as part of the Elementary Statistics course at Thiel College. The main text used in that course is Elementary Statistics 5th Edition by Larson and Farber, published by Pearson Prentice Hall.

All references in this document about page and problem numbers are based on that book. The order in which the chapters are covered in the course is 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11; but not every section of every chapter is included. There are 19 Minitab lessons, and the table to the right indicates the section number(s) from the text that provides the prerequisite statistical background for each lesson. Each lesson is in its own PDF file, which you can read or print by clicking on the lesson number in the table. Lesson 1 includes a cover page, a table of contents, copyright page, dedication page, and a preface.

Other tutorials by one or both of these authors include Mathematica Tutorial and HP 50g Calculator Tutorials. The second of those includes a lesson on statistical applications of the calculator.



The Minitab® Tutorial was created by Dr. Tim Zgonc, Thiel College, in August 1996. The fifth edition was revised for Minitab® Version 15 and Windows XP by Dr. Merv Newton and Dr. Jeonghun Kim, Thiel College, in July 2007.
