Use of the Minitab statistical software package is a component of Stat 205, 213 and 217.
Minitab is available in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics computer labs (MS317, MS515, MS521, MS571), and can be used freely when there is no class scheduled in a computer lab.
If students wish to install Minitab on their own computer, they have several options:
- Students in Stat 205 (Fall 2013) may choose to buy a textbook which comes with a licensed copy of the software.
- The instructors of Stat 213/217 are trying to get the bookstore to order copies of the software, which students could purchase at a deeply discounted rate. It was estimated that this would cost between $15-$20, but there is no sign of these being present in the bookstore.
- Students may buy or rent the full version of the software from onthehub. Prices are approximately as follows:
- 6 month: $33
- Perpetual: $110
- One month trial: Free
