Realistic applications and the use of statistical software and spreadsheets motivate and show them how statistics is relevant to their future careers.

Each in-text example stresses the following elements:

2. Solve the problem (by hand, with Minitab "RM", with Excel)

3. Interpret results (What does the solution mean in the context of the problem?)
