- [Voiceover] In this movie, I would like to provide you…with a quick tour of Minitab's user interface.…The first thing you see when you open Minitab…is a screen showing two windows open,…one above the other.…At the top window, with a white space showing,…is the session window.…This is where the session commands and…results of your analysis will be displayed.…In the bottom window you see what looks like a spreadsheet,…this is the Minitab worksheet.…While this may look and feel like a spreadsheet,…such as Excel, it is not.…
Minitab is column-based.…Unlike a spreadsheet,…where you an apply formulas to any cell,…Mintab commands apply only to columns of data.…Across the top of the screen are the main menu items.…I would like to provide highlights of each,…from left to right.…Starting on the left, is the File menu.…If you left-click your mouse on File,…you see functions such as New, Open, Save, and Save As.…And Save As Projects, as well as Save As Worksheets.…So, what's a worksheet, and what's a project?…A worksheet contains data only, nothing else.…
Dr. Richard Chua shows how to import and organize data; open, save, and share Minitab worksheets and projects; create graphs and charts; and use descriptive statistics and statistical tests in Minitab to make inferences and data-driven decisions. Then learn how to make inferences on continuous data—running normality tests, variance tests, correlations, and simple regression tests. Finally, discover how to share your findings with others using reports and simple copy-and-paste techniques. Start watching to learn why Minitab is one of the world's most popular statistical software tools.
