Structured activities use templated Excel spreadsheets and color-coded cells to show inputs that are needed to solve the problems. Free-form activities offer little structure and require you to build the spreadsheet independently, using only the starting data and problem narrative.
The Microsoft Excel Online activities (2) Exploring Statistics offer interactive visualizations that engage with the Lean Forward interactivity to help you see the statistical concepts being presented directly within MindTap.
In the Microsoft Excel Online activities (3) Review and Assignments, you will use the book’s DATAfiles as a content base to complete each Chapter Assignments and Interpreting the Results. Students can download all Excel DATAfiles (Excel) by clicking on the MindTap link, Course Materials: Access DATAfiles, Tip Sheets, and More.
For the Chapter Assignments, you identify the correct statistical technique by focusing on the problem objective and data type. Then, you compute the statistics using the Use the Analysis ToolPak to Perform Complex Data Analysis (Links to an external site.) or XLMiner Analysis ToolPak (Links to an external site.), and, ultimately, interpret results in the context of the problem. You examine functional areas of business, as data-driven examples demonstrate how marketing managers, financial analysts, accountants, and economists use statistical applications.

The Interpreting the Results activity assesses your ability to analyze data and interpret the results.
