As someone that has taught basic statistics for almost thirty years, I have seen the rise in the use of computers and other technologies in the classroom. I have also taught most of the courses in an undergraduate computer science curriculum, so I am well versed in how technology can advance the teaching of courses.
In mathematics courses in general and statistics in particular, I tend to avoid the use of powerful calculators and computers. While most of the students are experienced with the use of technology that does not generally extend to thinking while using it. I have seen students that can play a cell phone like a concert violin freeze up when they try to use even a simple function on a calculator or perform a statistical test on a computer. I find nothing more frustrating than having to spend a great deal of time tutoring a student on how to use their calculator.
Therefore, in the area of statistics books where the product differentiation features tend to be small, I place an emphasis on the subdued use of technology, which is what the authors of this book have done. While statistics packages such as Minitab and Excel are mentioned and briefly explained, the emphasis is on the ideas and concepts behind the tests being performed. Instead of being bombarded by three different programs that will perform the test, the students are faced with an emphasis on what the test measured and what it means when a result has a specific form.
The coverage is such that anyone that wants to use it as a text in a basic statistics class can do so. Topics covered in such courses are very standard and are covered in roughly the first 60% of the book. The second part is where the "Business and Economics" of the title is expressed.
