Learn Statistics for iPhone - Savior to Many Undergrad Students

February 8, 2010 in Education (E)

[prMac.com] Waretown, NJ - Announcing that GO2STAT LLC, the developers of Learn Statistics 1.1, today released the latest update for their unique software. LearnStat, as the app is nicknamed, covers complete statistical calculations for undergraduate study. The application helps students to understand how to perform statistical data analysis through the use of dynamic graphs, examples and detailed notes of explanation.

Figuring out complex statistical formulas can prove very difficult to learn. Thanks to GO2STAT developers, undergraduate students now have help in that area.

The LearnStat application is the result of a statistician's passion for the subject. Company CEO, M. Dong, who has a Masters Degree in statistics, explains, "When I was learning statistics, I saw a lot of students struggling to understand the abstract concepts. Often, they lost that battle. Now, after many years working as statistician, I have found a better way to teach statistics and data analysis. Statistics is very useful in a lot of areas in today's information world and I believe this App can help a lot of people in their career."

Part of the 'better' method that Dong refers to is app's use of interactive dynamic graphs to help students gain an intuitive and quick understanding of difficult statistical concepts. Whereas other apps only provide hard to understand calculation results, LearnStat calculates values and allows users to tap or swipe a graph to see the highlighted data and corresponding points, as well as a breakdown of how the calculation was arrived at. Students gain a step-by-step understanding of the formula. This process is normally only available in expensive statistics software like JMP and SPSS.

The app's calculator lets users enter data and get results immediately. Since it covers almost all of the calculation work in undergraduate statistics courses and offers examples to help with the comprehension of data analysis, LearnStat is the perfect, fully rounded program to assist stat students to succeed in their undergraduate studies.

Here are the topics that LearnStat teaches:
* Histogram
* Descriptive statistics
* Quantiles
* Box-and-whisker plot
* One sample t-test
* Two sample t-test
* Matched-Pair t-test
* Regression
* Contingency table / Chi-Square test
* Distributions
- Binomial

As LearnStat is the only complete and comprehensive iPhone app on the market, it offers a graph, analysis report, analysis parameters, data and help for each topic covered. Students can learn how to prepare data in data view, learn how to conduct a test with parameters and even gain insight into the difficult concept of p-value in the graph. The app's Notes section gives a detail explanation for the graph and result statistics.
