You should not print out the textbook. It will not disappear. You can download the PDF for viewing on your own machine if this is handy for you. You will probably read some sections more carefully than others. Sections are referenced in the tentative scheule as needed.
Statistics textbooks vary in details; you will note differences if you look through other texts and references. We will use the conventions in this textbook. One weakness of this textbook is that the tables are difficult to use and, notably, difficult to print out in readable form. Here are some common tables in better form:
Standard Normal, Binomial, and T Tables
You may have a calculator already, but make sure that it is a scientific calculator which has the needed statistical functions. We will cover this in class.
I recommend, however, the calculator TI-30XS Multiview. This does what you need. Fancier calculators may be more difficult to use. The bookstore sells the TI-30XS Multiview for under $20 . Bring your calculator to class. You must have it for exams and quizzes, so bring it to class everyday and get familiar with it.
Here are some online calculators, however, you may use for your homework.
Basic Statistics and Standard Normal Distribution Calculators

This course addresses FDLTCC liberal education requirements (Competencies Across the Curriculum) in problem solving and technology. You should come to class everyday! This is the easy way to do well in any course, and it is especially true for math classes. There are exercises in the text for you to do, and these are usually answered at the end of each chapter. You will also get homework assignments on handouts, and you should complete then hand these in at the beginning of the next class. Your homework grade is based on completing and turning in these homework handouts. You will also get sample exams which will be similar in length and content to the in-class exams. Let me know if there is are accommodations you need for the class.
