Abstract:

A statistical software package is developed for the course of chemical analysis. The software calculates cumulative distribution functions and inverse cumulative distribution functions of normal, t, χ2, and F distributions; it also provides critical values for tests of statistical significance. The software is designed to substitute for traditional data tables that are insufficient and obscure. Statistical problems can be solved more efficiently with the software than with traditional data tables, which enables students to focus on understanding statistical principles and interpreting results. The software provides information through an intuitive interface, a graph, and natural interactions. Both Matlab and Android versions are presented, and free of charge.

Key words: Mathematical statistics, Software development, Matlab, Android
