ALEKS stats question
I'm still working my way through ALEKS' Intro to Stats, and I have what is probably a silly question.  How do I learn how to use the calculator?  I've never used a calculator for any function more advanced than the square root button, so I don't even know how standard or non-standard the ALEKS calculator is, and I'm not sure what to look up.

Rachel, whatever you do, do NOT forget to write down every single problem type. Some of the problems are so similarly worded, that you'll need a physical record of them to go back to and note the differences. Sometimes it's just a single word that changes how a problem is worked out. Writing it down also works a different part of the brain, which aids in remembering the formulas later on. I used up half a note book on Intro to Stats.  I had charts, graphs, drawings, you name it. I would even tape notes all around my desk and walls so that I could see them during the tests. Yes Stats was difficult, but I got through it in ten days all because of my trusty notebook. I don't know how anyone could do it without proper notes. Best of luck.
