Did you accidentally type Maen instead of > Mean in Mathematica? No, but my version was Mathematica 4.2, not 5. In the Teacher's Edition 1.1 for MacOS X - the Windows version and the classic MacOS version uses the Mathematica 4.1 kernel. Furthermore, one of two the books I've purchased talks about: Needs["Statistics`Master`"] instead of Needs["Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`"]. "Getting Started with Mathematics", isbn 0-471-24050-8, covers version 2 and 3 of program, and "The Mathematica Book 5th Edition" by Stephen Wolfram with version 5. In version 5 "Mean" has been moved to the part of Mathematica functions that loads automatically. But, now it works. BTW, is there a way to automatically load packages? The method mentioned in The Mathematica Book 5th Edition [page 401, 2.7.11, DeclarePackage] seem to demand a file with declarations that are explicitly called. -- Per Erik Rønne
