well i dunno about the 'pearsons' bit, but i do know how to calculate product moment correlation coeficient PMCC, its very very simple, but a huge formula that you need to break down into chunks, after you get ur head around the formula its just a matter of making sure u lump the values in correctly. iv just been taught PMCC so its fresh in my head, but honestly i cant be bothered to explain it through typed words, so i suggest you go look in a textbook that i use for Stats: Heinemann Modular Mathematics for Edexcel AS and A-level: Statistics 1 by Greg Attwood, Gill Dyer & Gordon Skipworth ISBN: 0-435-51082-7 Its a blue coloured book, and the bit that ur looking for starts in section 6.3 page 117
Good luck, and believe me its alot easier than you may think!
