The new edition features increased emphasis on the computing technologies commonly used in such coureses.

New to This Edition

- "Technology Step by Step" sections show how to solve basic problems using Minitab software, the TI-83 graphing calculator, or Excel.
- More examples and exercises based on actual data.

Features

- Statistics Today problems open every chapter. These real-life problems, accompanied by a photo or graphic and sometimes a news item, show students the relevance of the chapter's topic. The answer is provided at chapter end.
- Procedure Tables embody the book's step by step approach. These boxes summarize methods for solving various types of common problems. Worked examples include EVERY step.
- Critical Thinking Challenges at the end of each chapter extend chapter concepts into new areas, inviting students to think about and apply what they have learned.
