Summary: New Features
Many elements in the book were updated based on newer, real data. New "Speaking of Statistics", "Critical Thinking Challenges", "Statistics Today", and worked examples were added to this edition.
300 new exercises most based on actual data were added to the book. Additionally, many exercises were rewritten asking students to interpret the results th...show moreey just found.
A new feature, "Applying the Concepts" was added to each section and appears prior to each exercise set. Most contain open-ended questions that require critical thinking and interpretation. "Applying the Concepts" can be used for homework assignments or used as topics for in-class discussion or group work.
