With its focus on data analysis, statistical reasoning, and the way statisticians actually work, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics (IPS) helped revolutionize the general statistics classroom. Freed from an overload of computations, students were able to go beyond the raw numbers to see what the data actually meant. In the years since, the IPS data analysis approach has gone from an attractive alternative to the method of choice for most instructors.
But the revolution doesn't stop there. Now Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is available now in a spectacular new edition.
