Summary

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.

Features :

  • Trend-setting, best-selling introductory statistics text.
  • Elementary in mathematical level, but conceptually rich in statistical ideas.
  • Provides a firm foundation in "data analysis" before moving on to probability and the ideas and methods of formal inference.
  • Contains many interesting real data sets for students to work with
  • Includes computer exercises within each chapter, but the text does not require use of any specific technology (except a simple "two-variable" statistics calculator).
  • Full-color art enhances statistical graphics throughout the text, while informal, user-friendly scales and labels provide easy comprehension.
  • Acclaimed problem sets--Moore and McCabe have received more praise for their problem sets than any other introductory statistics textbook authors. Instructors continually cite their originality, variety, and effectiveness.

New to this Edition :

  • Over 400 new exercises with hundreds more revised and updated, giving instructors a wide range of fresh options for quizzes, assignments, and exams.
  • Over 300 supplementary exercises are available on the book's CD-ROM.
  • Frequent data updates within examples where relevant. This ensures that the real data students are analyzing is most accurate and current available.
  • New applet-based exercises within section and chapter exercise sets, denoted by a special icon. These give students practice exploring manipulable data and graphical outputs. Applets appear on both the CD-ROM and the Web site.
  • Increased statistical software output. You will notice more output screens from Minitab, Excel, the TI-83 Graphing Calculator as well as new SPSS screens.
  • "Exploring the Web" boxes in most chapters. These boxes involve students in online research and data collection, pointing the way to content-relevant Web sites--from the Census Bureau to interactive applets custom-made for this book.
