Introductory Statistics (ISBN10: 0123743885; ISBN13: 9780123743886)
ISBN13: 978-0123743886
ISBN10: 0123743885

Summary: In this revised text, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas, and an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the statistical methods. To quote from the preface, "It is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data."
Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples.
  • Ross's clear writing style leads students easily through descriptive and inferential statistics
  • Hundreds of exercises assess students' conceptual and computational understanding
  • Real data sets from current issues draw from a variety of disciplines
  • Statistics in Perspective highlights demonstrate real-world application of techniques and concepts
  • Historical Perspectives sections profile prominent statisticians and events
  • Chapter Introductions pose realistic statistical situations
  • Chapter Summaries and Key Terms reinforce learning
  • A detachable Formula Card includes frequently used tables and formulas to facilitate studying
  • Enclosed CD-ROM contains programs that can be used to solve basic computation problems
