Written by two of the most respected leaders in statistics education, this text can be covered in its entirety in a one-term introductory statistics course. With its readable presentation and common-sense tone, this book promotes learning, understanding, and motivation while presenting statistics in a real world context for students. The authors demonstrate that statistics is a valuable tool for a variety of disciplines. As a result, the applications, examples, case studies, and exercises contain data from a wide variety of areas of interest, including the physical and social sciences, public opinion and political science, business, economics, and medicine. A strong computer component is also built upon exercises that rely on technology, offering clear instruction in the use of key technologies, numerous examples of graphical output, and a focus on interpreting that output. Providing maximum flexibility, the text integrates clearly marked sections for the TI-83, MINITAB, and Microsoft® Excel that can be included or omitted as necessary.
