Many mathematical statistics texts are heavily oriented toward a rigorous mathematical development of probability and statistics, without emphasizing contemporary statistical practice. MODERN MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS WITH APPLICATIONS strikes a balance between mathematical foundations and statistical practice. Accomplished authors Jay Devore and Ken Berk first engage students with real-life problems and scenarios and then provide them with both foundational context and theory. This book follows the spirit of the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) recommendation that every math student should study statistics and probability with an emphasis on data analysis.

**Benefits:**

- This is the first book to balance the mathematical foundations and the statistical practice. By first engaging students with real-life problem scenarios and exercises, they then are ready to learn the mathematical foundations that follow.
- Accomplished authors Jay Devore and Ken Berk bring their successful hallmarks of careful explanations and excellent exercises and examples to the mathematical statistics course.
- There is a focus on the use of statistical software, with computer output from Minitab, S Plus, and SAS appearing throughout the text.
- There are nearly 1,500 problems in this text, requiring students to understand sophisticated notation, concepts, and arguments. Though the focus is on thought and analysis, there is no sacrifice of rigor in this text.
