# Stats : Data and Models - With CD - 05 edition

ISBN13: 978-0321200549
ISBN10: 0321200543

Summary: This book is written for the introductory statistics course and students majoring in any field. It is written in an approachable, informal style that invites students to think about how to reason when data is available. Stats: Data and Models (SDM), as compared to Intro Stats, offers Math Boxes, which present the mathematical underpinnings of the statistical methods and concepts, and advanced topics (Ch. 28-31) that are often covered in a two-semester course, plus the inclusion of non-parametrics. SDM carries a core focus on statistical thinking and understanding analyses throughout the text, emphasizing how statistics helps us to understand the world. The book also recognizes the central role that technology plays in statistics. SDM is organized into short teachable chapters that focus on one topic at a time, offering instructors flexibility in selecting topics while students receive digestible chunks of information that build on previous material before moving on.

Features

• Math Boxes: Offered in most chapters, students will find the mathematical underpinnings of the statistical methods and concepts called out in Math Boxes throughout the text. Set apart from the narrative, math boxes provide the proofs, derivations, and justifications so that students may refer to the underlying mathematics for greater depth.
• Think, Show, Tell: The mantra of Think, Show, and Tell is repeated in EVERY chapter and used to illustrate worked examples. "Think," emphasizes the importance of thinking about a statistics question, asking What do we know? What do we hope to learn? Are the assumptions and conditions satisfied? "Show" holds the mechanics of calculating results -- something for which the technology is relied upon whenever possible. The "Tell" step reports the findings and explains the results as a clear account of what has been learned.
• Step-By-Step Examples: Each chapter has step-by-step examples. These examples work through a complete solution to a statistics problem, illustrating an ideal or model student response (including Think, Show, and Tell steps) and commenting on it in an adjacent column.
• What Can Go Wrong?: Each chapter includes a discussion of common misuses, misapplications, and misunderstanding of statistics to help students recognize and avoid them. The slander that "you can prove anything with statistics" arises from the misuse of statistical methods. This book arms students with the weapons to detect statistical error and debunk misuses of statistics.
