Summary

This text is divided into 59 short sections, allowing instructors to assign only those sections needed to meet the goals of the course. Humorous riddles allow students to check their work without providing the answers; if the answer to the riddle makes sense, then the student knows they have answered the question correctly. Covers all major statistics typically introduced in a first-semester course. New to this edition: expanded coverage on the value of descriptive and inferential statistics, the limitations of inferential statistics, and how to evaluate practical significance after determining statistical significance. Also new: fifteen additional cartoons that will keep your students smiling while working through this book.
