Summary

Moore and McCabe's best-selling Introduction to the Practice of Statistics sets the standard for introductory statistics courses by focusing on data analysis, statistical reasoning, and the way statistics is used in everyday life. Students see clearly that statistics is not just a series of formula-driven exercises, but a powerful tool for understanding the world we live in. Incorporating the latest technology, the Third Edition is designed to help students explore statistics with more ease and comprehension than ever
before.

  • Trend-setting, best-selling introduction to statistics text
  • Elementary in mathematical level, but conceptually rich in statistical ideas
  • Provides a firm foundation in "data analysis" before moving on to probability and the ideas and methods of formal inference
  • Contains many interesting real data sets for students to work with
  • Includes computer exercises within each chapter, but the text does not require use of any specific technology (except a simple "two-variable" statistics calculator)
  • Reorganized Text offers instructors more options. Teachers can choose material after Chapter Eight by making each natural unit into a separate, shorter, chapter. It also results in a three-part structure that reinforces the major divisions of the book.
  • Many New and Revised Exercises and Examples based on new data sets--including more about business and finance.
  • New Treatments of many often-difficult topics, such as conditional probability (Chapter 4) and inference for two-way tables (Chapter 9).
  • "Beyond the Basics" Sections briefly introduce newer methods that are now becoming standard parts of statistical practice. Topics include density estimation, scatterplot smoothers, capture-recapture sampling, Weibull distributions in reliability, and the bootstrap.
  • Four Color Art enhances statistical graphics throughout the text, while informal, user-friendly scales and labels provide easy comprehension.
  • Rewritten Text enhances book's accessibility without losing the richness of discussion.
  • Includes more frequent subsection headings and boxes.
  • Updated Technology now assumes the use of at least a "two-variable statistics" calculator.
  • New Statistical Output includes examples from a wider range of software, such as the TI-83 graphing calculator, the Excel spreadsheet, and specific statistical software such as Data Desk, Minitab, and SAS.
