Weiss's Introductory Statistics, Eighth Edition, features a thorough presentation of the reasoning behind statistics, balanced with analysis and exploration of real data. This text emphasizes the development of statistical thinking rather than rote drill and practice. This new edition continues Weiss's tradition of cutting-edge statistical pedagogy and seamless integration of technology, and includes hundreds of new exercises with carefully cited data from journals, magazines, newspapers, and Web sites. Introductory Statistics, Eighth Edition, contains a parallel presentation of the P-value and critical value approaches to hypothesis testing and promotes active learning and critical thinking, particularly in the exercises and end-of-chapter projects. The scope and flexibility of this Weiss text make it suitable for a one- or two-semester course.
