Written by two of the most respected leaders in statistics education, this text can be covered in its entirety in a one-term introductory statistics course. With its readable presentation and common-sense tone, this book promotes learning, understanding, and motivation while presenting statistics in a real world context for students. The authors demonstrate that statistics is a valuable tool for a variety of disciplines. As a result, the applications, examples, case studies, and exercises contain data from a wide variety of areas of interest, including the physical and social sciences, public opinion and political science, business, economics, and medicine. A strong computer component is also built upon exercises that rely on technology, offering clear instruction in the use of key technologies, numerous examples of graphical output, and a focus on interpreting that output. Providing maximum flexibility, the text integrates clearly marked sections for the TI-83, MINITAB, and Microsoft® Excel that can be included or omitted as necessary.Kuby, Patricia J. is the author of 'Just the Essentials of Elementary Statistics With Infotrac', published 2004 under ISBN 9780534999452 and ISBN 053499945X.
