Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Emphasizing data collection and exploratory analysis, this book covers different methods for describing data, probability, estimation, linear regression and correlation, and variance. The authors (two from California Polytechnic State U, one from George Washington High School) focus on graphical analysis throughout the text and integrate the graphing calculator into the problems.
