Overview

This edition features the exact same content as the traditional book in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value—this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.

We live in a data-driven world, and this is a book about understanding and working with that data. In order to be informed citizens, authors Rob Gould and Colleen Ryan believe that learning statistics extends beyond the classroom to an essential life skill. They teach students of all math backgrounds how to think about data, how to reason about data, and how to make decisions based on data.

With a clear, unintimidating writing style carefully-chosen pedagogy, Introductory Statistics: Exploring the World through Data makes data analysis accessible to all students. Guided Exercises support students by building their confidence as they learn to solve problems. Snapshots summarize statistical procedures and concepts for convenient studying. While this book assumes the use of statistical software, formulas are presented as an aid to understanding the concepts rather than the focus of study. Check Your Tech features demonstrate how students will get the same numerical value by-hand as when using statistical software.
