Overview

Clear, accessible, and teachable, Stats: Modeling the World leads with practical data analysis and graphics to engage students and get them thinking statistically from the start. Through updated, relevant examples and data—and the authors’ signature Think, Show, and Tell problem-solving method—students learn what we can find in data, why we find it interesting, and how to report it to others. The new Fourth Edition is even more engaging than previous editions, builds on the innovative features that have made the first three editions so popular, and includes revisions designed to make it even easier for students to put the concepts of statistics together in a coherent whole.

I have used this and the previous edition of the book with great success. Students who follow the step-by-step examples when responding to questions do extremely well on the AP exam. I have had at least 10% of my students score 5's on the exam every year, which matches closely with the results across the country. I have many students who comment that this is the best textbook they have used. It is easy to understand, provides a solid development of the material, and many interesting problems and investigations for students to use.

I was shocked to discover that this book had AP on the cover after using it with my students. The content is pretty interesting, but rambles and is way too corny. Too much time spent on content that's not on the AP, and the formulas and tables in the book don't match the AP either. Many content errors that don't match the AP grading rubrics. This book looks nice and sounds nice, but definitely hurt my teaching for one year. It won't happen again.
