Written for the one-term course in introductory statistics that can be found in departments of mathematics,business,social science,and education at two- and four- year schools. High-school algebra is the only prerequesite. Statistics: A First Course is written in an informal style without omitting the more difficult concepts. Sanders utilizes an intuitive presentation that encourages students to use a commonsense approach to data analysis. Over 2100 problems drawn from health care,business and economics,the social and physical sciences,engineering,education,and leisure activities demonstrate the wide range of questions that can be answered with the help of statistical analysis techniques. To enhance the appeal and readability of the text,scores of minicases,Statitics in Action,are found in the margins. These minicases provide examples of "real world" statistical applications and can be used to stimulate class discussions. Additionally,the material on probability has been extensively revised and updated and a timely chapter (Ch. 10) on Quality Control has been written for the new edition. Examples showing how computer statistical software packages may be used to eliminate computational drudgery and support analysis and decision-making efforts are integrated throughout the text. A Computer Exercise section at the end of each chapter gives students further practice in using statistical software.
