For courses in Introductory Statistics.
Data analysis for everyone.
Data in the real world are dynamic and sometimes messy. This complexity can intimidate students who are new to math and statistics ― but it’s also what makes statistics so interesting!
Embracing these characteristics, Introductory Statistics teaches students how to explore and analyze real data to answer real-world problems. Crafted by authors who are active in the classroom and in the statistics education community, the 3rd Edition pairs a clear, conversational writing style with new and frequent opportunities to apply statistical thinking. Its tone and learning aids are designed to equip any student to analyze, interpret, and tell a story about modern data, regardless of the student’s mathematical proficiency.
