Noted for its clear and consise, statistically accurate discussions that constantly probe beyond the procedures to teach students the reasoning behind a method. The authors discuss the assumptions that all statistical models make, and motivate discussions using real-life examples. By means of good motivation, sound explanations, and an abundance of illustrations given in a real-world context, Statistics: Principles and Methods, Fourth Edition emphasizes more than just a superficial understanding of the material.This book is intended for students who do not have a strong background in mathematics but seek to learn the basic ideas of statistics and their application in a variety of practical settings. The core material of the book is common to almost all first courses in statistics and is designed to be covered well within a one-semester course in introductory statistics for freshman to seniors.
