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 using data, and how to make decisions based on data. With a clear, unintimidating writing style and carefully chosen pedagogy, Introductory Statistics: Exploring the World through Datamakes data analysis accessible to all students. Guided Exercisessupport students by building their confidence as they learn to solve problems. Snapshotssummarize statistical procedures and concepts for convenient studying. While this text assumes the use of statistical software, formulas are presented as an aid to understanding the concepts rather than the focus of study. Check Your Techfeatures demonstrate how students will get the same numerical value by-hand as when using statistical software.
