Roxy Peck, Chris Olsen, and Jay Devore's new edition uses real data and attention-grabbing examples to introduce students to the study of statistics and data analysis. Traditional in structure yet modern in approach, this text guides students through an intuition-based learning process that stresses interpretation and communication of statistical information. Simple notation--including frequent substitution of words for symbols--helps students grasp concepts and cement their comprehension. Hands-on activities and interactive applets allow students to practice statistics firsthand. INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS AND DATA ANALYSIS, 5e includes updated coverage of most major technologies, as well as expanded coverage of probability.

Please contact your Cengage learning consultant for more information about this alternative and other alternative customized options available to you. (See the information listed below under the heading “Alternate TOC” for specific coverage in the two chapters.)
