Now you can master the basics of statistics and learn how to use this knowledge in real life situations with Brase/Brase/Dolor/Siebert’s UNDERSTANDING BASIC STATISTICS, 9th Edition. This updated edition uses a reader-friendly approach filled with clear guidance and informal advice designed to help you grasp the concepts and see how they relate to your life. You learn to think statistically and perhaps even enjoy a subject that once inspired anxiety. Updates, learning features and real data from a variety of sources, including journals and news sources, keep learning interesting as you refine your critical thinking and statistical skills. Optional coverage demonstrates how to use graphing calculators, Microsoft® Excel®, JMP®, MINITAB®, MINITAB EXPRESS and SPSS®. Complete online resources include labs, projects and videos as part of WebAssign. The Statistical Analysis and Learning Tool (SALT) is also available to help you manipulate data sets and visualize statistics and the meaning behind the data.

• UPDATES EMPHASIZE DIVERSITY WITH INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE THAT’S WELCOMING FOR ALL READERS. The authors have carefully edited this edition to ensure inclusiveness and diversity in the examples and explanations used throughout.

• NEW EXAMPLES AND EXERCISES REFLECT TODAY’S SITUATIONS AND CHALLENGES. Examples and exercises include relatable, timely content that appeals to today’s students and demonstrates the relevance of what they are learning.

• MORE WEBASSIGN EXERCISES AND INTERACTIVE SIMULATIONS PROVIDE HANDS-ON PRACTICE WORKING WITH STATISTICS. The authors have added more exercises to this edition which are also available in WebAssign. In addition, new interactive simulations allow students to more deeply engage with statistical concepts.

• UPDATES TO “CRITICAL THINKING” AND “VIEWPOINT” ACTIVITIES SUPPORT LEARNING. Revised and new activities throughout this edition support your students’ mastery of statistical concepts. Students learn how to apply the skills they are learning to challenges both in the classroom and in real, daily life.

• STATISTICAL ANALYSIS AND LEARNING TOOL (SALT) PROVIDES AN EASYTO-USE DATA ANALYSIS RESOURCE. SALT enables introductory statistics students to engage in data manipulation, analysis, and interpretation without getting bogged down in complex computations. Accompanying exercises in WebAssign utilize SALT.

• MEANINGFUL INFORMATION FROM “EXPAND YOUR KNOWLEDGE” PROBLEM SECTIONS IS NOW INTEGRATED THROUGHOUT THE TEXT. The authors have streamlined content to ensure all exercises address topics covered in the text. Separate “Expand Your Knowledge” section no longer appears in this edition to address additional topics
