STATISTICS BY LEARNING OBJECTIVE helps you master your statistics course by including in-question videos, easily-scannable narrative, a plethora of examples, and quick help tools in the homework. This course is specially designed in concert with dozens of students to efficiently help you learn statistics by providing you what you need, how you need it, when you need it. Learning objectives help you focus on what to learn at the moment. Each learning objective contains 6 examples, which are each major-specific, so you can see how statistics applies in your context.

  • NOTE: This title is also available in WebAssign with Corequisite Support that provides the flexibility to match any corequisite implementation model and empowers you to deliver high quality content at the right time for your students at an affordable price.

  • NEW for Fall 2020 - Turn your students into statistical thinkers with the Statistical Analysis and Learning Tool (SALT). SALT is an easy-to-use data analysis tool created with the intro-level student in mind. It contains dynamic graphics and allows students to manipulate data sets in order to visualize statistics and gain a deeper conceptual understanding about the meaning behind data. SALT is built by Cengage, comes integrated in Cengage WebAssign Statistics courses and available to use standalone.

  • Organized by learning objective, each learning objective contains 6 examples that use a different major-specific context to show students how statistics applies in their context.

  • Master It Tutorials break big problems down into smaller, more manageable steps to help students get to the root of the question.

  • Watch It solution videos for a subset of quantitative problems. One algorithmic version of each problem having a Watch It video is shown.

  • Stats in Practice videos from the news introduce each chapter so that students can understand real-world context of what they’re learning and stay engaged.

  • Using the JMP interactive applet embedded within WebAssign, students can interact with visualizations of real data.

  • Pre-made Labs make it easier for students to apply their knowledge.

  • Project Milestones allow one place to ideate, collaborate, and submit a longer-term project.

  • Concept questions provide a new way of engaging with non-computational questions. Students enter a free response before they choose a multiple-choice answer, which helps students be better prepared for tests.

  • Test banks provide a pool of assessments for use in quizzes, tests, and exams.

  • STATISTICS BY LEARNING OBJECTIVE is written in a blog-like fashion for easy readability, scanning, and understandability.
