Breaking through the World of Statistics
The content features information drawn from diverse disciplines including business and sports. Over the course of the text, students will learn about statistics and their measurement, data organization, descriptive statistics, and probability, both discrete and continuous. They will also study sampling and sampling distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, analysis of the variance, and both simple and multiple linear regression.
The book has been developed to demonstrate that statistics is not a single discipline, but rather has broad applications for numerous areas of life and work. Breaking through the World of Statistics is designed for introductory statistics courses and to successfully prepare students for intermediate-level study.
