This text focuses on the analysis of data and the interpretation of results rather than the computational methods of statistics. Its examples are taken from a broad range of disciplines and screen shots from the more popular software packages are included to display data and graphics. Mathematical derivations are minimized, so encouraging the student to use a calculator or computer to perform the computations. Various technology options give the student a range of methods for performing the statistical computations. The section on uses and misuses of statistics shows how statistics are presented by graphs and charts.
