For algebra-based Introductory Statistics courses. Offering the most accessible approach to statistics, with a strong visual/graphical emphasis, this text offers a vast number of examples on the premise that students learn best by "doing". The fourth edition features many updates and revisions that place increased emphasis on interpretation of results and critical thinking in addition to calculations. This emphasis on "statistical literacy" is reflective of the GAISE recommendations. Datasets and other resources (where applicable) for this book are available here.
