For an undergraduate-level first course in Applied Statistics that emphasizes statistical inference.Unique in approach, this practical introduction to statistical inference 1) uses only college algebra, 2) gets into inference within the first 10 pages using popular examples that students encounter every day in newspapers and on television, and 3) emphasizes and covers statistical inference for population proportions in much greater depth than other texts at this level. It features an abundance of examples, problems, and clear computational procedures, and provides a brief introduction to Minitab -- with sample data, (on disk) commands, macros (on disk), and printed output.

The Graybill/Iyer/Burdick author team have written a conceptual introduction to statistics that immediately introduces readers to statistical inference. This algebra based book is not intended to be a compendium of every procedure in statistics, rather the focus is on a few basic ideas that form the foundation of statistical inference. Inference concepts are first introduced using a population proportion, a simple concept that appears frequently in familiar applications, and are then extended to other parameters. Thinking statistically: self test problems with worked out solutions, Exploration Activities, and the integration of Minitab commands and output are special features of the book.
