We live in a data-driven world, and the goal of this text is to teach students how to access and analyze these data critically. Authors Rob Gould and Colleen Ryan emphasize that learning statistics extends beyond the classroom to an essential life skill, and want students to develop a “data habit of mind.” Regardless of their math backgrounds, students will learn how to think about data and how to reason using data. With a clear, unintimidating writing style and carefully chosen pedagogy, this text makes data analysis accessible to all students.
