9780136007203: Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World

For algebra-based Introductory Statistics courses.

 

Offering the most accessible approach to statistics, with a strong visual/graphical emphasis, this book 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.

About the Author:

Ron Larson received his PhD in mathematics from the University of Colorado in 1970. At that time he accepted a position with Penn State University, and he currently holds the rank of professor of mathematics at the University. Dr. Larson is the lead author of more than two dozen mathematics textbooks that range from sixth grade through calculus levels.

 

Betsy Farber received her Bachelor's degree in mathematics form Penn State University and Master's degree in mathematics from the College of New Jersey. Since 1976, she has been teaching all levels of mathematics at Bucks County Community College in Newton, Pennsylvania, where she currently holds the rank of professor.  She is particularly interested in developing new ways to make statistics relevant and interesting to her students and has been teaching statistics in many different modes - with TI-83/84, with MINITAB, and by distance learning as well as in the traditional classroom.
