9780256234312: Elementary Statistics: A Step by Step Approach

This text is aimed at students who do not have a mathematical background. It therefore uses a non-theoretical approach, and concepts are explained intuitively, without the use of formal proofs; they are instead supported by example. The statistical applications are drawn from various disciplines, including natural, social and computer science and business. There are margin articles with interesting trivia related to statistics.
