This book introduces you to the study of statistics and data analysis by using real data and attention-grabbing examples. The authors guide you through an intuition-based learning process that stresses interpretation and communication of statistical information. They help you grasp concepts and cement your comprehension by using simple notation-frequently substituting words for symbols. You will also find coverage of the graphing calculator as a problem-solving tool, plus hands-on activities in each chapter that allow you to practice statistics firsthand.
