Summary

Intro Stats, Third Edition, continues and extends the successful innovations pioneered in the DeVeaux/Velleman/Bock books, teaching statistics and statistical thinking for today's readers. This book uses a fun, conversational writing style, real data, and short, accessible chapters. The consistent Think/Show/Tell model for worked examples reinforces thinking about how to approach a statistics problem, showing how to solve it, and reporting the conclusion in the context of the problem.

Paul Velleman (Cornell University) is the only statistician to win the EDUCAUSE award for innovating technology for learning. The developer of ActivStats® multimedia software, Data Desk® statistics software, and the DASL online archive of teaching datasets, his understanding of using and teaching with technology informs much of the book’s approach.

 

David Bock (Cornell University) won awards as a high school teacher of AP calculus and statistics and was a grader for the AP Statistics program from its inception. He is now the chief extension officer for the Cornell University mathematics department in charge of outreach to K-12 teachers. Dave’s wisdom about how students learn helps to shape the book’s pedagogy.
