An Introduction to Statistics is the ideal text for incorporating an active learning approach to the subject of introductory statistics. Authors Kieth A. Carlson and Jennifer R. Winquist carefully explain fundamental statistical concepts in short, easy-to-understand chapters, then use empirically developed workbook activities to both reinforce and expand on these fundamental concepts. These activities are self-correcting so students discover and correct their own misunderstandings early in the learning process. This approach enables students to be responsible for their own learning by helping them to read with purpose. Based on contemporary memory research (e.g., the testing effect, embedded reading questions), the text is designed to actively engage students while they generate explanations, which leads to better long term retention. It also contains more traditional student aids including carefully developed learning objectives, realistic research scenarios, practice problems, and self-test questions.
