Summary

INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS AND DATA ANALYSIS, 4th Edition, 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. Simple notation--including the frequent substitution of words for symbols--helps you grasp concepts and cement your comprehension. You'll 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.
