Summary

Weiss's Introductory Statistics, Ninth Editionis the ideal textbook for introductory statistics classes that emphasize statistical reasoning and critical thinking. The text is suitable for a one- or two-semester course. Comprehensive in its coverage, Weiss's meticulous style offers careful, detailed explanations to ease the learning process. With more than 1,000 data sets and more than 2,600 exercises, most using real data, this text takes a data-driven approach that encourages students to apply their knowledge and develop statistical literacy. Introductory Statistics, Ninth Edition, contains parallel presentation of critical-value and p-value approaches to hypothesis testing. This unique design allows both the flexibility to concentrate on one approach or the opportunity for greater depth in comparing the two. This edition continues the book's tradition of being on the cutting edge of statistical pedagogy, technology, and data analysis. It includes hundreds of new and updated exercises with real data from journals, magazines, newspapers, and websites. Datasets and other resources (where applicable) for this book are availablehere.

Author Biography

Neil A. Weiss received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 1970 and subsequently accepted an assistant-professor position at Arizona State University (ASU), where he was ultimately promoted to the rank of full professor. Dr. Weiss has taught statistics, probability, and mathematics—from the freshman level to the advanced graduate level—for more than 30 years. In recognition of his excellence in teaching, he received the Dean’s Quality Teaching Award from the ASU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Dr. Weiss’ comprehensive knowledge and experience ensures that his texts are mathematically and statistically accurate, as well as pedagogically sound.

 

In addition to his numerous research publications, Dr. Weiss is the author of A Course in Probability (Addison-Wesley, 2006). He has also authored or coauthored books in finite mathematics, statistics, and real analysis, and is currently working on a new book on applied regression analysis and the analysis of variance. His texts—well known for their precision, readability, and pedagogical excellence—are used worldwide.

 

Dr. Weiss is a pioneer of the integration of statistical software into textbooks and the classroom, first providing such integration over 20 years ago in the book Introductory Statistics (Addison-Wesley, 1982). Weiss and Addison-Wesley continue that pioneering spirit to this day with the inclusion of some of the most comprehensive Web sites in the field.

 

In his spare time, Dr. Weiss enjoys walking, studying and practicing meditation, and playing hold ’em poker. He is married and has two sons.
