## Summary

Here, in the fourth edition of Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, the authors have refined their&text by building off an already well-established&approach - emphasizing the intuitive, deemphasizing the mathematical, and explaining everything in direct, simple language - but also going beyond these principles to both further student understanding and stimulate the long-suffering community of statistics instructors. By using&definitional formulas to emphasize the concepts of&statistics, rather than rote memorization, students work problems in a way that keeps them constantly aware of the underlying logic of&what they are doing.&
