Summary

UNDERSTANDABLE STATISTICS is a thorough, yet accessible program designed to help students overcome their apprehensions about statistics. The authors provide guidance and informal advice, while showing students the links between statistics and the world. To reinforce this approach, the book integrates real-life data from a variety of sources including journals, periodicals, newspapers, and the Internet. The Ninth Edition addresses the growing importance of developing students' critical thinking and statistical literacy skills through the introduction of new features and exercises throughout the text. Extensive technology resources include a new algorithmic test bank and lecture slides, along with a market-leading DVD series and other resources designed to provide reinforcement for students and support for instructors. The use of graphing calculators, Excel, Minitab, and SPSS is covered though not required.
