David Moore’s data analysis (conceptual) approach, which revolutionized the introductory statistics textbook, moves students away from formulas and number-crunching, focusing instead on how working statisticians in a variety of fields collect and analyze data, and use the results to tackle real-world problems.

The clear, direct way of emphasizing the course’s relevance and confronting students’ math anxieties is at the heart of the bestselling The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS). It is also the ideal approach for taking full advantage of the powerful statistical tools and interactive learning features in this new edition’s text/media package. Now more than ever, BPS is ready to help students move from reading about statistical practice to practicing statistics themselves.
