Statistics is all around us in our daily lives, and Triola is dedicated to finding new real-world examples and data sets that make sense for todayrs"s reader. TheEleventh Editioncontains more than 2000 exercises, 87% of which are new, and 82% of which use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples, 86% of which are new and 94% of which use real data. By analyzing real data, students are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large. As a result, they gain conceptual understanding and learn to think statistically, using the same methods that professional statisticians employ. Introduction to Statistics; Summarizing and Graphing Data; Statistics for Describing, Exploring, and Comparing Data; Probability; Discrete Probability Distributions; Normal Probability Distributions; Estimates and Sample Sizes; Hypothesis Testing; Inferences from Two Samples; Correlation and Regression; Goodness-of-Fit and Contingency Tables; Analysis of Variance; Nonparametric Statistics; Statistics Process Control; Projects, Procedures, Perspectives For all readers interested in introductory statistics.
