Go INTERACTIVE with Sullivan/Woodbury’s Interactive Statistics

Interactive Statistics: Informed Decisions Using Data presents content in a way that gets students actively doing statistics as they learn new concepts. Written entirely in MyLab™ Statistics, Interactive Statistics engages students by combining text, multimedia, and assessment into one seamless learning experience: Interactive Assignments. Through a series of Interactive Assignments, students are encouraged to experience statistics in new and dynamic ways. 

 

Authors Mike Sullivan and George Woodbury are both active in the classroom, and they incorporate ideas and strategies from their experience teaching today’s students. Their practical approach paired with the interactive, guided learning environment helps improve students’ conceptual understanding, knowledge retention, and ability to see how statistics is connected to the world at large.


Personalize learning with MyLab Statistics

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Author Biography

Mike Sullivan, III has training in mathematics, statistics, and economics, and brings a varied teaching background that includes 15 years of instruction in both high school and college-level. He is currently a full-time professor of mathematics and statistics at Joliet Junior College. Mike has numerous textbooks in publication, in addition to his Introductory Statistics Series, which include series in both Developmental Mathematics and Precalculus (written with his father, Michael Sullivan). Mike has built this new statistics book in the classroom using feedback from his students. He is well aware of the challenges faced by students taking an introductory statistics course. Mike’s goal is for students to be more informed interpreters of data so that they will be better decision makers and have stronger critical-thinking skills. When not in the classroom or writing, Michael enjoys spending time with his three children, Michael, Kevin, and Marissa, and playing golf.

 

George Woodbury earned a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of California–Santa Barbara and a master’s degree in Mathematics from California State University–Northridge. He currently teaches at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA, just outside of Fresno. George has been honored as an instructor by both his students and his colleagues. Aside from teaching and writing, George served as the department chair of the math/engineering division from 1999 through 2004. He has been a user of MyLab Math and Statistics since inception, continually coming up with creative ways to integrate his teaching methods with technology. He actively blogs on georgewoodbury.com about thoughts on math, statistics, teaching, and study skills.
