9780131505087: Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences: A Brief course (3rd Edition)

This unique book capitalizes on a successful approach of using definitional formulas to emphasize concepts of statistics, rather than rote memorization. This conceptual approach constantly reminds readers of the logic behind what they are learning. Procedures are taught verbally, numerically, and visually, which appeals to a variety of users with different learning styles. Focusing on understanding, the book emphasizes the intuitive, de-emphasizes the mathematical, and explains everything in clear, simple language—with a large number of practice problems. For those trying to master statistics, as well as reading and understanding research articles.

From the Publisher:

Because today statistics are done by computer, not by hand, and the majority of social science majors are human- and word-oriented, not math and number oriented, this text offers a different approach to teaching statistics. Focusing on understanding, it emphasizes the intuitive, de-emphasizes the mathematical, explains everything in clear, simple language, and requires students to put what they know into words rather than to recite formulas.

From the Back Cover:

Focusing on understanding, it emphasizes the intuitive, de-emphasizes the mathematical, explains everything in clear, simple language, and requires reader to put what they know into words rather than to recite formulas. Emphasizes statistical methods as used in research in a wide range of social science fields e.g., education, sociology, communication, political science, anthropology, psychology, business.
