9780136152590: A First Course in Statistics

The Tenth Edition of this highly-regarded introductory text emphasizes inference and sound decision-making through its extensive coverage of data collection and analysis. McClave develops statistical thinking and teaches students to properly assess the credibility of inferences–from the vantage point of both the consumer and the producer. This edition incorporates more exercises and more visual features, such as redesigned end-of-chapter summaries and an increased use of applets. This text assumes a mathematical background of basic algebra.

A First Course in Statistics is now accompanied by a suite of new technology resources designed to enhance the instruction and comprehension of introductory statistics course material.

New supplements include:
  • Technology Companion Manuals. Available free when packaged to the text, each spiral-bound manual is tied specifically to the Statistics, 9e text, but can also be used with A First Course in Statistics, 8e. Step-by-step keystroke level instructions and screen captures for the TI-83, MINITAB, and Excel provide detailed instructions showing students how to work pertinent exercises.
  • Course Management Options. Instructors wishing to enhance their course with an interactive on-line component may choose from text-specific WebCT, Blackboard, or CourseCompass sites. Each site features course-compatible content, the student solutions manual, assessment options, lecture content, and new Web-based statistical applets (STATLETS™ by StatPoint, LLC) that are designed specifically for McClave/Sincich Statistics, 9e, and can also be used with A First Course in Statistics, 8e.
