9780321825278: Intro Stats

Richard De Veaux, Paul Velleman, and David Bock wrote Intro Stats with the goal that you have as much fun reading it as they did in writing it. Maintaining a conversational, humorous, and informal writing style, this new edition engages readers from the first page. The authors focus on statistical thinking throughout the text and rely on technology for calculations. As a result, students can focus on developing their conceptual understanding. Innovative Think/Show/Tell examples provide a problem-solving framework and, more importantly, a way to think through any statistics problem and present their results.

 

New to the Fourth Edition is a streamlined presentation that keeps students focused on what’s most important, while including out helpful features. An updated organization divides chapters into sections, with specific learning objectives to keep students on track. A detailed table of contents assists with navigation through this new layout. Single-concept exercises complement the existing mid- to hard-level exercises for basic skill development.

Paul Velleman (Cornell University) is the only statistician to win the EDUCAUSE award for innovating technology for learning. The developer of ActivStats® multimedia software, Data Desk® statistics software, and the DASL online archive of teaching datasets, his understanding of using and teaching with technology informs much of the book’s approach.

 

David Bock (Cornell University) won awards as a high school teacher of AP calculus and statistics and was a grader for the AP Statistics program from its inception. He is now the chief extension officer for the Cornell University mathematics department in charge of outreach to K-12 teachers. Dave’s wisdom about how students learn helps to shape the book’s pedagogy.
