Description

Clear, accessible, and teachable, Stats: Modeling the World leads with practical data analysis and graphics to engage students and get them thinking statistically from the start. Through updated, relevant examples and data—and the authors’ signature Think, Show, and Tell problem-solving method—students learn what we can find in data, why we find it interesting, and how to report it to others. The new Fourth Edition is even more engaging than previous editions, builds on the innovative features that have made the first three editions so popular, and includes revisions designed to make it even easier for students to put the concepts of statistics together in a coherent whole.
