STATISTICS: LEARNING FROM DATA, Second Edition, addresses common problems faced by learners of elementary statistics with an innovative approach. The authors have paid particular attention to areas learners often struggle with – probability, hypothesis testing, and selecting an appropriate method of analysis. Probability coverage is based on current research on how students best learn the subject. A unique chapter that provides an informal introduction to the ideas of statistical inference helps students to develop a framework for choosing an appropriate method.
Supported by learning objectives, real-data examples and exercises, and technology notes, this book helps learners to develop conceptual understanding, mechanical proficiency, and the ability to put knowledge into practice.
