Richard De Veaux, Paul Velleman, and David Bock wrote Intro Stats with the goal that you’ve got 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 focal point on statistical thinking right through the text and depend on technology for calculations. Because of this, students can focal point 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 helps to keep students focused on what’s most necessary, even as including out helpful features. An up to date organization divides chapters into sections, with specific learning objectives to keep students on course. 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.
