W. H. Freeman; 8th edition
Written by an author team consisting of qualified industry specialists in education statistics; The current practice of statistics, in which data analysis and the design of data generation blend with probability-based inference to build a cohesive science of data, is reflected in the eighth edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics (PDF), which was published in 2017. The authors’ overarching objective is to impart upon students the skills necessary to carry out standard statistical procedures and to use statistical reasoning in the context of their respective fields of study as well as their future careers.
The popularity of the textbook has persisted for such a long time because it provides an engaging structure that emphasizes balanced material, familiarity with data, and the significance of concepts. These ideas are broadly supported among statisticians who are concerned with education, and they are strongly connected to the topics of the College Report of the Guidelines in Assessment and Instruction for Statistics Education (GAISE) Project, which also reflect those ideas.
SaplingPLUS was updated to incorporate the Eighth Edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics, which provides users with an experience that is uniquely theirs. SaplingPLUS combines Macmillan’s StatsTools, excellent multimedia materials, and text-specific exercises with the efficient targeted feedback of Sapling Learning. In Sapling Learning, each problem is an opportunity for teaching and learning. SaplingPLUS integrates all of these elements.
