Book Description

Roxy Peck & Tom Short’s Statistics: Learning From Data 2nd Edition (PDF); 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.
