By leading with practical data analysis and graphics, Stats: Modeling the World gets students “doing statistics” and “thinking statistically” from the start. Students understand what we find in data, why we find it interesting, and how we report it to others as a sound foundation for the challenges of inference. Instructors praise Stats: Modeling the World as clear and accessible to students, and students report that they enjoy reading the text while learning how to do Statistics with the Think, Show, and Tell rubric and What Can Go Wrong? sections.
Now even easier to read and use, every chapter of this Second Edition features new exercises graded by level of difficulty, Just Checking questions that check students’ understanding of key concepts, and What Have We Learned? sections that summarize the main topics covered in each chapter.
