Written specifically for a one-term course in introductory statistics, this brief version of the authors' text, Introduction to Probability and Statistics, 10th Edition, will help students understand statistical concepts without getting lost in technical jargon. Examples from newspaper and magazine articles demonstrate how statistical techniques are applied, and exercises provide real-world situations and data sets. Use of versions 12 and 13 of Minitab and the TI-83 graphing calculator is required. Students are assumed to have previous courses in high school algebra. An accompanying CD-ROM contains videos, concept simulations, and data sets.
