Rebecca M. Warner: Applied Statistics: From Bivariate Through Multivariate Techniques, Second Edition Applied Statistics: From Bivariate Through Multivariate Techniques, Second Edition, provides a clear introduction to widely used topics in bivariate and multivariate statistics, including multiple regression, discriminant analysis, Manova, factor analysis, and binary logistic regression. Author Rebecca M. Warner uses an applied approach that does not require formal mathematics; equations are accompanied by verbal explanations, and students are asked to think about the meaning of the equations. Each chapter presents a complete empirical research example to illustrate the application of a specific method, along with a glossary and comprehension questions to help students master each concept. SPSS examples are used throughout the book; however, the conceptual material will be helpful for users of different programs. John K. White: Do The Math!: On Growth, Greed, and Strategic Thinking How do pyramid scams work? Are reality television shows fair? Why are sports so uncompetitive? Who really broke the bank in 2009? Our world has become more complicated, and the notion of growth at any cost has led to constant economic uncertainty, a permanently stressed-out workforce, and everyday stories of government and corporate abuse. Author John K. White argues that a better knowledge of basic systems is needed to understand the world we live in, from pyramid scams to government bailouts, from sports leagues to stock markets, from the everyday to the seemingly complex. Do the Math! is a fresh look at the numbers of daily living, providing a thought-provoking guide to better understanding the world around us and enlightening consumers about misleading practice. Numerous creative examples and illustrative figures help to explain the realities of our ever-confusing mathematical world, and modern economic and contemporary social issues link mathematical concepts to real-world examples.
