From SAT scores to job search methods, statistics influences and shapes the world around us. Marty Triola's text continues to be the bestseller because it helps students understand the relationship between statistics and the world, bringing life to the theory and methods.
Essentials of Statistics (a briefer version of Elementary Statistics-see below for the full series) raises the bar with every edition by incorporating an unprecedented amount of real and interesting data that will help instructors connect with students today, and help them connect statistics to their daily lives. The Fifth Edition contains more than 1,585 exercises, 89% of which use real data and 86% of which are new. Hundreds of examples are included, 92% of which use real data and 85% of which are new.
This program provides a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. Here's how:
Personalized learning with MyStatLab (TM): the accompanying MyStatLab online course provides users with countless opportunities to practice, plus statistics specific resources and tools that enhance their experience and comprehension.
Real data is prevalent throughout the text, showing that statistics is a study grounded in real life.
Thoughtful features-such as the flexible organization, Flowcharts for complex procedures, and From Data to Decision capstone problems-make this text a useful learning companion for the course. See the "Features" section for more details.
Essential technology resources are included to help students focus on the concepts, not just learning keystrokes.
Essentials of Statistics is part of a series that also includes Elementary Statistics Twelfth Edition, Elementary Statistics Using the TI-83/84 Plus Graphing Calculator Fourth Edition, and Elementary Statistics Using Excel Fifth Edition. Data sets and other resources for this series are available at our website.
