Description

Workshop Statistics emphasizes doing statistics as a way of learning statistics concepts and techniques. Workshop Statistics assumes the use of technology, specifically the TI-83 graphing calculator. The "workshop approach" builds upon analysis of genuine data and provides practical experience. Unique in its format, an extensive series of practical activities and exercises leads students to discover statistical concepts, explore statistical principles, and apply statistical techniques. As before, resources (data sets, answer guide, sample exams, and syllabi) are available via the Key College Publishing website. Visit: www keycollege.com/Pages/ProdRossmanWkshpStat.html. Widely praised as the most innovative introduction for learning statistics in over a decade. Examples and exercises have been modified for use with the graphing calculator. Short computer program code is included in the appendices, for use in programming calculators. Access to either a PC or Macintosh, and the TI-Graph Link software and cables is important. Over 90 activities are included in book.
