The Practice of Statistics (TPS) is written specifically to address the College Board AP® Statistics Course Description. Now the overwhelming bestseller for the course returns in a spectacular new edition. For this edition, Josh Tabor joins the author team of veteran AP® teachers who fully understand how to engage and teach high school students. With new problem-solving and test preparation features and a dramatically enhanced suite of media tools, the fifth edition provides everything teachers and students need to succeed in the course and on the AP® Statistics exam.
When The College Board created the Advanced Placement (AP) statistics course several years ago, they recommended several college books that closely match their syllabus. The top two books on this "short list" were Moore and McCabe's Introduction to the Practice of Statistics and Moore's The Basic Practice of Statistics. Still, these book lacked several key elements such as activities and special topics. So, starting with the classic features of IPS and BPS, veteran AP statistics instructor Dan Yates has fashioned a text that perfectly matches the College Board’s recommended syllabus. The result is the #1 book in the AP statistics market: The Practice of Statistics, TI-83 Graphing Calculator Enhanced. Because this book was written for bright high school students who are at an advanced reading level, it has also sold to many colleges and universities. These institutions love the idea of a David Moore book integrating the TI-83 Graphing Calculator, which is the most popular statistics calculator in the market. For colleges and universities who require or recommend that their students use the TI-83 Graphing Calculator, TPS is the appropriate text.
Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is the classic textbook for teaching statistics. This textbook shows students how to produce and interpret data from real-world contexts, guiding them through the type of data gathering and analysis that working statisticians do every day. With this phenomenally successful approach developed by David Moore and George McCabe, statistics is more than just a collection of techniques and formulas. Instead, students develop a way of thinking about data with a focus on problem-solving that helps them understand concepts and master statistical reasoning. Part of the best-selling Moore family of statistics books, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is designed for a two-semester ‘introduction to statistics’ course and offers a rigorous introduction to the subject. This textbook is available on LaunchPad, which combines an interactive ebook with multimedia content and assessment tools, including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing. See ‘Instructor Resources’ and ‘Student Resources’ for further information.
This is an introduction to the uses and applications of statistics in the life sciences with a data analysis approach.
The Basic Practice of Statistics has become a bestselling textbook by focusing on how statistics are gathered, analyzed, and applied to real problems and situations—and by confronting student anxieties about the course's relevance and difficulties head on. With David Moore's pioneering "data analysis" approach (emphasizing statistical thinking over computation), engaging narrative and case studies, current problems and exercises, and an accessible level of mathematics, there is no more effective textbook for showing students what working statisticians do and what accurate interpretations of data can reveal about the world we live in. In the new edition, you will once again see how everything fits together. As always, Moore's text offers balanced content, beginning with data analysis, then covering probability and inference in the context of statistics as a whole. It provides a wealth of opportunities for students to work with data from a wide range of disciplines and real-world settings, emphasizing the big ideas of statistics in the context of learning specific skills used by professional statisticians. Thoroughly updated throughout, the new edition offers new content, features, cases, data sources, and exercises, plus new media support for instructors and students—including the latest version of the widely-adopted StatsPortal. The full picture of the contemporary practice of statistics has never been so captivatingly presented to an uninitiated audience.
