David Moore's data analysis (conceptual) approach, which revolutionized the introductory statistics textbook, moves students away from formulas and number-crunching, focusing instead on how working statisticians in a variety of fields collect and analyze data, and use the results to tackle real-world problems. The clear, direct way of emphasizing the course's relevance and confronting students' math anxieties is at the heart of the bestselling The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS). It is also the ideal approach for taking full advantage of the powerful statistical tools and interactive learning features in this new edition's text/media package. Now more than ever, BPS is ready to help students move from reading about statistical practice to practicing statistics themselves. What's in the LaunchPad
This is an introduction to statistics for college and university students that emphasizes balanced content, working with real data, and statistical ideas.
This second, thoroughly revised, updated and enlarged edition provides a straightforward introduction to spectroscopy, showing what it can do and how it does it, together with a clear, integrated and objective account of the wealth of information that may be derived from spectra. It also features new chapters on spectroscopy in nano-dimensions, nano-optics, and polymer analysis.Clearly structured into sixteen sections, the Handbook of Spectroscopy, 2nd, Completely Revised and Enlarged Edition, 4 Volume Set covers everything from spectroscopy in nanodimensions to medicinal applications, spanning a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum and the physical processes involved, from nuclear phenomena to molecular rotation processes.In addition, data tables provide a comparison of different methods in a standardized form, allowing readers to save valuable time in the decision process by avoiding wrong turns, and also help in selecting the instrumentation and performing the experiments. These four volumes are a must-have companion for daily use in every lab.View sample pdf chapters:Front Matter http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.fmatter/pdfPreparation of Liquid and Solid Samples http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.ch1/pdfMethods: Optical Spectroscopy http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.part2/pdfMethods: NMR http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.part3/pdfMethods: Surface Analysis http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.part6/pdfApplications: Process Control http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.part11/pdfIndex http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9783527654703.index/pdfTake advantage of the introductory offer!Introductory price, valid until 31 July 2014: $675.00 / £410.00 / 499.00Thereafter: $740.00 / £450.00 / 549.00
This edition is an introductory text that focuses on data and on statistical reasoning. It is elementary in mathematical level, but conceptually rich in statistical ideas and serious in its aim to help students think about data and use statistical methods with understanding.
With its focus on data analysis, statistical reasoning, and the way statisticians actually work, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics (IPS) helped bring the power of critical thinking and practical applications to today's statistics classroom. Unlike more traditional "plug and chug" /formula driven texts, IPS de-emphasizes probability and gives students a deeper understanding of statistics.
Combining a data analysis approach with the power of technology, innovative pedagogy, and a number of new features, the fourth edition is an impressively effective text for learning statistics.
Tailored to mirror the AP Statistics course, The Practice of Statistics became a classroom favorite. This edition incorporates a number of first-time features to help students prepare for the AP exam, plus more simulations and statistical thinking help, and instructions for the TI-89 graphic calculator.
Statistics: Concepts and Controversies (SCC) is a book on statistics as a liberal discipline, that is, as part of the general education of "non-mathematical" students.
Watch avideo introduction here. Statistics Through Applications (STA)is the only text written specifically for high school statistics course. Designed to be read, the book takes a data analysis approach that emphasizes conceptual understanding over computation, while recognizing that some computation is necessary. The focus is on the statistical thinking behind data gathering and interpretation. The high school statistics course is often the first applied math course students take. STAengages students in learning how statisticians contribute to our understanding of the world and helps students to become more discerning consumers of the statistics they encounter in ads, economic reports, political campaigns, and elsewhere. New and improved!STA 2efeatures expanded coverage of probability, a reorganized presentation of data analysis, a new color design and much more.
