An R Companion for Applied Statistics I: Basic Bivariate Techniques

by Danney Rasco

An R Companion for Applied Statistics I: Basic Bivariate Techniques breaks the language of the R software down into manageable chunks in order to help students learn how to use it. R is a powerful, flexible, and free tool. However, the flexibility—which eventually becomes a great asset—can make the initial learning curve appear steep. This book introduces a few key aspects of the R tool. As readers become comfortable with these aspects, they develop a foundation from which to more thoroughly explore R and the packages available for it. This introduction does not explain every possible way to analyze data or perform a specific type of analysis. Rather, it focuses on the analyses that are traditionally included in an undergraduate statistics course and provides one or two ways to run these analyses in R. Datasets and scripts to run the examples are provided on an accompanying website. The book has been designed to be an R companion to Warner's Applied Statistics I, Third Edition, and includes end-of-chapter instructions for replicating the examples from that book in R. However, this text can also be used as a stand-alone R guide, without reference to the Warner text.

Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life

by Dr. David M. Newman

In Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, David Newman shows students how to see the &“unfamiliar in the familiar&”—to step back and see organization and predictability in their personal experiences. With his approachable writing style and lively personal anecdotes, the author&’s goal from the first edition has been the same: to write a textbook that &“reads like a real book.&” Many adopters of this book are fans of Peter Berger's classic works, which helped introduce the idea of "social constructionism" to sociology. Newman uses the metaphors of &“architecture&” and &“construction,&” to help students understand that society is not something that exists &“out there,&” independently of themselves; it is a human creation that is planned, maintained, or altered by individuals. Using vivid prose, current examples, and fresh data, the Thirteenth Edition presents a unique and thought-provoking overview of how society is constructed and experienced. Instead of surveying every subfield in sociology, the more streamlined coverage (14 chapters) focuses on the individual and society, the construction of self and society, and social inequality in the context of social structures.

Statistics: A Gentle Introduction

by Dr. Frederick L. Coolidge

The Fourth Edition of Statistics: A Gentle Introduction shows students that an introductory statistics class doesn&’t need to be difficult or dull.
