Statistics - Learning from Data


This textbook offers an innovative approach to teaching and learning AP statistics by tackling the areas that students struggle with most- probability, hypothesis testing and selecting an appropriate method of analysis.
Supported by learning objectives, real-data examples and exercises, students will gain conceptual understanding, mechanical proficiency and the ability to put knowledge into practice.

Key Features:
- Chapter Learning Objectives explicitly state the expected student outcomes and are presented in three categories: Conceptual Understanding, Mastery of Mechanics and Putting It into Practice
- Exercises and examples have been selected from journal articles, newspapers, and other published sources and cover a wide range of disciplines and subject areas that interest students
- Are You Ready to Move On? questions allow students to confirm that they have achieved the chapter learning objectives and serve as a comprehensive end-of-chapter review
- The treatment of probability in this text is complete, including conditional probability and Bayes Rule type probability calculations. However, its done in a way that eliminates the need for the symbolism and formulas, which are a roadblock for many students
