Description : 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.

Description : W.H. Freeman is excited to be publishing a new text by David Moore: Essential Statistics. David Moore’s considerable experience as a statistician and instructor, and his commitment to producing high-quality, innovative introductory statistics textbooks motivated him to create Essential Statistics. The text offers the same highly successful approach and pedagogy of David Moore’s bestselling The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS), Fifth Edition, but in a briefer, more concise format. Through careful rewriting, he has shortened and simplified explanations, to better highlight the key, essential, statistical ideas and methods students need to know. The text is based on three principles: balanced content, the importance of ideas, and experience with data. Using a “just the basics” approach, the text clarifies and simplifies important concepts and methods, while engaging students with contemporary, realistic examples. Throughout the book, exercises help students check and apply their skills. A four-step problem-solving process in examples and exercises encourage good habits that go beyond graphs and calculations to ask, “What do the data tell me?” Essential Statistics is what its name suggests: a basic introduction to statistical ideas and methods that aims to equip students to carry out common statistical procedures and to follow statistical reasoning in their fields of study and in their future employment.

Description : Written by an author team of accomplished leaders in statistics education, The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS) reflects the actual practice of statistics, where data analysis and design of data production join with probability-based inference to form a coherent science of data. The authors' ultimate goal is to equip students to carry out common statistical procedures and to follow statistical reasoning in their fields of study and in their future employment. The text's long-standing renown is built on an inspired framework of balanced content, experience with data, and the importance of ideas. These themes are widely accepted by statisticians concerned about teaching and are directly connected to and reflected by the themes of the College Report of the Guidelines in Assessment and Instruction for Statistics Education (GAISE) Project. The eighth edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics is supported in SaplingPLUS for a user experience of its own. SaplingPLUS combines Macmillan's StatsTools, powerful multimedia resources, and text-specific exercises with the powerful targeted feedback of Sapling Learning, where every problem is a teaching and learning opportunity.
