Intro Stats Summary

Intro Stats: International Edition by Richard D. de Veaux

Intro Stats, Third Edition extends the teaching innovations pioneered in the DeVeaux/Velleman/Bock books. Its focus on statistical thinking and modern practice are evident throughout. Each chapter opens with an example-and the data from that example are then displayed and analyzed to introduce new concepts. Graphics and summaries introduced in early chapters are used throughout the book, helping students become consistent statistical thinkers.

Intro Stats, Third Edition has a fun, conversational writing style, real up-to-date data, hundreds of examples based on current events, and short, accessible chapters. The innovative Think/Show/Tell examples, pioneered in the first edition, now present new data and discussions. The new For Example sections illustrate each new concept or method with a brief, worked example.

This text covers all material typical in a one-semester statistics course, with supplemental chapters on analysis of variance (ANOVA) and multiple regression included on the book's DVD-ROM. The text maintains its commitment to the recommendations of the ASA-endorsed GAISE (Guidelines for Assessment for Instruction in Statistical Education) Report.

Paul Velleman(Cornell University) is the only statistician to win the EDUCAUSE award for innovating technology for learning. The developer of ActivStats (R) multimedia software, Data Desk (R) statistics software, and the DASL online archive of teaching datasets, his understanding of using and teaching with technology informs much of the book's approach.

David Bock(Cornell University) won awards as a high school teacher of AP calculus and statistics and was a grader for the AP Statistics program from its inception. He is now the chief extension officer for the Cornell University mathematics department in charge of outreach to K-12 teachers. Dave's wisdom about how students learn helps to shape the book's pedagogy.
