• Statistical Methods: A Worktext Approach uses a student-friendly, conversational tone to explain core statistical concepts in a way that students can readily understand.
• After concepts and skills are introduced and demonstrated, students are given a hands-on opportunity to work with the concepts and practice their newly acquired skills with Your Turn exercises.
• Each chapter begins with a careful explanation of the statistical concepts relevant to that chapter. Following the explanation of concepts are examples that illustrate their applications.
• Boxes containing helpful pointers for students are included in the chapters. These are often mnemonics for remembering concepts and precautions warning against common mistakes.
• Statistical terms are in boldfaced type and italicized. They are defined in the text and also appear in the glossary in Appendix A.
• An extensive instructor’s guide provides answers to the exercises.
