Description: Here, in the fourth edition ofStatistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, the authors have refined theirnbsp;text by building off an already well-establishednbsp;approach - emphasizing the intuitive, deemphasizing the mathematical, and explaining everything in direct, simple language - but also going beyond these principles to both further student understanding and stimulate the long-suffering community of statistics instructors. By usingnbsp;definitional formulas to emphasize the concepts ofnbsp;statistics, rather than rote memorization, students work problems in a way that keeps them constantly aware of the underlying logic ofnbsp;what they are doing.nbsp;
