For courses in Probability and Statistics. This applied text for engineers and scientists, written in a non-theoretical manner, focuses on underlying principles that are important to students in a wide range of disciplines. It emphasizes the interpretation of results, the presentation and evaluation of assumptions, and the discussion of what should be done if the assumptions are violated. Integration of spreadsheet and statistical software (Microsoft Excel and Minitab) as well as in-depth coverage of quality and experimental design complete this treatment of statistics.
