In An Introduction to Statistics Kieth Carlson and Jennifer Winquistáencourage an active approach to learning statistics.áWhile the chapters in this book introduceábasic and key concepts,áthis book is unique in the depth of its active pedagogical approach. Carefully placed reading questions throughout each chapter reinforce difficult concepts and guide student learning;á29 in-depth activities, each accompanied by learning objectives, carefully developed scenarios, problem sets, and quiz questions give students the opportunity to test or demonstrate their understanding of basic concepts while they read detailed explanations of more complex statistical concepts;áand 15 sets of practice problems further solidify student learning.When using most traditional text books, students only perform statistical procedures after they read multiple pages of text. This book adopts a workbook approach that forces students to be actively engaged while they read explanations. Most of the activities are self-correcting so if students misunderstand a concept their misunderstanding is corrected early in the learning process. After completing these activities, students are far more likely to understand the material than when they simply read the material.Carlson and Winquist's approach targets studentsÆ attention toward important statistical issues. Further, this volume is based on contemporary research on memory and the ôtesting effectö which requires students to answer questions to facilitate their long term retention. The embedded questions throughout the chapters and activities are designed specifically to take advantage of this testing effect. Features:Self-Test Reviews that are designed to create a beneficial ôtesting effectö when students take examsEncourages purposeful reading and learning by providing students with very specific reading goals. Chapters contain embedded reading questions that help students extract key concepts from the text.Contains additional problems for every activity so instructors can provide students with more practice to enhance learning and retention
