Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World, Fifth Edition, offers our most accessible approach to statistics—with more than 750 graphical displays that illustrate data, readers are able to visualize key statistical concepts immediately. Adhering to the philosophy that students learn best by doing, this book relies heavily on examples–25% of the examples and exercises are new for this edition. Larson and Farber continue to demonstrate that statistics is all around us and that it’s easy to understand.

Ron Larson received his PhD. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and has been a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University since 1970. He has pioneered the use of multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson has also conducted numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math teachers around the country about using computer technology as a teaching tool and motivational aid. His Interactive Calculus (a complete text on CD-ROM) received the 1996 Texty Award for the most innovative mathematics instructional material at the college level, and it was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet.
