This edition of Larry Kitchens' EXPLORING STATISTICS is a quintessentially modern introduction to statistics. To an unprecedented degree, the book emphasizes data analysis throughout, continually illustrating key role data analysis plays in modern statistics. Kitchens also stresses hands-on experience, working with real data (more than 400 real data sets are included), and discovery through graphical displays and computer simulations. Preparing students to be both "consumers" and "producers" of statistics, Kitchens' approach gives them the tools and information they need to succeed in both roles.
