In a pleasing and conversational tone, the author uses this brief introductory text to invite the student to join her on a rewarding journey into the often-feared territory of statistics . Rather than emphasizing equations at the expense of understanding, Statistics Unplugged gives students a clear presentation of the material they need to gain a solid grasp of what is involved in the process of statistical reasoning. While avoiding unnecessary jargon, this book uses the process of repetition and cross-referencing chapters to underscore the important concepts. As a result, the student is led, step-by-step, along the path of statistical reasoning.
