Description:

Though combining statistics and research methods into one course may initially seem overwhelming, Jackson's text successfully illustrates the integration between statistics and research methods by demonstrating the ways to use statistics in analyzing data collected during research. Jackson's combined Statistics and Research Methods text adopts an inviting narrative style that speaks directly to students and draws them into the material. She incorporates a student-friendly critical thinking approach and presents examples and exercises to which students can relate. From page one of the text, Jackson clearly focuses on the logic of the process and the methodology aspect of research.
