Elementary Statistics: A Step By Step Approach is for introductory statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. The text follows a nontheoretical approach, explaining concepts intuitively and supporting them with abundant examples. In recent editions, Al Bluman has placed more emphasis on conceptual understanding and understanding results, which is also reflected in the online homework environment, Connect Math Hosted by ALEKS. Additionally step-by step instructions on how to utilize the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator, Excel, and Minitab, have also been updated to reflect the most recent editions of each technology.
Using a successfully class-tested approach that gives coherence to a broad range of introductory topics, this innovative text provides students with a real-world, big picture view of statistics as well as problem-solving strategies that can be applied to the statistical questions, real data, and examples that they will encounter. Author Nancy Pfenning organizes content around four basic processes of statistics: producing data, displaying and summarizing data, understanding probability, and using probability to perform statistical inference. Within this framework, the book progresses systematically through five basic problem situations involving values of variables (quantitative, categorical, or a blend). As a result, students learn to identify which situation applies and how to choose the correct display, summary, or inference tool or technique. As students gain proficiency in specific statistical techniques, the author also points out connections among topics and techniques. More than 1,000 real-life examples and categorized exercises support the approach, engaging students in practicing and developing a variety of skills.

Elementary Statistics: A Workbook serves as a guide to elementary statistics. This book presents the various mathematical symbols used in the calculation of mean and variance. Comprised of seven chapters, this book starts with an overview of the definition of several terms, including mean, variance, deviation score, sigma, and deviation score squared. This text then explores the method of calculation of the product-moment correlation coefficient r. Other chapters describe the analysis of variance, which provides us with one of the most effective ways of testing hypotheses. This book discusses as well the common assumption analysis of variance, which makes three assumptions that are not made by some other statistical methods. The final chapter deals with the importance of correlation coefficients and explains the analysis of the correlation matrix, which is only a shortcut to the analysis of the standardized score matrix. This book is a valuable resource for students, teachers, statisticians, and mathematicians.
