about this item
For a one-semester alternative to the traditional two-semester developmental algebra sequence that prepares students specifically for an Introductory Statistics course.
Looking for a new path in algebra?
Using authentic data to make math meaningful to students, Jay Lehmann’s A Pathway to Introductory Statisticsprovides a one-semester alternate path through developmental algebra to accelerate and prepare non-STEM students for introductory statistics. For many students’ majors, the most fitting college-level math course is statistics. Tailoring their developmental sequence–in both content and approach–to prepare students for this course of study can only improve their success. Infused with highly relevant data sets throughout, Lehmann presents students with both an introduction to descriptive statistics and the requisite algebra topics needed for a statistics course, while demonstrating the close link between the two subjects. This text equips students to reason statistically as they discover the skills and concepts they’ll need for statistics.
