A qualitative approach teaches students how to reason using statistics
Understanding the core ideas behind statistics is crucial to everyday success in the modern world. Statistical Reasoning for Everyday Life is designed to teach these core ideas through real-life examples so that students are able to understand the statistics needed in their college courses, reason with statistical information in their careers, and to evaluate and make everyday decisions using statistics. The authors approach each concept qualitatively, using computation techniques only to enhance understanding and build on ideas step-by-step, working up to real examples and complex case studies. The Fifth Edition has been revised to update many exercises, examples, and case studies to engage today’s students with the latest data and relevant topics.
