about this item

In an introductory statistics textbook, Bowen sets out basic terms, theories, formulas, and purposes of statistical procedures, and shows that complicated statistical concepts are simply modifications, extensions, and combinations of the basics. Her topics include summarizing and organizing data, descriptive statistics, standard Z scores, basic principles of probability, the central limit theorem, hypothesis testing, dependent-samples and independent-samples t tests, correlation, simple regression, the one-way analysis of variance, and chi-square tests for goodness of fit and independence.

Written in an accessible and clear manner by Chieh-Chen Bowen, Straightforward Statistics is designed to walk the reader through the material at a steady pace while providing 3 - 5 pop quizzes in every chapter so the reader can check their knowledge about what they have read. The goal is to gradually step up in each chapter so the reader benefits and is prepared for the next chapters in moving through the book. The overall structure of the book is designed to have the reader look at the "big picture" so that the basic statistical concepts connect in a coherent and logical manner. Key terms are defined as they appear and the reader is engaged with diverse examples throughout. Throughout the book the reader is reminded what they need to be able to recall with "You Must Remember This" boxes. A rich source of practical resources are located at the end of chapters beginning with " What You learned" so that you have a summary of what you covered in a given chapter. This is followed by Exercise Problems and Solutions to those problems as well as a "Learning Assessment" that includes multiple choice questions and "Free Response" questions with all the answers included in the back of the book. A very complete and practical introduction to statistics with a goal of success for the student
