Intro Stats encourages statistical thinking using technology, innovative methods, and a sense of humor. The 5th edition's approach to teaching intro stats is revolutionary, yet it retains the book's lively tone and hallmark pedagogical features, such as Think/Show/Tell examples.
Inspired by the 2016 Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) College Report, this text employs innovative strategies to help students think cricitally about data—while maintaining the book's core concepts, coverage, and excellent readability. By using technology and simulations to demonstrate variability at critical points throughout the course, the authors make it easier for students to understand more complicated statistical concepts later in the course (such as the Central Limit Theorem). In addition, students get more exposure to large data sets and multivariate thinking, which better prepares them to be critical consumers of statistics in the 21st century.
