As a statistics and research methods teacher, Professor Sally Caldwell knows what it takes for students to understand and connect with the subject matter. As an author, she knows how to translate her teaching insights into explanations that get through to students. STATISTICS UNPLUGGED, Fourth Edition, retains the goal that has guided it since the First Edition: to help students overcome their apprehension of statistics. Caldwell does this by emphasizing the logic behind statistical analysis, and by helping students gain an intuitive understanding of statistics rather than focusing solely on formulas and equations. Student feedback about the book repeatedly points out its student-friendly language and how the writing style makes the material understandable. Brief and affordable, STATISTICS UNPLUGGED succinctly alleviates students' fears about formulas, and helps them to understand the relevance of statistics to their lives. And, for the first time, the book is available with CourseMate, which offers an easy way to complement the text with study and practice materials, including an interactive eBook.
