Featuring Minitab computer outputs for results on regression analysis, analysis of variance, and contingency tables, this useful textbook provides a concise and highly readable introduction to commonly used statistical methodology for non-mathematics majors. It includes end-of-chapter problems with solutions plus 60 multiple choice questions in a final section convenient for tests or assignments. Exploring Statistics describes data collection procedures in order to show how statistical analysis is based on the way data is obtained ... illustrates concepts through concrete examples from diverse fields ... furnishes computational and mathematical details in appendixes to each chapter ... discusses current data analysis tools such as stem-and-leaf plots and box-and-whisker plots ... and stresses the planning and interpretation of statistical problems. Illustrated with line drawings and tables that clarify the presentation, Exploring Statistics is an indispensable pedagogic tool for all teachers of introductory statistics for engineering, medical, and business students, as well as a superb self-study guide for professionals who need statistical knowledge.
