Statistics: Learning From Data, AP Edition
Roxy Peck and Chris Olsen
Peck and Olsen emphasize the integration of conceptual and mechanical dimensions of using statistics to transform data into information. Their introductory textbook covers collecting data, describing data distributions, reasoning about probability as a foundation for inference, learning from sample data, and additional opportunities to learn from data. Among the topics are describing bivariate numerical data, sampling variability and sampling distributions, estimating a population proportion, and learning from categorical data. Each chapter ends with sample multiple-choice questions typical of the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
