Statistics: Concepts and Controversies (10th Edition) – eBook PDF
There are ebooks on statistical methods and books on statistical theory. This is neither. Statistics: Concepts and Controversies 10e is an ebook on statistical ideas and reasoning and their relevance to public policy and the human sciences, from medicine to sociology. We have included many elementary numerical and graphical techniques to give flesh to the ideas and muscle to the reasoning. Pupils learn to think about data by working with data. We have not, however, let the technique dominate concepts. We intend to teach verbally rather than algebraically, to invite dialogue and even argument rather than mere computation, though some computation remains important. The coverage is significantly broader than one might traditionally cover in a one-term course, as the table of contents discloses. In the essence of general education, we have favored breadth to detail.
In spite of its informal nature, Statistics: Concepts and Controversies 10th Edition, (ePub/PDF) is a textbook. It is structured for systematic study and has plentiful exercises, many of which ask students to provide a discussion or make a judgment. Even those commendable individuals who seek pleasure in uncompelled reading should look at the exercises in addition to the text. Teachers should be aware that the ebook is more serious than its low mathematical level suggests. The focus on ideas and reasoning asks more of the reader than many recipe-laden methods textbooks.
