The skill of statistical thinking is increasing in importance in this predominantly interdisciplinary and data-driven world. Mendenhall, Beaver, and Beaver’s INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS, 15th Edition is a major overhaul from the previous edition, lowering the reading level, introducing concepts in a more intuitive way and significantly increasing homework scaffolding for difficulty level. Written in compliance with the GAISE college report, this text teaches students to become problem solvers who are adept at using technology to facilitate statistical reasoning as well as the interpretation of statistical results. Students will be able to describe real sets of data meaningfully, what the statistical tests mean in terms of their practical applications, how to evaluate the validity of the assumptions behind statistical tests and know what to do when statistical assumptions have been violated. The 15th edition contains 1884 exercises, employs real data throughout and includes at least 75% new or updated examples. INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS, 15th Edition, adds new sections on the uniform and exponential distributions, normal probability plots for assessing normality, best subsets regression procedures and binary logistic regression.
