Introductory Statistics is designed for the one-semester, introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra, and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics, by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean. Additional topics, examples, and ample opportunities for practice have been added to each chapter. The development choices for this textbook were made with the guidance of many faculty members who are deeply involved in teaching this course. These choices led to innovations in art, terminology, and practical applications, all with a goal of increasing relevance and accessibility for students. We strove to make the discipline meaningful, so that students can draw from it a working knowledge that will enrich their future studies and help them make sense of the world around them.

"Visionary physicist Geoffrey West is a pioneer in the field of complexity science, the science of emergent systems and networks... Fascinated by issues of aging and mortality, West applied the rigor of a physicist to the biological question of why we live as long as we do and no longer. The result was astonishing, and changed science, creating a new understanding of energy use and metabolism: West found that despite the riotous diversity in the sizes of mammals, they are all, to a large degree, scaled versions of each other... West's work has been gaming changing for biologists, but then he made the even bolder move of exploring his work's applicability...and applied...[it] to the business and social world."--

A textbook in statistics should be written to such a standard that it does what it claims on the cover i.e. it should teach statistics. Undergraduate students who use other textbooks to study statistics typically find themselves lost within minutes or even seconds! What's the point of buying such a textbook if it doesn't teach? This was the inspiration for writing this textbook. The objective was to write a textbook that enables a student to learn statistics from a book. This book achieves that objective! Learning statistics is easy if the material is presented well. This book adopts a step by step approach to learning statistics. The approach is non-theoretical and the material is taught through worked examples. The writing style is exciting and fresh and reflects the authors' style of teaching. A companion website is also provided which includes the following: A step by step guide in the use of the computer software packages Minitab, SPSS and Excel. Complete solutions to all odd numbered questions in the book. The book represents the finished product of ten years of work. To investigate it's worth it has been tested on different groups of students. Students were asked to read certain sections/chapters and to put their hands up if they experienced difficulties in understanding the material. No hands were raised! When the students had completed a section they were asked to answer the questions at the end of that section. This is the true acid test for any book. The results - approximately 92% of students answered the questions correctly while the other 8% made small/silly mistakes. This book "does what it says on the tin" i.e. it teaches statistics. Irrespective of your college discipline, be it business, economics, engineering, science, medicine, psychology etc. this book is a must for a student studying a first/intermediate course in statistics.
