Publisher Comments:

STATISTICS: THE EXPLORATION AND ANALYSIS OF DATA, 7th Edition introduces you to the study of statistics and data analysis by using real data and attention-grabbing examples. The authors guide you through an intuition-based learning process that stresses interpretation and communication of statistical information. Simple notation--including the frequent substitution of words for symbols--helps you grasp concepts and cement your comprehension.

About the Author

Dr. Roxy Peck has been a professor in the Department of Statistics at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo since 1979, serving for six years as Chair and currently in her fourth year as Associate Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics. Dr. Peck has been very active in the field of statistics education. She is the co-author, with Dr. Jay Devore, of the fourth edition of STATISTICS: THE EXPLORATION AND ANALYSIS OF DATA, a widely used and highly regarded textbook for introductory statistics. She is also co-author of INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS AND DATA ANALYSIS and co-editor of STATISTICAL CASE STUDIES: A COLLABORATION BETWEEN ACADEME AND INDUSTRY. She currently serves as the chair of the ASA's Section on Statistical Education and is a member of the joint ASA/NCTM Committee on Curriculum in Statistics and Probability for Grades K-12. Additionally, Roxy was the editor of the new edition of STATISTICS: A GUIDE TO THE UNKNOWN. This book contains 25 essays that showcase the use of statistics in a wide variety of disciplines. Dr. Jay Devore is the former Statistics Department Chair at California Polytechnic State University, which has an international reputation for activities in statistics education. He previously taught at the University of Florida and Oberlin College, and had visiting appointments at Stanford, Harvard, University of Washington, New York University, and Columbia University. An acclaimed and prolific writer, Dr. Devore has published several popular engineering statistics texts and a book in applied mathematical statistics, and is collaborating on a business statistics text. He serves as an Associate Editor for Reviews on several statistics journals. Dr. Devore received a distinguished teaching award from Cal Poly and is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. He earned his undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from the University of California at Berkeley, spent a year at the University of Sheffield in England, and finished his PhD in statistics at Stanford University.
