Synopses & Reviews
KEY BENEFIT: Mario Triola remains the market-leading statistics author by engaging readers with an abundance of real data in the examples, applications, and exercises. Statistics is all around us, and Triola helps students understand how this course will impact their lives beyond the classroom–as consumers, citizens, and professionals.
Elementary Statistics Using the TI-83/84 Plus Calculator, Third Edition provides extensive instruction for using the TI-83 and TI-84 Plus (and Silver Edition) calculators for statistics, with information on calculator functions, images of screen displays, and projects designed exclusively for the graphing calculator. Drawn from Triola’s
Elementary Statistics, Eleventh Edition, this text provides the same student-friendly approach with material presented in a real-world context. The
Third Edition contains more than 2,000 exercises, 87% are new, and 82% use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples; 86% are new and 94% use real data. By analyzing real data, students are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large, learning to think statistically and apply conceptual understanding using the same methods that professional statisticians employ.
KEY TOPICS: Introduction to Statistics; Summarizing and Graphing Data; Statistics for Describing, Exploring, and Comparing Data; Probability; Discrete Probability Distributions; Normal Probability Distributions; Estimates and Sample Sizes; Hypothesis Testing; Inferences from Two Samples; Correlation and Regression; Goodness-of-Fit and Contingency Tables; Analysis of Variance; Nonparametric Statistics; Statistics Process Control; Projects, Procedures, Perspectives
