Synopses & Reviews
In its third edition, Workshop Statistics: Discovery with Data and the Graphing Calculator continues to emphasize collaborative learning, require reader observation, and integrate technology for gathering, recording, and synthesizing data. The third edition provides even more guidance and resources for readers to support their active learning of statistics and includes updated real data sets with everyday applications in order to promote statistical literacy. This version of the text is recommended for use with graphing calculator technology and includes integrated instructions for using a Texas Instruments calculator (specifically a TI-83 or TI-84).
