Elementary Statistics: A Brief Version was written as an aid in the beginning Statistics course for students whose mathematical background is limited to basic algebra. The book follows a nontheoretical approach without formal proofs, explaining concepts intuitively and supporting them with abundant examples. The applications span a broad range of topics including problems in business, sports, health architecture, education, entertainment, political science, psychology, history, criminal justice, and many more. While a number of important changes have been made in this next edition, the learning system remains untouched and provides students with a useful framework in which to learn and apply concepts.
