Written by an author team of skilled leaders in statistics education, The Basic Practice of Statistics, 8th Edition, (PDF) reflects the actual practice of statistics, where data analysis and design of data production merge with probability-based inference to form a coherent science of data. The authors’ definitive goal is to train students to carry out common statistical procedures and to follow statistical reasoning in their areas of study and in their future employment.
The textbook’s long-standing renown is built on a motivating framework of balanced content, experience with data, and the importance of ideas. These themes are extensively accepted by statisticians concerned about teaching and are directly associated with and reflected by the themes of the College Report of the Guidelines in Assessment and Instruction for Statistics Education (GAISE) Project.
The Eighth Edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics is reinforced in SaplingPLUS for a user experience of its own. SaplingPLUS combines Macmillan’s StatsTools, great multimedia resources, and text-specific exercises with the effective targeted feedback of Sapling Learning, where each problem is a teaching and learning opportunity.
