About the Authors
  • Statistics: Concepts and Applications is an introductory textbook in statistics and probability intended principally for students in the behavioral and natural sciences who have completed a course in college-level algebra. The authors' aim is to bring mathematical, theoretical, and conceptual integrity to a body of topics standardly covered in a statistics course at this level. The authors employ an informal, conversational prose that delivers conceptual richness and mathematical rigor in an engaging way that makes statistical and mathematical principles accessible to students with limited mathematical preparation. Each topic is typically introduced in the context of lively narrative scenarios ranging from formal experimental research (e.g., research in animal intelligence) to scientific issues of broad popular appeal (e.g., the relationship of Neanderthals to modern humans). A single scenario is developed and elaborated throughout a chapter or topical section to provide a framework for concepts and principles, which are buttressed by worked-through examples and reinforced by both drill exercises and content problems drawn from a wide variety of areas, ranging from anthropology to zoology. The exercises require only a basic hand-held calculator to solve. Statistics: Concepts and Applications is supported by a package of ancillary materials: There is an instructor's manual (with full solutions to exercises rather than just answers) that is available complimentary to adopting professors. There is also a remarkably powerful and easy-to-use DOS-compatible computer software package (ASP) and workbook for the student.
