About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1958, this informative textbook is the first part of a two-volume set, which explores the subject of statistics in full, from elementary to advanced level. Primarily aimed at school students as a course of self-study, this first part focuses on the elementary and contains multiple examples and exercises, predominantly taken from past examination papers so as to meet the requirements of examinations at the time of publication. Chapters cover all of the key topics expected of an elementary-level statistics course; chapter titles include, 'Frequency distributions', 'Averages' and 'The analysis of a time-series'. Notably, the more difficult sections are marked with asterisks and tables of logarithms, antilogarithms, squares and square roots are included for reference. This 'numerical, experimental and practical' book will be of great value to scholars of mathematics as well as to anyone with an interest in physics, economics and the history of education.
