Statistics permeates nearly every aspect of our lives. From opinion polls, to clinical trials in medicine, selfdriving cars, drones, and biometric security, statistics influences and shapes the world around us. Elementary Statistics forges the relationship between statistics and our world through extensive use of a wide variety of real applications that bring life to theory and methods.
Elementary Statistics is written for students majoring in any subject. Algebra is used minimally. It is recommended that students have completed at least an elementary algebra course or that students should learn the relevant algebra components through an integrated or corequisite course available through MyStatLab. In many cases, underlying theory is included, but this book does not require the mathematical rigor more appropriate for mathematics majors.(Elementary Statistics 13th Edition, Pearson , Mario F.
