The new edition offers SCC’s signature combination of engaging cases, real-life examples and exercises, helpful pedagogy, rich full-color design, and innovative media learning tools, all significantly updated.
The researchers invited to participate, and to author papers for this volume, are among the leaders in the field of Statistical Decision Theory. This collection features works on general decision theory, multiple decision theory, optimal experimental design, and robustness.
Mathematicians and statisticians will find the book highly insightful and informative.
The text's long-standing renown is built on an inspired framework of balanced content, experience with data, and the importance of ideas. These themes are widely accepted by statisticians concerned about teaching and are directly connected to 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 supported in SaplingPLUS for a user experience of its own. SaplingPLUS combines Macmillan's StatsTools, powerful multimedia resources, and text-specific exercises with the powerful targeted feedback of Sapling Learning, where every problem is a teaching and learning opportunity.
Clearly structured into sixteen sections, it covers everything from spectroscopy in nanodimensions to medicinal applications, spanning a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum and the physical processes involved, from nuclear phenomena to molecular rotation processes.
In addition, data tables provide a comparison of different methods in a standardized form, allowing readers to save valuable time in the decision process by avoiding wrong turns, and also help in selecting the instrumentation and performing the experiments.
These four volumes are a must-have companion for daily use in every lab.
The high school statistics course is often the first applied math course students take. STA engages students in learning how statisticians contribute to our understanding of the world and helps students to become more discerning consumers of the statistics they encounter in ads, economic reports, political campaigns, and elsewhere.
New and improved! STA 2e features expanded coverage of probability, a reorganized presentation of data analysis, a new color design and much more.
