About this book

In this revised and updated edition of the highly successful text, the authors have made significant changes: More than half of the ein- classes and homework activities are new. They continue to utilize for student engagement and active learning that characterized the first edition. There is stronger emphasis placed on developing student understanding of important statistical concepts. Many new data sets have been added on probability, the Central Limit Theorem, experimental design, inference for regression and chi-square tests. The publication of the first editions of Workshop Statistics (part of the FIPSE and NSF funded Workshop Mathematics Project at Dickinson College) in its three versions established the texts as the most popular for courses stressing active learning in introductory statistics. Workshop Statistics: Discovery with Data and Minitab 2/e features new pedagogical ideas that have proven to be successful with instructors and students. The Workshop approach fosters active learning, and eliminates the distinction between the conventional lecture and laboratory. Using this method every student is actively engaged in learning the material through reading, thinking, discussing, computing, interpreting, and writing. This approach is also well suited to collaborative learning, and stresses the importance of developing communication skills.
