This is a statistics textbook that all students can work through, regardless of their geography or earth science stream degree pathway and their existing mathematical knowledge. The main rationale for the book is to demystify the mathematical component of statistics and to present these techniques in a digestible fashion. This will be achieved through case studies that illustrate the workings of each technique, through photographs and diagrams that help students visualise some of the processes involved and through a clear explanation of how statistical software packages work.
Designed for students with all levels of math background, this book helps take the angst out of the mathematical part of statistics, and encourages students to gain the competence in statistical procedures needed for independent investigations, fieldwork, and other projects. (Booknews, 1 June 2011)
