Helping today's students think statistically. Fundamentals of Statistics is the brief version of Statistics: Informed Decisions Using Data. With Fundamentals of Statistics, author and instructor Mike Sullivan III draws on his passion for statistics and teaching to provide the tools needed to see that statistics is connected, not only within individual concepts, but also in the world at large. As a current introductory statistics instructor, Mike Sullivan pulls ideas and strategies used in his classroom into more than 350 new and updated exercises, over 100 new and updated examples, new Retain Your Knowledge problems, and Big Data problems. This practical text takes advantage of the latest statistical software, enabling you to focus on building conceptual understanding rather than memorizing formulas. All resources, including the Student Activity Workbook and Author in the Classroom videos were created for Mike's classroom to help you succeed and stay engaged.
