Elementary Statistics: A Step by Step Approach was written as an aid in the beginning
statistics course to students whose mathematical background is limited to basic algebra.
The book follows a nontheoretical approach without formal proofs, explaining concepts
intuitively and supporting them with abundant examples. The applications span a broad
range of topics certain to appeal to the interests of students of diverse backgrounds
and include problems in business, sports, health, architecture, education, entertainment,
political science, psychology, history, criminal justice, the environment, transportation,
physical sciences, demographics, eating habits, and travel and leisure.
