Ideal for a one-semester course in introductory statistics, this text is a streamlined version of Mike Sullivan’s Statistics: Informed Decisions Using Data, Fourth Edition.

From Mike’s Classroom to Yours

Drawing upon his passion for statistics and teaching, Mike Sullivan addresses the needs of today’s students, the challenges teachers face, and changes in the statistics community.  With feedback from his own students and classroom experience, Fundamentals of Statistics provides the tools to help students learn better and think statistically in a concise, friendly presentation. In addition, Mike’s contributions to the supplements and technology program make it easier to teach a multi-dimensional, engaging course.

For the Fourth Edition, active learning is easy to integrate with a supplemental Student Activity Workbook that is available along with accompanying instructor notes. The text also takes advantage of the latest statistical software, so students can focus on building conceptual understanding rather than memorizing formulas. A new example structure offers a bridge between by-hand solutions and the use of technology, and updated technology support appears in each chapter. All resources–including the Author in the Classroom videos that respond to student questions, and his national survey data in StatCrunch–were created for Mike’s classroom and are available for use in yours, to help students succeed and stay engaged.
