Intro Stats, Third Edition extends the teaching innovations pioneered in the DeVeaux/Velleman/Bock books. Its focus on statistical thinking and modern practice are evident throughout. Each chapter opens with an example–and the data from that example are then displayed and analyzed to introduce new concepts. Graphics and summaries introduced in early chapters are used throughout the book, helping students become consistent statistical thinkers.

Intro Stats, Third Edition has a fun, conversational writing style, real up-to-date data, hundreds of examples based on current events, and short, accessible chapters. The innovative Think/Show/Tell examples, pioneered in the first edition, now present new data and discussions. The new For Example sections illustrate each new concept or method with a brief, worked example.

This text covers all material typical in a one-semester statistics course. The text maintains its commitment to the recommendations of the ASA-endorsed GAISE (Guidelines for Assessment for Instruction in Statistical Education) Report.
