Elementary Statistics – Mario F. Triola – 11th Edition


Mario Triola’s Elementary remains the market-leading introductory because it engages with an abundance of real data in the examples; ; and exercises. Statistics is all around us in our daily lives; and Triola is dedicated to finding new real-world examples and data sets for you to use in your classroom.

The Eleventh Edition contains more than 2000 exercises; 87% of which are new; and 82% of which use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples; 86% of which are new and 94% of which use real data. By analyzing real data; students are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large. As a result; they gain conceptual understanding and learn to think statistically; using the same that professional statisticians employ.
