Introductory Statistics – Sheldon M. Ross – 3rd Edition


In this 3rd edition, Introductory Statistics, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text’s main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and from diverse areas, and an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the methods. Concepts are motivated, illustrated and explained in a way that attempts to increase one’s intuition. To quote from the preface, “It is only when a develops a feel or intuition for that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data.”

Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples.

and examples refer to real-world issues, such as gun control, stock price models, health issues, driving age limits, school admission ages, use of helmets, sports, fraud and many others.
