In their bestselling MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS WITH APPLICATIONS, premiere authors Dennis Wackerly, William Mendenhall, and Richard L. Scheaffer present a solid foundation in statistical theory while conveying the relevance and importance of the theory in solving practical problems in the real world. The authors’ use of practical applications and excellent exercises helps students discover the nature of statistics and understand its essential role in scientific research.
- The authors efficiently use mathematics as a necessary tool to promote a firm understanding of statistical techniques.
- Stressing connectivity, the authors explain not only how major topics play a role in statistical inference but also how the topics are related to one another. These integrating discussions appear most frequently in chapter introductions and conclusions.
- This text takes a practical approach in both the exercises throughout and the useful topics in statistical methodology covered in the last five chapters.
- Exercises are based on real data or actual experimental scenarios which allow students to see the practical uses of various statistical and probabilistic methods.
