Introductory Statistics: Concepts, Models, and Applications

David Stockburger, Southwest Missouri State University

This complete textbook covers introductory statistics in nearly 30 chapters, from algebra through critical values. The goal is to develop the concept of creating mathematical models of the world and the use of hypothesis testing as a process of verifying those models. Each chapter is presented in sections, with diagrams, graphs, tables, and extensive notation. Some exercises are offered which use SPSS/WIN 7.0. This resource is part of the Teaching Quantitative Skills in the Geosciences collection.
