Introductory Statistics follows the scope and sequence of a one-semester/ introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra/ and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics/ by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean/ which has been widely adopted. Introductory Statistics includes innovations in art/ terminology/ and practical applications/ all with a goal of increasing relevance and accessibility for students. We strove to make the discipline meaningful and memorable/ so that students can draw a working knowledge from it that will enrich their future studies and help them make sense of the world around them. The text also includes Collaborative Exercises/ integration with TI-83/83+/84+ Calculators/ technology integration problems/ and statistics labs. OpenStax College has compiled many resources for faculty and students/ from faculty-only content to interactive homework and study guides.
