New topics include the chi-square test and categorical variables/ null and alternative hypotheses for the test of independence/ simple linear regression model/ least squares method/ coefficient of determination/ confidence interval for the average of the dependent variable/ and prediction interval for a specific value of the dependent variable.

For each topic/ a customized interactive template has been created within which selected values can be repeatedly changed to observe how the entire process/ as well as the outcomes/ are automatically adjusted. Also/ in this adapted edition/ the real-world examples throughout the text/ and the information in general/ have been revised to reflect Canadian content.
