Introduction to Probability and Statistics expertly sheds light on the fundamental reasoning, methods and applications of statistics. From simple, clear explanations, students learn not only how to reason statistically, but also how to correctly interpret statistical results. The authors emphasize how to: Apply statistical procedures, uncover the meaning of statistical research in terms of their practical applications, evaluate the validity of assumptions behind statistical tests, determine what to do when those assumptions have been violated, and meaningfully describe real data sets.

- While retaining the straightforward presentation and traditional outline for descriptive and inferential statistics this Second Canadian edition incorporates more relevance to Canadian statistics students.
- The use of Metric units
- Almost 200 Canadian and global examples (such as Hockey statistics, Lotto 649, Canadian gas prices and Canadian health care)

- NETA test bank understands that an exceptional quality multiple-choice test bank provides the means to measure higher-level thinking skills, as well as recall. To ensure the value of our test banks, we have created the Nelson Education Teaching Advantage program (NETA). NETA is a program designed to validate the quality of our testbanks in a systematic fashion, and involves a partnership with David DiBattista at Brock University and our testbank authors. NETA ensures that subject-matter experts who author testbanks have had training in two areas: avoiding common errors in question and test construction, and developing multiple-choice test questions that “get beyond remembering” to assess higher-level thinking.

All supplements have been updated in coordination with the Main title.
