Shorn of all subtlety and led naked out of the protec tive fold of educational research literature, there comes a sheepish little fact: lectures don't work nearly as well as many of us would like to think. -George Cobb (1992) This book contains activities that guide students to discover statistical concepts, explore statistical principles, and apply statistical techniques. Students work toward these goals through the analysis of genuine data and through inter action with one another, with their instructor, and with technology. Providing a one-semester introduction to fundamental ideas of statistics for college and advanced high school students, Warkshop Statistics is designed for courses that employ an interactive learning environment by replacing lectures with hands on activities. The text contains enough expository material to stand alone, but it can also be used to supplement a more traditional textbook. Some distinguishing features of Workshop Statistics are its emphases on active learning, conceptual understanding, genuine data, and the use of technology. The following sections of this preface elaborate on each of these aspects and also describe the unusual organizational structure of this text.
This book is meant to be a supplement to a more detailed statistics textbook, such as that recommended for a statistics course in the social sciences. Also, as a reference book to refresh your memory about statistical concepts.

For courses in Introductory Statistics. Encourages statistical thinking using technology, innovative methods, and a sense of humor Inspired by the 2016 GAISE Report revision, Intro Stats, 5th Edition by De Veaux/Velleman/Bock uses innovative strategies to help students think critically about data - while maintaining the book's core concepts, coverage, and most importantly, readability. By using technology and simulations to demonstrate variability at critical points throughout the course, the authors make it easier for students to understand more complicated statistical later in the course (such as the Central Limit Theorem). In addition, students get more exposure to large data sets and multivariate thinking, which better prepares them to be critical consumers of statistics in the 21st century. The 5th Edition's approach to teaching intro stats is revolutionary, while retaining its lively tone and popular features such as Think/Show/Tell examples. Also available with MyLab Statistics Used by nearly one million students a year, MyLab(tm) Statistics is the world's leading online program for teaching and learning statistics. MyLab Statistics delivers assessment, tutorials, and multimedia resources that provide engaging and personalized experiences for each student, so learning can happen in any environment.
