Statistics Through Applications

Statistics Through Applications, Second Edition (STA 2e) is the only text written by high school teachers for high school students taking an on-level (non-AP*) statistics class.

Designed to be read, this book takes a data analysis approach that emphasizes conceptual understanding over computation, while recognizing that some computation is necessary. The focus is on the statistical thinking behind data gathering and interpretation.

The high school statistics course is often the first applied math course students take. STA engages students in learning how statisticians contribute to our understanding of the world and helps students to become more discerning consumers of the statistics they encounter in ads, economic reports, political campaigns, and elsewhere.

The TI-Nspire Technology Corner feature provides TI-Nspire keystrokes and guidance correlated to each section of every chapter. Click here for additional information.
