STAT2 offers students who have taken AP Statistics or a typical introductory statistics college level course to the opportunity to learn more sophisticated concepts and the tools with which to apply them. The book helps students gain facility in the use of common statistical models.. The chapters are grouped to consider models based on the type of response and type of predictors. After completing a course with STAT2 students should be able to choose the appropriate statistical model for a particular problem, know the conditions that are typically required when fitting various models, and use the appropriate model to make appropriate inferences. This textbook is also available on LaunchPad, an innovative online resource designed to engage students and help instructors.
