# Statistics Alive!

Based on years of first-hand teaching experience, Wendy J. Steinberg has created Statistics Alive!, the most user-friendly statistics text for students in the social and behavioral sciences, now in its Second Edition. She believes that this audience can master basic statistics-especially the mechanics and the underlying logic of hypothesis testing-by employing a conceptual, modular approach without dumbing down the presentation. While this textbook includes must-have topics such as frequency distributions, hypothesis formation, and inferential statistics and bivariate regression, it also includes concepts of sampling error, significant differences, and Type 1 and Type 2 errors throughout. Also, effect size and power, often shortchanged in other textbooks, each get substantive treatment. Students are well prepared for a next course in statistics. Key Features The modular treatment allows students to master prescribed chunks of information before continuing to the next module. Mathematical proofs are minimized, in favor of verbal explanations. Strong pedagogy throughout includes a series of learning objectives and key terms in the beginning of each chapter to scaffold the student's learning The "Check Yourself!" questions throughout allow for student knows immediately whether or not he has mastered what he has just read. The logical similarity of all hypothesis tests is stressed, so that the student understands the meaning of the calculations, as well as which statistics apply to which designs. A final module provides both a narrative review and a visual flow-chart for matching statistics with designs. New to the Second Edition Twice as many chapter exercises Solutions provided to the student for half of the exercises A final module on multiple regression and the General Liner Model is included, as a bridge for students continuing on to a second course in statistics SPSS point-and-click instructions and screen shots of the output for all in-text examples, so that students can solve the exercises both manually and via software Descriptive dispersion solutions shown using both N and n-1 denominators, to accommodate any instructor's preference A more comprehensive Student Study Guide and Instructor Resource Guide A version bound with SPSS Student Version 18.0 is also available ISBN: 978-1-4129-7951-1.
