Encourages statistical thinking using technology, innovative methods, and a sense of humour

Inspired by the 2016 GAISE Report revision, Stats: Data and Models, 5th Edition by De Veaux, Velleman, and Bock uses innovative strategies to help students think critically about data, while maintaining the book's core concepts, coverage, and most importantly, readability.

The authors make it easier for instructors to teach and for students to understand more complicated statistical concepts 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 Stats: Data and Models is revolutionary, yet it retains the book's lively tone and hallmark pedagogical features such as its Think/Show/Tell Step-by-Step Examples.

Features & benefits
  • Random Matters, a new feature, encourages a gradual, cumulative understanding of randomness. Random Matters boxes in each chapter foster inferential thinking through a variety of methods, such as drawing histograms of sample means, introducing the thinking involved in permutation tests, and encouraging judgement about how likely the observed statistic seems when viewed against the simulated sampling distribution of the null hypothesis.
  • Streamlined coverage of descriptive statistics helps students progress more quickly through the first part of the book. Random variables and probability distributions are now covered later in the text to allow for more time to be spent on the more critical statistical concepts, as per GAISE recommendations.
  • Introduction of a third variable in calculations, with the discussion of contingency tables and mosaic plots, in Chapter 3 gives students early experience with multivariable thinking
