Elementary Statistics: A Step By Step Approach 8e, Bluman

Elementary Statistics: A Step By Step Approach 8th Edition PDF Download Ebook. Allan Bluman provides a significant leap forward in terms of online course management with McGraw-Hill’s new homework platform, Connect Statistics – Hosted by ALEKS.

Statistic instructors served as digital contributors to choose the problems that will be available, authoring each algorithm and providing stepped out solutions that go into great detail and are focused on areas where students commonly make mistakes. From there, the ALEKS Corporation reviewed each algorithm to ensure accuracy. The result is an online homework platform that provides superior content and feedback, allowing students to effectively learn the material being taught.

It is for introductory statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. The book is non-theoretical, explaining concepts intuitively and teaching problem solving through worked examples and step-by-step instructions. In recent editions, author has placed more emphasis on conceptual understanding and understanding results, along with increased focus on Excel, MINITAB, and the TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus graphing calculators; computing technologies commonly used in such courses.

The 300 new exercises most based on actual data were added to the book. Students are motivated by seeing statistics applied to the real world, as they learn to work with "messy" numbers (rather than data contrived for easy computation). Additionally, many exercises were rewritten asking students to interpret the results they just found. These questions help students focus on what a result means rather than simply finding a result.

A new feature, “Applying the Concepts” was added to each section and appears prior to each exercise set. The purpose of the feature is to reinforce the concepts. They give the student an opportunity to think about the concepts and apply them to hypothetical examples and scenarios similar to those found in newspapers, magazines, on news programs, etc. Most contain open-ended questions that require critical thinking and interpretation. “Applying the Concepts” can be used for homework assignments or used as topics for in-class discussion or group work.

"Technology Step by Step" sections show how to solve basic problems using Minitab software, the TI-83 Plus and TI-84Plus graphing calculators, or Excel. Students can concentrate on ideas rather than software syntax; they learn to translate easily from problem-solving procedures to on-screen commands.
