Cover ArtIntroductory Statistics 
by Douglas S. Shafer; Zhiyi Zhang

Publication Date: 2012

This book is meant to be a textbook for a standard one-semester introductory statistics course for general education students. Over time the core content of this course has developed into a well-defined body of material that is substantial for a one-semester course. The authors believe that the students in this course are best served by a focus on the core material and not by an exposure to a plethora of peripheral topics. Therefore in writing this book we have sought to present material that comprises fully a central body of knowledge that is defined according to convention, realistic expectation with respect to course duration and students’ maturity level, and our professional judgment and experience.
