Description

Introductory level Workbook for all disciplines requiring a working knowledge of reasoning skills.

Dr. Kathrine Johnson received her PhD in Applied Probability from the University of Idaho and now teaches math at Boise State University. She teaches statistics and encourages students to learn statistical reasoning to help them understand how important these skills are throughout their life past graduation.

Pre-calculus treatment of descriptive statistics, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, simple linear regression and correlation, and basic data collection concepts. Emphasis on reasoning, interpretation, and communicating ideas in the context of a wide variety of disciplines with computer software for computations.
