PM user-s163 user-F452 To the Instructor: About this Book elcome to the sixth edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics. This book is the cumulation of 40 years of teaching undergraduates and 20 years of writing texts. Previous editions have been very successful, and we think that this new edition is the best yet. In this preface we describe for instructors the nature and features of the book and the changes in this sixth edition. BPS is designed to be accessible to college and university students with limited quantitative background—“just algebra” in the sense of being able to read and use simple equations. It is usable with almost any level of technology for calculating and graphing—from a $15 “two-variable statistics” calculator through a graphing calculator or spreadsheet program through full statistical software. Of course, graphs and calculations are less tedious with good technology, so we recommend making available to students the most effective technology that circumstances permit. Despite its rather low mathematical level, BPS is a “serious” text in the sense that it wants students to do more than master the mechanics of statistical calculations and graphs. Even quite basic statistics is very useful in many fields of study and in everyday life, but only if the student has learned to move from a real-world setting to choose and carry out statistical methods and then carry conclusions back to the original setting. These translations require some conceptual understanding of such issues as the distinction between data analysis and inference, the critical role of where the data come from, the reasoning of inference, and the conditions under which we can trust the conclusions of inference. BPS tries to teach both the mechanics and the concepts needed for practical statistical work, at a level appropriate for beginners. BPS is designed to reflect the actual practice of statistics, where data analysis and design of data production join with probability-based inference to form a coherent science of data. There are good pedagogical reasons for beginning with data analysis (Chapters 1 to 7), then moving to data production (Chapters 8 and 9), and then to probability (Chapters 10 to 13) and inference (Chapters 14 to 29). In studying data analysis, students learn useful skills immediately and get over some of their fear of statistics. Data analysis is a necessary preliminary to inference in practice, because inference requires clean data. Designed data production is the surest foundation for inference, and the deliberate use of chance in random sampling and randomized comparative experiments motivates the study of probability in a course that emphasizes data-oriented statistics. BPS gives a full presentation of basic probability and inference (20 of the 29 chapters) but places it in the context of statistics as a whole. W GUIDING PRINCIPLES AND THE GAISE GUIDELINES David Moore has based BPS on three principles: balanced content, experience with data, and the importance of ideas. These principles are widely accepted by statisticians concerned about teaching and are directly connected to and reflected by the viii FM.indd Page ix 11/9/11 3:58:33 PM user-s163 user-F452 • T O T H E I N STRUC TOR themes of the College Report of the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Project. The GAISE Guidelines includes six recommendations for the introductory statistics course. The content, coverage, and features of BPS are closely aligned to these recommendations: 1. Emphasize statistical literacy and develop statistical thinking. The intent of BPS is to be modern and accessible. The exposition is straightforward and concentrates on major ideas and skills. One principle of writing for beginners is not to try to tell students everything you know. Another principle is to offer frequent stopping points, marking off digestible bites of material. Statistical literacy is promoted throughout BPS in the many examples and exercises drawn from the popular press and from many fields of study. Statistical thinking is promoted in examples and exercises that give enough background to allow students to consider the meaning of their calculations. Exercises often ask for conclusions that are more than a number (or “reject H0”). Some exercises require judgment in addition to right-or-wrong calculations and conclusions. Statistics, more than mathematics, depends on judgment for effective use. BPS begins to develop students’ judgment about statistical studies. 2. Use real data. The study of statistics is supposed to help students work with data in their varied academic disciplines and in their unpredictable later employment. Students learn to work with data by working with data. BPS is full of data from many fields of study and from everyday life. Data are more than mere numbers—they are numbers with a context that should play a role in making sense of the numbers and in stating conclusions. Examples and exercises in BPS, though intended for beginners, use real data and give enough background to allow students to consider the meaning of their calculations. 3. Stress conceptual understanding rather than mere knowledge of procedures. A first course in statistics introduces many skills, from making a stemplot and calculating a correlation to choosing and carrying out a significance test. In practice (even if not always in the course), calculations and graphs are automated. Moreover, anyone who makes serious use of statistics will need some specific procedures not taught in her college stat course. BPS therefore tries to make clear the larger patterns and big ideas of statistics, not in the abstract, but in the context of learning specific skills and working with specific data. Many of the big ideas are summarized in graphical outlines. Three of the most useful appear inside the front cover. Formulas without guiding principles do students little good once the final exam is past, so it is worth the time to slow down a bit and explain the ideas. 4. Foster active learning in the classroom. Fostering active learning is the business of the teacher, though an emphasis on working with data helps. To this end, we have created interactive applets to our specifications and made them available online and on the text CD. The applets are designed primarily to help in learning statistics rather than in doing statistics. An icon calls ix FM.indd Page x 11/9/11 3:58:33 PM user-s163 x user-F452 TO THE INS TR U CTO R • attention to comments and exercises based on the applets. We suggest using selected applets for classroom demonstrations even if you do not ask students to work with them. The Correlation and Regression, Confidence Interval, and P-value applets, for example, convey core ideas more clearly than any amount of chalk and talk. We also provide Web exercises at the end of each chapter. Our intent is to take advantage of the fact that most undergraduates are “Web savvy.” These exercise ...
