For courses in introductory statistics. The Art and Science of Learning from Data Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data, Fourth Edition, takes a conceptual approach, helping students understand what statistics is about and learning the right questions to ask when analyzing data, rather than just memorizing procedures. This book takes the ideas that have turned statistics into a central science in modern life and makes them accessible, without compromising the necessary rigor. Students will enjoy reading this book, and will stay engaged with its wide variety of real-world data in the examples and exercises. The authors believe that it’s important for students to learn and analyze both quantitative and categorical data. As a result, the text pays greater attention to the analysis of proportions than many other introductory statistics texts. Concepts are introduced first with categorical data, and then with quantitative data. MyStatLab™ not included. Students, if MyStatLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyStatLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MyStatLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

For courses in Statistical Methods for the Social Sciences . Statistical methods applied to social sciences, made accessible to all through an emphasis on concepts Statistical Methods for the Social Sciences introduces statistical methods to students majoring in social science disciplines. With an emphasis on concepts and applications, this book assumes you have no previous knowledge of statistics and only a minimal mathematical background. It contains sufficient material for a two-semester course. The 5th Edition gives you examples and exercises with a variety of "real data." It includes more illustrations of statistical software for computations and takes advantage of the outstanding applets to explain key concepts, such as sampling distributions and conducting basic data analyses. It continues to downplay mathematics-often a stumbling block for students-while avoiding reliance on an overly simplistic recipe-based approach to statistics.

institute's motto "Unity in Diversity." As evidence and justi'cation of the int- disciplinary research comprising statistics and computer science, one may note thatstatistics providesone ofthe bestparadigmsfor learning,andit hasbecome an integralpart of the theories/paradigmsof machine learning, e.g., arti'cial - telligence, neural networks, brain mapping, data mining, and search machines on the Internet. Zadeh, the founder of fuzzy set theory, has observed that there are three essential ingredients for dramatic success in computer applications, namely, a fuzzy model of data, Bayesian inference and genetic algorithms for optimization. Similarly, statistical science will be a part, in many ways, of the validation of the tentative model of the human brain, its functions and prop- ties, including consciousness. As a mark of the signi'cant achievements in these activities in ISI, special mention may be made of the DOE-sponsored KBCS Nodal Center of ISI in the 1980s and the Center for Soft Computing Research of ISI recently established in 2004 by the DST, Government of India. The soft computing center is the ?rst national initiative in the country in this domain, and has many imp- tant objectives like providing a six-month value addition certi'cate course for post-graduates, enriching national institutes, e.g., NITs through funding for - search in soft computing, establishing linkage to premier institutes/industries, organizing specialized courses, apart from conducting fundamental research.
