Statistical Thinking: A Simulation Approach to Modeling Uncertainty
 

Authored by Andrew S. Zieffler

Learning statistics is sexy.

Almost every person on earth will benefit from learning some foundational ideas of statistics. This is true because statistics forms the basis of our everyday world just as much as do science, technology, and politics. Google, Netflix, Twitter, Facebook, OKCupid, Match.com, Amazon, iTunes, and the Federal Government are just a handful of the companies and organizations that use statistics on a daily basis. Journalism, political science, biology, sociology, psychology, graphic design, economics, sports science, and dance are all disciplines that have made use of statistical methodology.

The materials in this book will introduce you to the seminal ideas underlying the discipline of statistics. In addition, they have been designed with your learning in mind. As you engage in and use the skills, concepts and ideas introduced in the material, you will find yourself thinking about data and evidence in a different way.
