Abstract:

A revolutionary new volume, Learning Statistics Through Playing Cards uniquely utilizes a simple deck of playing cards to explain important concepts in statistics. Covering many of the topics included in introductory college statistics courses, author Thomas R. Knapp escorts the student through populations and variables, parameters, percentages, probability and sampling, sampling distribution, estimation, hypothesis testing, and two-by-two tables. Each chapter ends with a series of exercises - answers are provided at the back of the book - designed to help the student actually manipulate the concept under discussion. Also included is an annotated bibliography that guides students to further reading. This simple approach to teaching the elementary principles of statistics and probabilities makes this an exceptional supplementary text for undergraduates and first-year graduates in the social, behavioral, and health sciences.
