This text is written from the perspective that statistics is an integrated set of tools used together to uncover the story contained in numerical data. Accordingly, the text comes with a disk containing a series of real data sets to motivate discussions of appropriate methods of analysis. The presentation is informal, yet rigorous; it is based on a conceptual approach supported by an understanding of underlying mathematical foundations. Students learn that more than one method of analysis is typically needed and that an ample characterization of results is a critical component of any data analytic plan. The use of real data and SPSS to perform computations and create graphical summaries not only enables a greater emphasis on conceptual understanding and interpretation, but also allows students to study statistics in a way that reflects statistical practice.
