    Introductory Statistics, 9th Edition

    By Prem S. Mann

    Introductory Statistics is designed for a one- or two-semester first course in applied statistics and is intended for students who do not have a strong background in mathematics. This course makes the subject of statistics interesting and accessible to a wide and varied audience by providing realistic content in examples. Known for its clarity and brevity, Introductory Statistics is easy to teach from and easy to learn from.

    The next generation of WileyPLUS for Introductory Statistics gives instructors the freedom and flexibility to tailor content and easily manage their course to keep students engaged and on track.

    Adaptive Practice

    Targeted and personalized opportunities for practice effectively help students prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve information retention better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not.
