Creativity in context by Teresa Amabile ( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Creativity in Context is an update of The Social Psychology of Creativity, a classic text for researchers, students, and other interested readers. Creativity in Context incorporates extensive new material, going far beyond the original to provide a comprehensive picture of how the motivation for creative behavior, and creativity itself, can be influenced by the social environment.Teresa Amabile describes new findings from both her own research and from the work of many others in the field, detailing not only the ways in which creativity can be killed by social-psychological influences, but also the ways in which it can be maintained and stimulated. The research and the theory have moved beyond a narrow focus on the immediate social environment to a consideration of broad social influences in business organizations, classrooms, and society at large; beyond a documentation of social influences to a consideration of the cognitive mechanisms by which social factors might impact creativity; and beyond subject populations consisting of children and college students to an inclusion of professional artists, research scientists, and other working adults.Amabile describes a greatly expanded set of methodologies for assessing creativity, and introduces a set of methodologies for assessing the social environment for creativity in non-experimental studies. -- Publisher description

Describing distributions ; Normal distributions ( Visual )
15 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describing distributions deals with numerical measures of specific aspects of distribution, such as center (mean, median), spread (percentiles, boxplots, standard deviation), and resistance. Normal distributions covers density curves as smoothed histograms (mean, median, percentiles for density curves) and normal distributions (locating the mean and standard deviation, the 68-95-99.7 rule). Uses animated graphics, on-location footage, and interviews
Inference for relationships ; Case study ( Visual )
9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Inference for relationships discusses simple linear regression, emphasizing slope and prediction. The Case study illustrates the major aspects of statistical thinking, including planning data collection, analysis by graphs and informal inference, and additional data collection in response to partial success. Uses animated graphics, on-location footage, and interviews
The Question of causation ; Experimental design ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The question of causation describes the association between categorical variables displayed in a two-way table, Simpson's paradox, the varied relations among variables that underlie an observed association, and how evidence of causation is obtained. Experimental design covers the advantages of planned data collection over anecdotal evidence or available data
What is statistics? ; Picturing distributions ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents the why as well as the how of statistics using computer animation, colorful on-screen computations, and documentary segments

Models for growth deals with mathematical models for simple kinds of growth over time. Covers linear growth with review of the geometry of straight lines and an introduction to least squares, exponential growth, prediction, and extrapolation. Describing relationships describes scatterplots and their variations, smoothing scatterplots of response versus explanatory variable by median trace, linear relationships, and least squares regression lines. Uses animated graphics, on-location footage, and interviews
Against all odds--inside statistics ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 11 deals with the association between categorical variables displayed in a two-way table, Simpson's paradox, the varied relations among variables that underlie an observed association, and how evidence of causation is obtained. Program 12 covers the advantages of planned data collection over anecdotal evidence or available data. Covers the concept of an experiment and the basic principles of design. Uses animated graphics, on-location footage, and interviews
Correlation ; Multidimensional data analysis ( Visual )
6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Correlation covers the properties and reaction between correlation and regression. Multidimensional data analysis discusses the impact of computer technology on statistics and graphics such as scatterplots. Uses animation, on-location footage, and interviews
What is probability? ; Random variables ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What is probability defines the term and presents basic rules for assigning probability as well as an additional rule for disjointed events.

Against all odds--inside statistics ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 1 presents an overview of the nature and impact of statistics using hstorical anecdotes and contemporary applications.
