Describing distributions ; Normal distributions(
Visual
)
23 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 128 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 689599.7 rule). Uses animated graphics, onlocation footage, and interviews

Mathematics : modeling our world(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors of this text demonstrate using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators

Inference for relationships ; Case study(
Visual
)
16 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 88 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, onlocation footage, and interviews

For all practical purposes(

)
9 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sol Garfunkel takes the viewer on an exploration of statistics and their related display and interpretative disciplines. Methods of gathering useable reliable data, such as randomization, and sampling are discussed. Methods of graphical displaying data from histograms to three dimensional computer arrays are shown. Statistics are shown to be useful when patterns of events are more important than individual events themselves. Finally the methods for stating the reliability of the results are explored
