For a two-semester or a three-quarter calculus-based Introduction to the Mathematics of Statistics course. This classic, calculus-based introduction to the theory - and application - of statistics provides an unusually comprehensive depth and breadth of coverage and reflects the state-of-the-art in statistical thinking, the teaching of statistics, and current practices - including the use of the computer. *NEW - Places greater emphasis on the use of computers in performing statistical calculations. *NEW - Includes new exercises - many of which require the use of a computer. *NEW - Expands coverage of Analysis of Variance to include the two-way analysis-of-variance model with interaction and a discussion of multiple comparisons. *NEW - Adds appendices which summarize the properties of the special probability distributions and density functions that appear in the text. *Places greater emphasis on the use of computers in performing statistical calculations. *Comprehensive coverage of statistical theories. *Features more than 1,100 problems and exercises - divided into theory and applications.
