This textbook is meant to introduce statistics to the general audience. It is also meant for the first college course in statistics irrespective of the student’s area of study. The audience is assumed to have no higher mathematics background than college algebra. The authors avoided broad explanations using varieties of examples to keep the length of the textbook short. Only the materials that can be covered in a semester and that are vital in introducing the concepts of statistics are included. Partial questions that have little value in the real world are mostly avoided.
