Item description for Workshop Statistics: Discovery with Data and Minitab (Textbooks in Mathematical Sciences) by Allan Rossman...

In this revised and updated edition of the highly successful text, the authors have made significant changes: More than half of the in-classes and homework activities are new. They continue to utilize student engagement and active learning that characterized the first edition. There is stronger emphasis placed on developing student understanding of important statistical concepts. Many new data sets have been added on probability, the Central Limit Theorem, experimental design, inference for regression and chi-square tests. The publication of the first editions of Workshop Statistics (part of the FIPSE and NSF funded Workshop Mathematics Project at Dickinson College) in its three versions established the texts as the most popular for courses stressing active learning in introductory statistics. Workshop Statistics: Discovery with Data and Minitab 2/e features new pedagogical ideas that have proven to be successful with instructors and students. The Workshop approach fosters active learning, and eliminates the distinction between the conventional lecture and laboratory. Using this method every student is actively engaged in learning the material through reading, thinking, discussing, computing, interpreting, and writing. This approach is also well suited to collaborative learning, and stresses the importance of developing communication skills.

Reviews - What do customers think about Workshop Statistics: Discovery with Data and Minitab (Textbooks in Mathematical Sciences)?

A High School Math Teacher's Point of View  Oct 19, 2002
This is an excellent book. Its lab-style approach with practical / tangible sets of data coupled with on-target follow-up questions makes this a wonderful book to teach and learn from. This version of the textbook focuses on using a TI-83 calculator to organize, display and analyze data in most of the problems. Managing the data lists for the TI-83 calculators in class can be difficult. I recommend that you ... download the program files that Al Coons put together. He placed all the individual data lists for each problem into programs. This makes it easy to manage and transfer these files to other calculators. Especially between TI-83+ and TI-83 calculators. Solutions to the "Activities" problems and various supplementary materials can be downloaded.... I recommend using Adobe Acrobat to download the "Activities" solutions. I made the mistake of using an old web-browser and wasted a whole summer copying and pasting. This may sound obvious, but it must be stressed....Answer all of the problems that you plan to work on in class or assign for homework prior to the actual class. Some problems require advance preparation or data collected from previous class activity problems. You need to find this out before walking into a classroom. This is the first time that I've taught an AP-Statistics course and the approach of this book takes a little getting used to. I'm having a ball! I rely heavily upon this book and the Barron's AP-Statistics study guide. Good Luck. It's a great book!
Complicated but easy to understand.  Oct 22, 1999
I read this book during my senior AP Bio class. My Biology teacher yelled at me for reading it during her class. So I left, because I didn't want to be yelled at. I then received a detention. Then I couldn't do my statistics homework and I failed the class. The book was stimulating if somewhat bland. I am writing this in a Starbucks in Toronto.
Really easy to understand. Great way to explore your TI-83.  May 11, 1999
I used this book in my AP Statistics class my senior year of high school. The Workshop Statistics book was really easy to follow and understand. I have always had a hard time with math, but when I used this book, I picked up on the concepts quicker. The only problem I had with this book is the fact that explanations of the formulas and procedures were not expained as clearly as I would have liked. This book is also a great way to orient yourself with your TI-83 scientific calculator (Texas Instraments).
