1 Review
The NCTM urges the study of statistics in high school, and many schools have designed courses based on these NCTM recommendations.   Now from the authors of the overwhelming favorite for the AP Statistics course (The Practice of Statistics) comes the first text written exclusively for a non-AP level high introduction to statistics for high school students.
 
Statistics Through Applications is the ideal alternative for juniors and seniors not going into high level courses such as calculus, but who are interested in an introduction to the important topics of statistics.   The book's data analysis approach moves students away from monotonous computation to focus on the statistical thinking behind data gathering and interpretation.  This approach more accurately reflects the way working statisticians contribute to our understanding of the world.  It also helps students be more discerning consumers of statistics, teaching them to look closely at what the numbers from surveys, election polls, and medical studies are really saying. State Correlationshttp://www.bfwpub.com/pdfs/yatessta/state.htm
