Welcome to Introductory Statistics, an OpenStax resource. This textbook was written to increase student access to high quality learning materials, maintaining highest standards of academic rigor at little to no cost.

The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics, by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean. Additional topics,

examples, and innovations in terminology and practical applications have been added, all with a goal of increasing relevance and accessibility for students.

Introductory Statistics follows scope and sequence requirements of a one-semester introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering.

The text assumes some knowledge of intermediate algebra and focuses on statistics application over theory.

Introductory Statistics includes innovative practical applications that make the text relevant and accessible, as well as collaborative exercises, technology integration problems, and statistics labs.

You are probably asking yourself the question, "When and where will I use statistics?" If you read any newspaper, watch television, or use the Internet, you will see statistical information.

There are statistics about crime, sports, education, politics, and real estate. Typically, when you read a newspaper article or watch a television news program, you are given sample information.

With this information, you may make a decision about the correctness of a statement, claim, or "fact."

Since you will undoubtedly be given statistical information at some point in your life, you need to know some techniques for analyzing the information thoughtfully.

The fields of economics, business, psychology, education, biology, law, computer science, police science, and early childhood development require at least one course in statistics.

Included in this chapter are the basic ideas and words of probability and statistics. You will soon understand that statistics and probability work together.

You will also learn how data are gathered and what "good" data can be distinguished from "bad."
