Book Description

Written by a renowned statistician, this book presents the basic ideas behind the statistical methods commonly used in studies of human subjects. It is an ideal guide for advanced undergraduates who are beginning to do their own research. It presents the basic principles in a non-mathematical way and is accessible to a wide audience with little background in statistics. It collects a large amount of material scattered throughout the literature and will be an invaluable tool for projects in a wide range of disciplines.

Accessible to a wide audience with little background in statistics, the book outlines the necessary steps to conduct research on human subjects. Through a series of questions and checklists, it carries the reader through each stage of the research project. The book contains very detailed and practical considerations for research design which are likely to be overlooked by novice researchers (and perhaps even a few statisticians).

  • Introduction to the Theory of Statistics (Alexander M. Mood, et al)

    This book is a self contained introduction to classical statistical theory. The material is suitable for students who have successfully completed a single year's course in calculus with no prior knowledge of statistics or probability.

  • Introductory Statistics (OpenStax College)

    This book is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra, and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it.

  • Seeing Theory: A Visual Introduction to Probability and Statistics

    The goal of this book is to make statistics more accessible through interactive visualizations (using D3.js). It visualizes the fundamental concepts covered in an introductory college statistics or Advanced Placement statistics class.

  • Introduction to Statistical Thinking, with R, without Calculus

    This is an introduction to statistics, with R, without calculus, for students who are required to learn statistics, students with little background in mathematics and often no motivation to learn more.
