Without the use of higher mathematics, this classic demonstrates the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas.
|Practical Statistics Simply Explained |
by Dr. Russell A. Langley
Primer on how to draw valid conclusions from numerical data using logic and the philosophy of statistics rather than complex formulae. Discusses averages and scatter, investigation design, more. Problems, solutions.
|Principles of Statistics |
by M. G. Bulmer
Concise description of classical statistics, from basic dice probabilities to modern regression analysis. Equal stress on theory and applications. Moderate difficulty; only basic calculus required. Includes problems with answers.
