This collection of Collaborative Statistics utilizes R. Bloom's revisions, but excludes Chapter 11 (Chi-Square Distribution) and Chapter 13 (F Distribution and ANOVA) for a shortened version of the original introductory statistics course.
Collaborative Statistics was written by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean, faculty members at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. The textbook was developed over several years and has been used in regular and honors-level classroom settings and in distance learning classes. This textbook is intended for introductory statistics courses being taken by students at two– and four–year colleges who are majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Intermediate algebra is the only prerequisite. The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. This custom textbook collection of revisions by R. Bloom has been modified by V. Moyle for her classes at Bellingham Technical College; the homework content for the custom collection is now contained in a separate homework collection.
