Collaborative Statistics was written by two faculty members at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. This book 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. The textbook was developed over several years and has been used in regular and honors-level classroom settings and in distance learning classes.
The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The focus is on thinking statistically, incorporating technology, working collaboratively, and writing thoughtfully.
