Statistical Concepts: A Second Course

Synopsis

Richard Lomax provides a conceptual, intuitive approach to the subject that requires only a rudimentary knowledge of basic algebra. Concepts are clearly stated and supported by real-life examples. Statistical Concepts features comprehensive coverage in a flexible format so instructors can pick and choose topics. It features topics not traditionally found in other textbooks, such as the layout of the data in ANOVA models, the ANOVA linear models, expected mean squares in ANOVA models, and stepwise regression. The book features a thorough and current discussion of assumptions, the effects of their violations, and how to deal with their violation. This text is designed for a second or intermediate course in statistics for students in education and the behavioral sciences. It includes a number of regression and analysis of variance models, all subsumed under the general linear model (GLM). A prerequisite of introductory statistics (descriptive statistics through t-tests) is assumed.
