An introduction to the statistical analysis of data that arise from experiments, sample surveys, or other observational studies. The emphasis is on explaining statistical techniques and showing how they are used, not their mathematical origins. The book focuses on topics that are frequently used by scientists and engineers, particularly the topics of regression, design of experiments, and statistical process control. Exercises are largely drawn from applied situations in which scientists and engineers are likely to find themselves. The use of

*Mathematica* and Minitab is integrated throughout the text. Appendices A & B provide instruction and guidance in the use of

*Mathematica* and Minitab.
