Description
The computer materials were updated in 2012 and are now compatible with Mathematica 7.

This book presents a concise introduction to the concepts of probability theory and mathematical statistics. The accompanying in-class and take-home computer laboratory activities reinforce the techniques introduced in the text and are accessible to students with little or no experience with Mathematica. These laboratory materials present applications in a variety of real-world settings, with data from epidemiology, environmental sciences, medicine, social sciences, physical sciences, manufacturing, engineering, marketing, and sports. Prerequisites include multivariable calculus and familiarity with the basics of set theory, vectors, matrices, and problem-solving using a computer. Contents
