For most students, statistical tests remain a "black box" into which they feed data and harvest the output with little understanding of what the black box is doing or why it works. This lack of understanding can lead to egregious errors and unwarranted conclusions about the outcome of a study. The goal of this book is to provide you, the student, with a basic understanding and appreciation of the theoretical concepts upon which statistical analyses are based.
Innovative platforms such as Wolfram Mathematica provide marvelous ways of illustrating basic statistical concepts and demonstrating how they work, so that with only a basic understanding of algebra, one can begin to make sense of and master the black box of statistics and research design.
This book includes fully manipulatable demonstrations using Wolfram Mathematica, as well as a homework module to test your understanding and communicate with your instructor.
The book can be read using Wolfram Player version 12.1, available for free at:
