## Overview

Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World describes our world through statistics. It makes statistics understandable with stepped-out instruction, extensive real-life examples and exercises, and a design that fits content to each page to make the material more digestible. The authors' combination of theory, learning aids and design helps you understand concepts and use statistics to describe and think about the world. Real-life examples, exercises and projects help you picture the world using statistics. The 7th Edition incorporates a thorough update of key features, examples and exercises; new Tech Tips now appear in most sections and show how to use Minitab, Excel, the TI-84 Plus and StatCrunch to solve a problem; and much more.
