Business Statistics in Australia: Methods & Applications
Statisticians get to play detective - to conduct (including design) collaborative investigations across all manner of areas. Contextualising statistics and developing a conceptual understanding is important to support engagement and learning of statistics. Not everyone needs, nor intends, to become a statistician; however, being able to create, use, understand and even enjoy data and conduct investigations is possible, and important, for all.
The principal author, Peter Howley, is a Professor, and practitioner, of Statistics - working with people across Health, Business, Industry and many other fields. Peter has a national award for teaching statistics innovatively and inspirationally, and he brings this expertise to this textbook. He also created the freely available StatsTuneUp videos and materials (www.statstuneup.com.au) - perhaps see if you like their style to assist your decision about purchasing this ebook.
Whilst Chapter 1 is more an introduction than teaching statistical design, analysis and techniques, it is provided to help you assess whether or not this book may speak to you!
Peter also runs the National Schools Poster Competition in Australia (www.ssapostercomp.info) and its expanded form for the whole community (National Statistics Poster Competition: https://carma.newcastle.edu.au/CommunityPosterComp/) such is his desire to help people enjoy and engage with statistics and realise it is more accessible than many may have thought.
