Visual Statistics: Seeing Data with Dynamic Interactive Graphics

Forrest W. Young


A visually intuitive method of statistical info analysis

visible information brings the main complicated and complicated statistical equipment within sight of these with little statistical education through the use of lively pics of the information. utilizing ViSta: The visible data System-developed by way of Forrest younger and Pedro Valero-Mora and on hand at no cost at the Internet-students can simply create absolutely interactive visualizations from suitable mathematical data, selling perceptual and cognitive knowing of the data's tale. An emphasis is put on a paradigm for realizing information that's visible, intuitive, geometric, and lively, instead of one who depends upon convoluted good judgment, heavy arithmetic, structures of algebraic equations, or passive reputation of results.

* visible facts and the medical method
* Character-based statistical interface objects
* Graphics-based statistical interfaces
* Visualization for exploring univariate data

this is often a great textbook for undergraduate classes in info research and regression, for college kids majoring or minoring in facts, arithmetic, technology, engineering, and desktop technology, in addition to for graduate-level classes in arithmetic. The booklet is additionally perfect as a reference/self-study consultant for engineers, scientists, and mathematicians.

With contributions by way of very hot pros within the box, visible facts not just improves a student's figuring out of facts, but additionally builds self belief to beat difficulties which could have formerly been intimidating.
