Introductory Statistics follows the scope and sequence of a one-semester, introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra, and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics, by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean, which has been widely adopted. Introductory Statistics includes innovations in art, terminology, and practical applications, all with a goal of increasing relevance and accessibility for students. We strove to make the discipline meaningful and memorable, so that students can draw a working knowledge from it that will enrich their future studies and help them make sense of the world around them. The text also includes Collaborative Exercises, integration with TI-83,83],84+ Calculators, technology integration problems, and statistics labs. The text and images in this book are grayscale.
Introductory Business Statistics is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the one-semester statistics course for business, economics, and related majors. Core statistical concepts and skills have been augmented with practical business examples, scenarios, and exercises. The result is a meaningful understanding of the discipline, which will serve students in their business careers and real-world experiences.
Collaborative Stastistics is intended for introductory statistics courses being taken by students at two- and four-year colleges who are majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Intermediate algebra is the only prerequisite. The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean are professors of mathematics and statistics at De Anza College in Cupertino, CA. They present nationally on integrating technology, distance learning, collaborative learning, and multiculturalism into the elementary statistics classroom.
Give your students hands-on, minds-on experience in pre-algebra topics and they will be ready for algebra in no time! The interesting, educational activities reinforce concepts in measurement, statistics, logic, coordinate planes, and more. The activities in this book can be tailored to suit your class's specific needs. By getting your students more involved in learning, they will become better problem solvers, critical thinkers, and thus better math students.
After Dino's failed attempt to retrieve Shilo from Trax's compound, Dino and Brena run into more obstacles. Trax releases his half-breeds on the Spyres. Telius, Lynx and Danko manage to escape and catch the middle of a battle between two Telkins and Dino.

Shilo finds comfort in a Spyre posing as a Telkin in the compound. The two of them almost get out of the compound until they're confronted by the second Telkin clan led by Bane. Shilo goes willingly with Bane to save her new allies, Sam and Fynn. The Spyres rally at Shilo's parent's house and encounter an unexpected visitor. Trax needs Telius' help to retrieve Shilo from Bane and Remo.
