##### Description

Statistics is required coursework within most teacher certification programs. Beyond the Numbers presents a nonthreatening, practical approach to statistics, providing step-by-step instructions for understanding and implementing the essential components of the subject.

Most statistics textbooks geared for education are usually intimidating and meaningless to the average education major. The basic and understandable explanations in Beyond the Numbers break down complex statistical processes to simple arithmetic computations that can be applied with the confidence that accompanies understanding.

Each chapter includes key terms, chapter review questions (and answers), reading lists, and internet resources, including a website designed and updated by the author that will provide chapter summaries, tutorials, and PowerPoint presentations to assist in the organization and presentation of the material.
