Statistics Taught through Fiction

Editor(s): Krzysztof Z. Górniak, Małgorzata Mazurkiewicz

Book Description

Statistics is present in our lives, whether we like it or not, as we are constantly surrounded by statistical data. Statistics takes several shapes, beginning with ordinary numbers and ending with different types of schemes, diagrams and tables, but its form, of course, doesn’t appeal to everyone, which is how the idea of this book arose, to bring the reader closer to the area of statistical issues. With the text’s plot and use of everyday language, it introduces heroes and a science-fiction world to present an easy-to-follow account of formulas, numbers and statistical symbols.
