• Step-by-Step Examples guide students from problem to solution in easy-to-follow steps. Solutions are also provided via video (by hand, TI-84C, StatCrunch, and Excel). Follow-up exercises assess understanding of the material presented. Many of the examples also provide a traditional text solution.  Technology steps are provided within examples that include video solutions using TI-84 calculators, StatCrunch, or Excel.

• Applet Activities appear throughout the text and help students learn concepts through an experiential approach. Follow-up MyLab exercises assess the student’s understanding of the concepts.
