Product Description

Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. That sounds pretty boring right? Wrong! Statistics is amazing, and this cartoon guide will prove it to you. Using real world examples and simple explanations, this is entertaining and engaging way to learn statistics through a comic book.

This book will also cover the basics of calculating probability using spreadsheets. The examples mention excel specifically, but any spreadsheet application should work great.

Think you can't have fun learning statistics? Think again.

The Manga Guide to Statistics will teach you everything you need to know about this essential discipline, while entertaining you at the same time. With its unique combination of Japanese-style comics called manga and serious educational content, the EduManga format is already a hit in Japan.

In The Manga Guide to Statistics, our heroine Rui is determined to learn about statistics to impress the dreamy Mr. Igarashi and begs her father for a tutor. Soon she's spending her Saturdays with geeky, bespectacled Mr. Yamamoto, who patiently teaches her all about the fundamentals of statistics: topics like data categorization, averages, graphing, and standard deviation.

After all her studying, Rui is confident in her knowledge of statistics, including complex concepts like probability, coefficients of correlation, hypothesis tests, and tests of independence. But is it enough to impress her dream guy? Or maybe there's someone better, right in front of her?

Reluctant statistics students of all ages will enjoy learning along with Rui in this charming, easy-to-read guide, which uses real-world examples like teen magazine quizzes, bowling games, test scores, and ramen noodle prices. Examples, exercises, and answer keys help you follow along and check your work. An appendix showing how to perform statistics calculations in Microsoft Excel makes it easy to put Rui's lessons into practice.

This EduManga book is a translation from a bestselling series in Japan, co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan.

    Cartoons and statistics
    May 30, 2016

    The Manga Guide to Statistics uses a cartoon format to present elementary statistics. It's a format that kids like and that they respond to.

    The book shows how statistics are used in everyday life, which is another plus.
