Learning Statistics Using R distinguishes itself by not only teaching statistics in a straightforward and concise manner, but by also having clear explanations of how to run and utilize R, a free statistical package that has an extensive library of functions. Covering a wide range of topics from statistical topics of probability and sampling distribution to statistical theorems and chi-square, with this book students will not only learn how to use a formula to calculate a statistic, but also how the specific statistic fits into the overall research process from start to finish. Overall, statistics is placed in the context of conducting research to answer statistical hypotheses, all while using discussion, explanations, and examples that include R functions to enrich students' understanding of statistics.
