## Description

This package includes a physical copy of Statistics for Psychology, 6th edition by Arthur Aron, Elaine N. Aron and Elliot Coups, as well as access to the eText and MyStatLab. Emphasizing meaning and concepts, not just symbols and numbers Statistics for Psychology, 6th edition places definitional formulas center stage to emphasize the logic behind statistics and discourage rote memorization. Each procedure is explained in a direct, concise language and both verbally and numerically. MyStatLab is an integral part of the Statistics course. MyStatLab gives students practice with hundreds of homework problems. Every problem includes tools to help students understand and solve each problem - and grades all of the problems for instructors. MyStatLab also includes tests, quizzes, eText, a Gradebook, a customizable study plan, and much more.
Learning Goals Upon completing this book, readers should be able to: * Know both definitional and numerical formulas and how to apply them * Understand the logic behind each formula * Expose students to the latest thinking in statistical theory and application * Prepare students to read research articles * Learn how to use SPSS MyLab and Mastering from Pearson improve results for students and educators. Used by over ten million students, they effectively engage learners at every stage. MyStatLab is being used in universities all over the world to improve student performance. MyStatLab has immersive content and engaging tools, along with time-saving automatic grading. "What students especially like about the system is that they get immediate feedback from MyStatLab on whether the exercise was right or wrong. I would recommend MyStatLab to another lecturer because I think I became a better lecturer in statistics, [as now] I'm able to provide individual students with better feedback."
- Dr Patrick Stroobandt, Plantijn Hogeschool, Belgium With MyStatLab, students gain knowledge that they will use throughout their lives, and universities gain a partner deeply committed to helping students and educators achieve their goals. For students *Pearson eText gives you access to an eBook that can be used on the go, and allows you to highlight, search and take notes as you read online. Access to the eBook depends on the package you have bought. *Help Me Solve This breaks the problem down into manageable chunks so you can work through the methodology a stage at a time, applying what you've learnt as you go along. * MyStatLab questions often require you to draw or interpret graphs or statistical data. The integrated StatCrunch software allows your students to analyse the data set in the question and draw conclusions with a simple click. For educators *Online assignments, tests, quizzes can be easily created and assigned to students. *Gradebook: Assignments are automatically graded and visible at a glance.

## Review quote

"I like the order in which the topics are presented. The order is the same way that I would choose if I were writing a text myself." - Kathleen Denson, Texas A&M Commerce "Aron et al. strives to make statistical concepts accessible to students who may not have a background or interests in math." - Brock Kirwan, Brigham Young University "This text is at a level that I would feel comfortable assigning to my intro stats students." - Osvaldo Morera, University of Texas at El Paso "I like that [the text] introduced students to more complex techniques in an effort to help them to understand the articles that they are reading with more complex statistics in them" -Stacey Williams, East Tennessee State University ".The Level of writing is it's strongest assets. Very clear step by step instructions. The level of writing is very appropriate to my students" -Stephen Armeli, Farleigh Dickinson "High-level, clear, comprehensive. The book is effective at helping students understand the material" - Kristin Lane, Bard Collegeshow more
