Written with as little technical language as possible, Dr. Angela Shirley (PhD, Northeastern University) unravels the foundational concepts of statistics, many of which can be quite difficult to grasp. To explain advanced topics she uses a practical, intuitive approach, gained from her many years of teaching statistics at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad. Starting with a brief review of prerequisite probability, the text develops the theory of classical statistics, from estimation, to confidence intervals, to hypothesis testing. Along the way, students are treated to brief vignettes describing the fascinating history of statistics and how its founding fathers developed the field in response to the needs of a world on the verge of a data revolution. With many worked examples, including exam-type questions, this book provides students with a solid foundation on which to build successful careers in statistics or statistics-related fields. Foundations of Classical Statistics: Advanced Core is a textbook especially designed for students at The University of the West Indies pursuing final-year undergraduate or graduate level courses in Inferential Statistics. As such, it can serve as a valuable resource for students worldwide. A first course in Probability, as well as some Calculus, is required.
