 David Moore and his esteemed coauthors transformed educational statistics by writing texts that elevate systematic ways of thinking about data over mere techniques and formulas. This philosophical principle of analyzing data and emphasizing ways of thinking over techniques and formulas is the underpinning of each of text. The authors present methods of basic statistics in a way that emphasizes working with data and mastering statistical reasoning, problem solving (rather than on methods), and drawing conclusions from data.  Lastly, real data -- not realistic data – both engages students and enables students to experience actual patterns (or lack thereof).
