Statistics covers the basic principles of Statistics. The book starts by tackling the importance and the two kinds of statistics; the presentation of sample data; the definition, illustration and explanation of several measures of location; and the measures of variation. The text then discusses elementary probability, the normal distribution and the normal approximation to the binomial. Testing of statistical hypotheses and tests of hypotheses about the theoretical proportion of successes in a binomial population and about the theoretical mean of a normal population are explained. The text then considers testing of hypotheses about the mean of a normal population when the population variance is not known and testing the hypotheses about the mean of populations that are not normal. The book also describes correlation and regression, confidence limits, non-parametric statistics, and the analysis of variance. The text concludes by giving more complex problems and step-by-step directions for the various statistical tests. Statisticians and students taking Statistics courses will find the book invaluable.

Dozens of books have been published recently on the errors and biases that affect our judgments and choices. Drawing on cognitive science, their lessons are excellent for many kinds of decisions - consumer choice and financial investments, for example - but stop short of addressing many of the most important decisions we face in management, where we can actively influence outcomes and where competitive forces mean we have to outperform rivals. As Phil Rosenzweig shows, drawing on examples from business, sports and politics, this sort of decision-making relies on mastering two very different abilities. First, the analytical problem-solving skills associated with the brain's left hemisphere; and second, what Tom Wolfe called 'the Right Stuff': the ability to take calculated risks. Bringing fresh and often surprising insights to topics including confidence and overconfidence, the uses and limits of decision models, leadership and authenticity, expert performance and deliberate practice, competitive bidding and new venture management, Left Brain, Right Stuff, the myth-busting follow-up to The Halo Effect, explains how to perform when making even the most difficult decisions.

"Hinterhältig lustig und provozierend ehrlich." Gary Shteyngart Sind wir nicht alle immer auch Schauspieler unseres eigenen Lebensdramas? Schlüpfen wir nicht ständig in die verschiedensten Rollen? Hinter tausend Masken kein Gesicht? Einer der spannendsten und vielseitigsten Profi-Schauspieler lässt uns an den Höhepunkten und Verwerfungen dieser Kunst teilhaben. Abgründig und humorvoll, derb und schonungslos versammelt Franco die größten Schauspieler der Vergangenheit und die schrillsten der Gegenwart zum fröhlichen Stelldichein; von Jean-Paul Belmondo und Steve McQueen zu Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett oder Lindsay Lohan. Und weil das Schauspielen eine Sucht sein kann, benutzt er für seinen Roman das Konzept der "12 Schritte" und "12 Traditionen" der Anonymen Alkoholiker. Eine Ausnüchterung!

EARLY CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES IN LANGUAGE ARTS: EARLY LITERACY, Eleventh Edition responds to national legislation, professional standards, and public concern about the development of young children's language and foundational literacy skills by providing current research-based instructional strategies in early language development.

This text addresses the cultural and ethnic diversity of children and provides techniques and tips for adapting curricula. Theory is followed by how-to suggestions and plentiful examples of classic books and stories, poems, finger plays, flannel board and alphabet experiences, puppetry, language games, drama, and phonemic and phonetic awareness activities. Students will also learn how, as teachers, they can best interact with children to promote appropriate language development, and how they can create a print-rich environment in the classroom.
