This textbook teaches statistics in a different way. It is aimed at undergraduate students in the life sciences, and it will also be invaluable for many graduate students. It makes the powerful methods of model formulae and the General Linear Model accessible to undergraduates for the firsttime. The computer revolution has finally made it possible to teach life sciences undergraduates how to use the statistics they really need to know - this book provides the course materials needed to fulfil that possibility. This text presents the fundamental statistical concepts without being tiedto any one statistical package. Three supplements available on the web site provide all the information you need to conduct the analyses in either Minitab, SAS, or SPSS. All datasets are available on the web site.
