Making Sense of Data and Statistics in Psychology confronts the pedagogic challenge of teaching statistics to students in psychology and related disciplines. Recognising the heterogeneous nature of students' mathematical backgrounds and motivations, the authors adopt an innovative approach while ensuring ready integration into orthodox undergraduate statistics courses at introductory and post-introductory levels. Before being introduced to formal statistics, students are encouraged to develop a 'feel' for data, particularly through visual representation. Making extensive use of exploratory data analysis (EDA), the text emphasises conceptual rather than technical or procedural understanding.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book reads very well... Pleasantly relaxed and informal. It is well structured and full of interesting, instructional and germane verbal examples and pictorial illustrations.' - Neil Frude, Cardiff University 'Coverage is excellent... The authors obviously have a great deal of experience in teaching, and have brought this to bear... I like the way the authors describe the procedure of carrying out statistical tests. It doesn't befuddle students with mathematics.' - Jeremy Miles, York University 'The authors' style is designed to communicate very directly with the reader, and, I think, achieves this objective well.' - Lynne Duncan, University of Dundee
