95% of Introductory Statistics students will never take another Statistics course. What do you want to learn?
Discover the Power of Real Data
Mario Triola remains the market-leading statistics author by engaging readers of each edition with an abundance of real data in the examples, applications, and exercises. Statistics is all around us, and Triola helps readers understand how this course will impact their lives beyond the classroom–as consumers, citizens, and professionals.
Elementary Statistics Using the TI-83/84 Plus Calculator, Third Edition provides extensive instruction for using the TI-83 and TI-84 Plus (and Silver Edition) calculators for statistics, with information on calculator functions, images of screen displays, and projects designed exclusively for the graphing calculator. Drawn from Triola’s Elementary Statistics, Eleventh Edition, this text provides the same student-friendly approach with material presented in a real-world context.
The Third Edition contains more than 2,000 exercises, 87% are new, and 82% use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples; 86% are new and 94% use real data. By analyzing real data, readers are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large, learning to think statistically and apply conceptual understanding using the same methods that professional statisticians employ.

- Extensive TI instruction: The text includes extensive instruction on how to use the TI-83/84 Plus calculator for statistics. Instructors do not need to spend any additional time teaching the keystrokes required to use the calculator for statistics.
- Triola identifies the Top 20 Topics that are essential in an introductory statistics course. These topics are identified with an icon in the text. Students using MyStatLab have access to additional resources that link these topics to definitions, animations, and video lessons.
- More small data sets in this edition make homework and in-class exercises more manageable.
- Statistical Literacy and Critical Thinking Exercises begin each exercise set to promote statistical literacy and encourage critical thinking.
- Answers from Technology: For all numerical answers, both table and technology results are provided.
- In the appropriate worked examples, solutions begin with a formal Requirement Check that verifies that a particular method is to be used.
- The Visualizing Data section has been divided into two sections, (2-3) Histograms and (2-4) Statistical Graphics, with an increased emphasis on statistical graphics.
- Chapter 2 material has been divided into two chapters: Chapter 2, Summarizing and Graphing Data, and Chapter 3, Statistics for Describing, Exploring, and Comparing Data, allowing even more flexibility in course planning.
- Videos have been expanded and supplement most sections in the book, with many topics presented by the author. The videos feature graphing calculator technology coverage and worked-out Chapter Review Exercises.
- MyStatLab provides instructors with a rich and flexible set of course materials, along with course-management tools that make it easy to deliver all or a portion of your course online. MyStatLab also provides students with a personalized, interactive learning environment, where they can learn at their own pace and measure their progress.
- Margin Essays, including Statistics in the News essays throughout the text illustrate the uses and abuses of statistics in real, practical, and interesting applications. Topics include, "Do Boys or Girls Run in the Family?" and "Safest Airplane Seats."
- Flowcharts throughout the text simplify and clarify complex concepts and procedures.
- Increased emphasis on Interpreting Results rather than simply obtaining answers helps students make sense of the results and, where appropriate, state a practical conclusion. Worked examples in the text follow this approach.
- Abundant real world examples and exercises, featuring both small and large data sets are included.
- End-of-chapter material Cooperative Group Activities, TI-83/84 Plus calculator projects, Internet Projects, and Critical Thinking Problems. The review also includes Review Exercises, which offer practice on concepts and procedures—plus new videos (available as a Digital Video Tutor or within MyStatLab) that show how to work through these exercises.
- The CD-ROM included with new copies of the textbook includes all of the data sets from Appendix B as a TI-83 Plus APP, separate TI programs for Multiple Regression and Two-Way Analysis of Variance, and STATDISK® (Windows® and Macintosh®) statistical software for instructors who want to supplement the calculator.
- StatCrunch, a powerful online tool that provides a hands-on way to do statistics, is also available with this book and may be used to supplement the calculator. Students can use StatCrunch for both numerical and graphical data analysis, taking advantage of interactive graphics to help them see the connection between objects selected in a graph and the underlying data. StatCrunch is available in the MyStatLab course.
