Principles of Statistics for Social and Human Sciences
المؤلف : . Mohammad Z. Al-Raqab .Noriah M. Al-Karndari
This book is an introductory statistics textbook written for the students in social, human and education colleges to help them in learning statistics course whose mathematical background is very limited. This text is designed for one semester class and emphasizing data collection, graphical representation, descriptive statistics, statistical inference and correlation and regression analysis. These topics are introduced and addressed in a way to enable students from social, education and humanities sciences to keep pace with the changing needs of the current and future market. It follows explaining the concepts and detailed discussions along with providing various real examples. In fact, the real applications taken from students learning environment are chosen to simulate the interests of the students including social, psychology, education, criminal justice, demographics and economics sciences. In this context, our main concern is to provide students with the tools needed to apply statistical concepts. The following features are retained in this textbook:
* Real life examples are frequently used within each chapter covering a wide variety of disciplines and areas. Some sections require students to work with data sets and perform various statistical procedures and then summarize the results. The examples are used as a teacher device so that the students can understand definitions, concepts and procedures based on these real life examples.
* SPSS Statistics is received considerable attention and it is widely used through this textbook in equipping students with information and techniques that will enable them to work productively and effectively.
* Tutorial problems can be found in the last section at the end of each chapter including completion questions along with knowledge and comprehension of chapter content. The tutorial sessions are better to be given in computer labs where SPSS is available.
* Review exercises are provided at the end of each chapter to cover all the statistical concepts addressed and discussed. These exercises are covering different aspects including multiple-choice, completion statements and essay questions.
The text is written to allow some flexibility in coverage of topics completely in the class or giving the students lectures in regular classes as well as solving the tutorial problems and analyzing data by using SPSS in a one-hour recitation class peer week. In a summary, our goal is to encourage students to explore their own skills through experiential learning and project approach which provide an alternative to the traditional model of learning in the classroom.
