Integrating computers into mathematical statistics courses allows students to simulate experiments and visualize their results, handle larger data sets, analyze data more quickly, and compare the results of classical methods of data analysis with those using alternative techniques. This text presents a concise introduction to the concepts of probability theory and mathematical statistics. The accompanying in-class and take-home computer laboratory activities reinforce the techniques introduced in the text and are accessible to students with little or no experience with Mathematica. These laboratory materials present applications in a variety of real-world settings, with data from epidemiology, environmental sciences, medicine, social sciences, physical sciences, manufacturing, engineering, marketing, and sports. Included in the book are parametric, nonparametric, permutation, bootstrap and diagnostic methods. Permutation and bootstrap methods are discussed side by side with classical methods in the later chapters. Includes a CD-ROM with 238 laboratory problems written as Mathematica notebooks.
