Stat Labs: Mathematical Statistics Through Applications blends mathematical statistics with modern statistical practice. It turns the traditional teaching of mathematical statistics on its head by making a case study the centerpiece of each chapter. Chapters begin with the introduction of a real problem followed by a description of the data collected to address the problem, rich background material to put the problem in context, and suggestions for investigating the problem. This novel approach to bringing data analysis into the theoretical course is ideal for motivating and illustrating standard statistical techniques, for helping students understand mathematical statistics, and for showing how statistics can be useful in a wide variety of contexts. Stat Labs is designed for use in a calculus-based introductory statistics course. It would be equally effective as a stand-alone text or as a supplement to a traditional mathematical statistics text.
