This book is meant to be a textbook for a standard one-semester introductory statistics course for general education students. Our motivation for writing it is twofold: 1.) to provide a low-cost alternative to many existing popular textbooks on the market; and 2.) to provide a quality textbook on the subject with a focus on the core material of the course in a balanced presentation.

Upper undergraduate or graduate book in statistical thinking for students with a background in calculus and the ability to think abstractly. The focus is on ideas and concepts, as opposed to technical details of how to put those ideas into practice.
Statistics is used in almost every field of research. We will learn about subjects in modern statistics and some applications of statistics. We will also lay out some of the background mathematical concepts required to begin studying statistics.
Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation and organization of data. It deals with all aspects of data including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.

These notes are based on a course that the author gave at UIUC. No prior knowledge of statistics is assumed. A standard first course in probability is a prerequisite, but the first 8 lectures review results that are important in statistics.
