# Book: Introductory Statistics (OpenStax)

- Page ID
- 689

*Introductory Statistics* was conceived and written to fit a particular topical sequence, but it can be used flexibly to accommodate other course structures. One such potential structure, which fits reasonably well with the textbook content, is provided below. Please consider, however, that the chapters were not written to be completely independent, and that the proposed alternate sequence should be carefully considered for student preparation and textual consistency.

- 1: Sampling and Data
- 2: Descriptive Statistics
- 3: Probability Topics
- 4: Discrete Random Variables
- 5: Continuous Random Variables
- 6: The Normal Distribution
- 7: The Central Limit Theorem
- 8: Confidence Intervals
- 9: Hypothesis Testing with One Sample
- 10: Hypothesis Testing with Two Samples
- 11: The Chi-Square Distribution
- 12: Linear Regression and Correlation
- 13: F Distribution and One-Way ANOVA
