Exploring Statistics: Tales of Distribution

Corrections

Errors in textbooks seem to be inevitable. My response is to establish a way for you to report them. As an incentive for finding and reporting errors, I pay $5.00 to the first person who reports it. In addition, I'll list your name and school. At this this website, I'll provide a list of errors and corrections; you can note the fixes in your book. Errors found so far are listed below. Corrections that have no attribution were identified by me or by editors.

If you find an error, email me at and include your school. Thanks in advance.
