Purchased for my grandson who is a freshman in college working toward a degree in engineering. Used as reference when more explanation is needed for his calculator.

Of course it can be used for Sr high classes because it is written in plain language and uses excellent graphic illustrations. Statistics and Probability using the TI 89 is more than a math book. It teaches about failures in surveys, and in fact fraudulent surveys. This is an essential teaching and should be included in college classes. Of course it can be used for Sr high classes because it is written in plain language and uses excellent graphic illustrations. However there is one serious error in the book. Claims Einstein created special and general theories of relativity. That is false. Einstein did not create general relativity but did formulate his own isolated special theory. The author's assumption does not effect the quality of the rest of the book.
