In diesem Lehrbuch wird ein anwendungsorientierter Zugang zur mathematischen Theorie der Daten und des Zufalls entwickelt, der von Phänomenen des Alltags ausgeht und bis in die axiomatische Theorie der Wahrscheinlichkeit hineinreicht. Es richtet sich vor allem an Studierende des Lehramts Mathematik, ist aber auch als sinnstiftender Zugang zur Stochastik für andere Studierende der Mathematik (Diplom, BA) geeignet. Im Kapitel "Beschreibende Statistik" werden Konzepte der Datenreduktion und -präsentation entwickelt. Der Aufbau der "Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung" erfolgt von typischen Beispielen aus, wobei die geschichtliche und inhaltliche Entwicklung des Wahrscheinlichkeitsbegriffs ausführlich dargestellt werden. Diese beiden Teilgebiete werden im Kapitel "Beurteilende Statistik" zusammengeführt. Den Abschluss bildet ein Ausblick auf die Anwendung stochastischer Methoden in den empirischen Wissenschaften. Zahlreiche Abbildungen sowie Lern- und Übungsaufgaben mit Lösungshinweisen runden die Darstellung ab.
