I assumed that there would be a teachers edition of Rossman's Workshop
Statistics, but when a colleague of mine made a few phone calls, she was told
that there is no such thing. Does anyone know if a solutions manual exists,
and if so, how we can get one? Thanks in advance!

I don't know, but there are many reasons to expect that there is none.
Publishing textbooks at this level is fairly new for Springer. At
higher levels, such ancillary materials are not the norm. Also,
Workshop Statistics might itself be considered an ancillary or lab
manual to accompany some textbook. If there are ancillary materials,
they are usually mentioned in the front matter of the book. I did not
see any such mention. These materials are usually developed for
textbooks a publisher expects to be adopted in huge numbers. I'd like
to see that happen to Rossman's book, but I really don't expect it.
When these things ARE available for college textbooks, they are
usually written by someone other than the book author -- usually
someone who will do it for very little money! (I find most of them
useless to me, but often put them on reserve for my students.) One of
the good things about Rossman's book is the supply of open ended and
thought provking questions. These would provide a real challenge
for the sort of folks who normally produce "instructor manuals"
(which, at the college level, are usually little more than solutions

However, I have passed on the information that there is interest in
such a manual. It also might be possible to accumulate solutions and
comments on the Internet.
