This is very useful. This is my first year teaching high school statistics. The students love the interactive calculators.
Intro to stats
This e-book is a comprehensive introduction to statistics written an a narrative style easily accessible to most terrified beginning statistics students. The interactive components will be very attractive and helpful to my students. One of the best introductory statistics text I have reviewed to date.
Excellent for self-study
I used this book extensively while I was studying to pass the statistics entrance exam for a data science course, and I found it very helpful - the chapters are short and easy to digest, with at least a couple of worked examples on each subject. The online calculators are also very useful. This wasn’t the only free online resource I used, but it was one of the best general introductions to the subject I found - highly recommended.
