'Introductory Statistics follows the scope and sequence of a one-semester, introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra, and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics, by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean, which has been widely adopted. Introductory Statistics includes innovations in art, terminology, and practical applications, all with a goal of increasing relevance and accessibility for students. We strove to make the discipline meaningful and memorable, so that students can draw a working knowledge from it that will enrich their future studies and help them make sense of the world around them. The text also includes Collaborative Exercises, integration with TI-83,83+,84+ Calculators, technology integration problems, and statistics labs.'Introduction to Probability
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=302288
This introductory probability book, published by the American Mathematical Society, is available from AMS bookshop. We are pleased to announce that our book has now been made freely redistributable under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License (FDL), as published by the Free Software Foundation. Briefly stated, the FDL permits you to do whatever you like with a work, as long as you don't prevent anyone else from doing what they like with it.The book emphasizes the use of computing to simulate experiments and make computations. We have prepared a set of programs to go with the book. We have Mathematica, Maple, and TrueBASIC versions of these programs.Online Statistics Education: An Interactive Multimedia Course of Study
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=353396
This 'is a resource for learning and teaching introductory statistics. It contains material presented in textbook format and as video presentations. This resource features interactive demonstrations and simulations, case studies, and an analysis lab.' 'This first chapter begins by discussing what statistics are and why the study of statistics is important. Subsequent sections cover a variety of topics all basic to the study of statistics. One theme common to all of these sections is that they cover concepts and ideas important for other chapters in the book.'Statistics, Probability, and Data Collection Wikibook

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=353386
Abstract: The book, Introductory Statistics: Concepts, Models, and Applications, presented in the following pages represents over twenty years of experience in teaching the material contained therein. The high price of textbooks and a desire to customize course material for my own needs caused me to write this material. This Web text and associated exercises is a continuing project. Check back often for updates.Probability and Statistics eBook
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=353545
This is an Internet-based E-Book for advanced-placement (AP) statistics educational curriculum. The E-Book is initially developed by the UCLA Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR), however, all statistics instructors, researchers and educators are encouraged to contribute to this effort and improve the content of these learning materials.There are 4 novel features of this specific Statistics EBook it is community-built, completely open-access (in terms of use and contributions), blends concepts with technology and is multi-lingual (via a translation by page automation).Biological Anthropology Laboratory Activities
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=537172
The 10 labratory activities in this manual cover the standard laboratory assignments: bone and bone feature identification; Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium; living primate identification and lifestyles; bone interpretation; and lessons studying the skulls of the current known hominid ancestral forms. This books uses high quality color images and assignments that are available through creative-commons, thus avoiding copyright and royalty issues. Now other schools can use this material, saving their students the $65 cost of the commercially available one-time use black and white books.From Algorithms to Z-Scores: Probabilistic and Statistical Modeling in Computer Science
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=353373
The materials here form a textbook for a course in mathematical probability and statistics for computer science students.״Why is this course different from all other courses?״ * Computer science examples are used throughout, in areas such as: computer networks; data and text mining; computer security; remote sensing; computer performance evaluation; software engineering; data management; etc. * The R statistical/data manipulation language is used throughout. Since this is a computer science audience, a greater sophitication in programming can be assumed. It is recommended that my R tutorial, R for Programmers, be used as a supplement. * Throughout the units, mathematical theory and applications are interwoven, with a strong emphasis on modeling: What do probabilistic models really mean, in real-life terms? How does one choose a model? How do we assess the practical usefulness of models? * There is considerable discussion of the intuition involving probabilistic concepts. However, all models and so on are described precisely in terms of random variables and distributions.For topical coverage, see the book's detailed table of contents.Introduction to Research Methods in Political Science:
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=337129
This OPEN TEXTBOOK is for Politically-Oriented Web-Enhanced Research Methods for Undergraduates Topics and Tools: Resources for introductory research methods courses in political science and related disciplines The POWERMUTT Project is a cross between an introductory political science research methods textbook and an online resource for teaching and learning such methods. It includes: Topics. Each topic is equivalent to a short chapter in a traditional textbook. Tools. These are brief step-by-step tutorials for carrying out specific techniques. At present, the Tools described are some of those found in SPSS, a leading software package for statistical analysis. Datasets and codebooks. Data, and codebooks describing them, on public opinion, the American states, the U.S. Congress, and the countries of the world. Links to other sites providing additional information about research methods. Compared to traditional textbooks, POWERMUTT offers several important advantages, including: Flexibility. Your instructor may have decided to adopt the entire POWERMUTT site as the main course "textbook," or to use just a small portion of the site's resources as supplementary material. Interactivity. Want to see exactly how a table or graph was generated? With POWERMUTT PUPs (Pop Up Protocols), the answer is just a click away. Just as close is additional information on other resources within POWERMUTT or elsewhere on the Web. Affordability. In fact, it's free! However, your instructor may ask you to purchase hard copy of all or part of POWERMUTT for a nominal cost at your campus copy center. While most of the materials in the project are for reference, some, especially the Topics, need to be studied carefully. A highlighter will really mess up your monitor. You can save money by directly downloading the Topics and printing them at home.
