A New View of Statistics

Written by: Will G. Hopkins (AUT University)

While not a traditional textbook, this statistics resource does something most textbooks fail to do – use real world examples to teach how the math being learned can be applied. Will G. Hopkins, Professor of Exercise Science, Sport and Recreation, AUT University, Auckland, New Zealand created the site for sports and exercise majors but hopes it will prove useful to anyone studying statistics. The examples are primarily sports-related which might provide a bit of interest for students.

The website has a large alphabetical index of terms and definitions for students looking for information on a particular topic. The author has also added a bit of a table of contents and he broke the topics down into the following:
