Probability and Statistics eBook

Written by: UCLA Statistics Online Computational Resource

The UCLA Statistics Online Computational Resource has assembled a Wiki for a probability and statistics ebook. Like most Wikis, this one is designed for public input in the hopes of building an even more useful resource for students and educators. The project leaders suggest that this ebook would be useful for students hoping to earn AP statistics credit.

Material is presented as a series of inter-linked pages. The site offers experiments, distributions, functions and numerous other interactive tools for learning statistics. The information appears to be written in fairly simple language but I found the overall design a bit frustrating. It’s not an eBook as I would use that term. Access to individual topics is fairly straightforward but you really can’t read the material like you would a book – moving smoothly from one section to another with a minimum of clicks. There are also places where they link to Wikipedia rather than to additional information on their own website. I’ve included it here anyway in hopes that the overall plain language of the text might prove helpful to someone.
