CAST link

CAST stands for Computer-Assisted Statistics Textbooks and consists of a collection of electronic textbooks (e-books). Three e-books cover material in introductory statistical methods courses with data and scenarios from different application areas. Other e-books teach more advanced topics.
  • Dynamic graphics explain difficult concepts -- most pages have animations, simulations or other dynamic displays
  • CAST is highly interactive to help keep interest and improve learning
  • The approach is data-focused with many data sets
