Open Intro project

Mission: produce an open source (forever free) textbook for introductory statistics. Our team has released several chapters, and I hope you will take a look at these and try them out. The Stat 10 version of the book will be complete before the end of this quarter, and you can download chapters for the first 75% of the Stat 10 course now: openintro.org. Later this quarter I will send out an email for feedback on the book.

Reading the Open Intro book is completely optional, however, your feedback can help us improve the book so it can be used sooner. The sooner it is ready as the main text, the sooner students can save money on statistics textbooks.
