"Masses of numerical data?"...that would be numbers. Sometimes lots of them. All over the world today, numbers serve to shape our ideas, discussions, arguments and decisions. Nearly every profession requires an understanding of and ability to work with numbers. Some see a need for greater levels of statistical literacy to enable us all to deal more appropriately with the data and numbers we encounter everyday. The internet contains a wealth of statistics content, but too often it is proprietary, inadequate, and lacking the flexibility to adapt to learner needs. The need for educational content in statistics that is open, reliable, appealing and adaptable is now greater than ever.

The purpose of the WE Statistics Content project is to create content modules that provide instruction in beginning statistics. These modules can then be collected into larger units or courses, as needed to serve individual learners.
