Intro Stat with Randomization and Simulation, 1st Edition

This textbook takes a different approach, where the foundations for inference are provided using randomization and simulation methods. Once a solid foundation is formed, a transition is made to traditional approaches.

From the Book Description:
Barr, Diez, and Rundel wrote:This textbook may be downloaded as a free PDF on the project's website, and the paperback is sold royalty-free. OpenIntro develops free textbooks and course resources for introductory statistics that exceeds the quality standards of traditional textbooks and resources, and that maximizes accessibility options for the typical student. The approach taken in this textbooks differs from OpenIntro Statistics in its introduction to inference. The foundations for inference are provided using randomization and simulation methods. Once a solid foundation is formed, a transition is made to traditional approaches, where the normal and t distributions are used for hypothesis testing and the construction of confidence intervals.
