The SurfStat project started in 1994 with the brave but naive intent of
making an existing set of course notes available online as hypertext.
It has since grown to include an extensive glossary, interactive
exercises, JavaScript functions replacing statistical probability
tables, and the beginnings of a set of Java applets demonstrating
statistical concepts through dynamic graphics. It is the primary
learning resource for students taking STAT101 at the University of
Newcastle, Australia.
The original course notes were written by Annette Dobson in 1987,
and updated over several years' use by Anne Young, Bob Gibberd and
others.
