This site was made because there are not many good online resources available for beginning statistics students. Most sites either charge money (i.e., they sell online courses) or they assume you already know what you're doing and they include a ton of technical details that can overwhelm amateurs and students. In particular, there are very few places where you can find step-by-step examples of how to do statistical calculations and analyses. This site is a modest effort to help everyone out.

Despite the penguins all over the site, it was designed and created by a human statistics professor - you can trust the content. It was firsthand experience teaching statistics to STEM undergraduates that showed how badly a site like this was needed. But stats aren't just for STEM students, this site is designed to be useful to everyone from high school students to professional researchers.
