All people should have access to education, but many college students today cannot afford textbooks. Matt believes in, creates, and uses free OER (open educational resource) material. OER statistics and pre-statistics notes and activities can be found under the Statistics and Int Alg for Stats tabs. Matt's OER pre-algebra book (with statistics emphasis) can be found under the Pre-Algebra and Instructor Resources tabs. All of these resources are OER licensed through creative commons (CC-BY). You can print and use any of them for educational purposes free of charge.
