# A repository of materials for my statistics textbooks

## About Milton

Milton the cat is a character from my book An
Adventure in Statistics who finds himself the reluctant teacher of
the book’s hero, Zach Slade, who wakes up to find that his soul mate
Alice has vanished. To find her, he must solve a puzzle using the only
clue he has – Alice’s unfinished research report. To do this he needs to
learn statistics … fast. Milton becomes Zach’s mentor, and now that
Zach’s quest is over, Milton has decided to be your mentor too by
creating this repository of statistics tutorials that accompany my
books.

## Roadmap

The menus link to materials relating to the following textbooks:

**SPSS**: Materials for my textbook **Discovering
Statistics Using IBM SPSS Statistics**. The ‘official’ companion
website maintained by the publishers is at https://edge.sagepub.com/field5e,
but it links back to this website because it makes sense for me to
maintain and update certain resources (e.g., Smart Alex tasks,
Self-Tests). For a more coherant experience, you might use the official
companion website, which will bring you here when you need it. I have
some interactive IBM SPSS Statistics tutorials here too.
**adventr**: Materials for my textbook **An
Adventure in Statistics**. The ‘official’ companion website
maintained by the publishers is at https://edge.sagepub.com/field-an-adventure-in-stats,
but the *adventr* menu has information about an R package called
`adventr`

that accompanies the book and teaches you R using a
series of interactive tutorials.
**discovr**: Materials for my textbook
**Discovering Statistics Using R and Rstudio**. This
section is under development because I’m writing a new edition of this
book. There’s not much here yet, other than information about a package
for R that I’m developing that
contains a series of interactive tutorials that teach you R as you work
through the textbook.
