The Statistics Teaching and Resource (STAR) Library was an online journal of materials for teaching statistics. Although it is no longer accepting submissions, it has teamed with to allow continued access to the quality materials previously submitted. For more information on the STAR Library see the STAR Information page. Below is a list of activities published to the STAR Library:
