One of the goals for the development of the Electronic Encyclopedia of Statistical Examples and Exercises (EESEE) was to provide a wide variety of timely, real examples with real data for use in statistics classes. With each story in EESEE, several thought provoking questions were designed to make students think carefully about statistical issues raised by these applications.
This site is an index of modules which cover probability and statistics topics including basic probability, random variables, moments, distributions, data analysis including regression, moving averages, exponential smoothing, and clustering.
DataCounts! is an interactive website designed to help integrate social statistics into the classroom setting. Each collection contains a wide variety of datasets that can be viewed online with WebCHIP.

StatVillage is a hypothetical village in Canada. Homes in StatVillage are laid out in a system of blocks on a rectangular grid with 8 homes per block. In the middle of each group of 8 homes is a playing area. Houses are addressed using a block and unit-within-block system. Services (e.g. food stores, shops) are located on the periphery of the village and are not shown on the map. Households can be selected for a survey by using a clickable map.
This site lists a set of case studies that cover regression topics, random number calculations of pi, as well as limit theorems. On the individual case study pages are the descriptions and/or instructions.
