Understanding statistics

I need a recommendation on a good introduction to the math side of statistical analysis. I got as far as pre-calculus in math and only remember some of it for daily use…yet would like to get at least a general understanding of how to interpret data. Recommendations for books or on-line resources would be appreciated. I looked at Wikipedia but too many of the terms are foreign to me at this point.

    This site is pretty basic, but I’m an engineer and still find it useful.

    “How to Lie with Statistics”, while not heavy on math, is invaluable.

    Take a look here, they have some courses available. https://www.edx.org/course-search?search_query=statistics
    They go 2 different routes: You can pay for the course and get a nice shiny certificate, or audit the course for free. They have a pretty good selection to look through.

    I recommend Naked Statistics to my new students as a overview.
