There is a software package used at the University of Auckland called
'R'. The package was written by Prof. Ross Ihaka and Prof. Robert Gentleman
of the University of Auckland and has been primarily designed for the
macintosh although there is a version for the PC as well. As a Masters
student who has demonstrated this package in the undergraduate computer
labs for the last three years I can vouch for its abilities to concisely
convey the basic concepts of statistics.
