There are three major sources:

(1) Manuals that ship with R, notably "An Introduction to R"

(2) Online materials contributed to CRAN

(3) Books...

Re. (2), among the shorter documents, "The R Guide" by Jason Owen
looks quite attractive for people at a very basic level of statistical
knowledge (matrix calculus is assumed in some sections, though).

However, these documents cover a wide range of target audiences, so
you should look at all of them and calibrate against your group.
