There are three major sources:
(1) Manuals that ship with R, notably "An Introduction to R"
(2) Online materials contributed to CRAN
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.
