  • Active Calculus Multivariable

    Author(s): Steve Schlicker, David Austin, Matt Boelkins; Grand Valley State University

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: In Active Calculus Multivariable, we endeavor to actively engage students in learning the subject through an activity-driven approach in which the vast majority of the examples are completed by students. Where many texts present a general theory of calculus followed by substantial collections of worked examples, we instead pose problems or situations, consider possibilities, and then ask students to investigate and explore. Following key activities or examples, the presentation normally include...[more]

  • Calculus - Volume 3 (OpenStax)

    Author(s): Gilbert Strang, Massachusetts Institue of Technology, Edwin “Jed” Herman, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Published by OpenStax, Calculus is designed for the typical two- or three-semester general calculus course, incorporating innovative features to enhance student learning. The book guides students through the core concepts of calculus and helps them understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, we are offering the book in three volumes for flexibility and efficiency. Volume 3 covers parametric equations and polar co...[more]

  • Active Calculus - 2017 edition

    Author(s): Matthew Boelkins, David Austin, Steven Schlicker, Grand Valley State University

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Active Calculus (2017 edition) may be used as a stand-alone textbook for a standard first semester college calculus course or as a supplement to a more traditional text. Chapters 1–4 address the typical topics for differential calculus, while Chapters 5–8 provide the standard topics of integral calculus, including a chapter on differential equations (Chapter 7) and on infinite series (Chapter 8). In Active Calculus, we endeavor to actively engage students in learning the subject through an acti...[more]

  • Brief Calculus

    Author(s): Benjamin Crowell, Light and Matter

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: This short text is designed more for self-study or review than for classroom use; full solutions are given for nearly all the end-of-chapter problems. For a more traditional text designed for classroom use, see Fundamentals of Calculus (http://www.lightandmatter.com/fund/). The focus is mainly on integration and differentiation of functions of a single variable, although iterated integrals are discussed. Infinitesimals are used when appropriate, and are treated more rigorously than in old book...[more]

  • Precalculus (Stitz-Zeager)

    Author(s): Carl Stitz, Jeff Zeager

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Precalculus is an introductory text. The material is presented at a level intended to prepare students for calculus while also giving them relevant mathematical skills that can be used in other classes. The authors describe their approach as "Functions First," believing introducing functions first will help students understand new concepts more completely. Each section includes homework exercises, and the answers to most computational questions are included in the text (discussion questions are...[more]

  • Precalculus (OpenStax)

    Author(s): Jay Abramson, Arizona State University, OpenStax

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Published by OpenStax, Precalculus is intended for college-level precalculus students. Since precalculus courses vary from one institution to the next, we have attempted to meet the needs of as broad an audience as possible, including all of the content that might be covered in any particular course. The result is a comprehensive book that covers more ground than an instructor could likely cover in a typical one- or two-semester course; but instructors should find, almost without fail, that the...[more]

  • Practical Meteorology: An Algebra-based Survey of Atmospheric Science

    Author(s): Roland Stull, UBC

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: The author designed this book for students and professionals who want to understand and apply basic meteorological concepts, but who don’t need to derive equations. To make this book accessible to more people, the author converted the equations into algebra. With algebraic approximations to the atmosphere, you can see the physical meaning of each term and you can plug in numbers to get usable answers. No previous knowledge of meteorology is needed — the book starts from the ...[more]

  • A First Course in Linear Algebra (Lyryx)

    Author(s): Ken Kuttler, Bringham Young University, Ilijas Farah, York University, The Lyryx Learning Team

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: This text, originally by Ken Kuttler, has been redesigned by the Lyryx editorial team as a first course in linear algebra for science and engineering students who have an understanding of basic algebra. All major topics of linear algebra are available in detail, as well as proofs of important theorems. In addition, connections to topics covered in advanced courses are introduced. The text is designed in a modular fashion to maximize flexibility and facilitate adaptation to a given course outlin...[more]

  • Linear Algebra with Applications (Lyryx)

    Author(s): W. Keith Nicholson, University of Calgary, Lyryx Learning Team

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: After being traditionally published for many years Linear Algebra with Applications by W. Keith Nicholson is now released as an open educational resource and part of Lyryx with Open Texts! Overall, the aim of the text is to achieve a balance among computational skills, theory, and applicationsof linear algebra. It is a relatively advanced introduction to the ideas and techniques of linear algebra targeted for science and engineering students who need to understand not only how to use these meth...[more]
