  • Precalculus (Stitz-Zeager)

    Faculty reviewed Adopted Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Carl Stitz, Jeff Zeager
    Date: Oct 18, 2018

    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]

  • Introductory Business Statistics: OpenStax

    Accessible

    Author(s): Alexander Holmes, The University of Oklahoma, Barbara Illowsky, De Anza College, Susan Dean, De Anza College
    Date: Oct 9, 2018

    Description: Introductory Business Statistics is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the one-semester statistics course for business, economics, and related majors. Core statistical concepts and skills have been augmented with practical business examples, scenarios, and exercises. The result is a meaningful understanding of the discipline, which will serve students in their business careers and real-world experiences.

  • Linear Algebra with Applications: Lyryx

    Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): W. Keith Nicholson, University of Calgary, Lyryx Learning Team
    Date: Sep 11, 2018

    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]

  • Mechanics

    Adopted Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Ben Crowell, Fullerton College
    Date: May 15, 2018

    Description: This is a calculus-based book meant for the first semester of a first year survey course taken by engineering and physical science majors. It has a traditional order of topics whereby force is discussed before energy. It is divided into 17 chapters that cover a review of high school physics, scaling and estimation, vectors, velocity, acceleration, forces, circular motion, gravity, conservation of energy, work, conservation of momentum and angular momentum, vibrations, and resonance. A treatment...[more]

  • Combinatorics: Enumeration, Graph Theory, and Design Theory

    Author(s): Joy Morris, University of Lethbridge
    Date: May 9, 2018

    Description: Combinatorics provides an introduction to enumeration, graph theory, and design theory. It is aimed at upper-level undergraduate students and the exercises expect some mathematical sophistication, including a reasonable ability to construct proofs. The text is designed to be used in an undergraduate course, but could be suitable for independent study by a student with some mathematical background and understanding of proofs. It does not assume any background knowledge of combinatorics.

  • Differential Calculus for the Life Sciences

    Adopted

    Author(s): Leah Edelstein-Keshet, University of British Columbia
    Date: Feb 22, 2018

    Description: Calculus arose as a tool for solving practical scientific problems through the centuries. However, it is often taught as a technical subject with rules and formulas (and occasionally theorems), devoid of its connection to applications. In this textbook, the applications form an important focal point, with emphasis on life sciences. This places the techniques and concepts into practical context, as well as motivating quantitative approaches to biology taught to undergraduates. While many of the ...[more]

  • Introductory Business Statistics: Tiemann

    Author(s): Thomas K. Tiemann, Elon University
    Date: Jan 12, 2018

    Description: The book "Introductory Business Statistics" by Thomas K. Tiemann explores the basic ideas behind statistics, such as populations, samples, the difference between data and information, and most importantly sampling distributions. The author covers topics including descriptive statistics and frequency distributions, normal and t-distributions, hypothesis testing, t-tests, f-tests, analysis of variance, non-parametric tests, and regression basics. Using real-world examples throughout the text, the...[more]

  • Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems

    Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): William F. Trench, Trinity University
    Date: Jan 2, 2018

    Description: Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems is written for students in science, engineering, and mathematics who have completed calculus through partial differentiation. If your syllabus includes Chapter 10 (Linear Systems of Differential Equations), your students should have some preparation in linear algebra. In writing this book I have been guided by the these principles: • An elementary text should be written so the student can read it with comprehension without too much ...[more]

  • Calculus-Based Physics II

    Faculty reviewed Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Jeffrey W. Schnick, Ph.D., Saint Anselm College
    Date: Jan 2, 2018

    Description: Calculus-Based Physics is an introductory physics textbook designed for use in the two-semester introductory physics course typically taken by science and engineering students. This is the second of two textbooks for this course.

  • Sim Labs for Thermodynamics and Thermal Power Plant Simulator

    Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Serhat Beyenir, Sanja Boskovic; British Columbia Institute of Technology
    Date: Jan 2, 2018

    Description: This Simulator laboratory (SIMLAB) book was created to provide ancillary resources for Thermodynamics and Thermal Power Plant Simulator courses. It is intended to act as a collection of exercises to help our students merge the theory covered in the classroom with the practice performed in the labs.
