  • Linear Algebra with Applications: Lyryx

    Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): W. Keith Nicholson, University of Calgary, Lyryx Learning Team
    Date: Apr 10, 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]

  • Introductory Business Statistics: OpenStax

    Accessible

    Author(s): Alexander Holmes, The University of Oklahoma, Barbara Illowsky, De Anza College, Susan Dean, De Anza College
    Date: Mar 19, 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.

  • 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]

  • Mechanics

    Adopted Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Ben Crowell, Fullerton College
    Date: Jan 2, 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]

  • 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.

  • A First Course in Linear Algebra

    Adopted Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Ken Kuttler, Bringham Young University, Ilijas Farah, York University, The Lyryx Learning Team
    Date: Nov 6, 2017

    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]

  • Introductory Statistics: OpenStax

    Faculty reviewed Adopted Accessible Ancillary Resources

    Author(s): Barbara Illowsky, De Anza College, Susan Dean, De Anza College
    Date: Oct 19, 2017

    Description: Introductory Statistics follows the scope and sequence of a one-semester, introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra, and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics, by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean, which has been widely adopted. Introductory Stati...[more]
