This free and open online course in Calculus 1 was produced by the WA State Board for Community & Technical Colleges [http://sbctc.edu].Calculus is the mathematics of CHANGE and almost everything in our world is changing.Calculus is among the most important and useful developments of human thought, and, even though it is over 300 years old, it is still considered the beginning and cornerstone of modern mathematics. It is a wonderful and beautiful and useful set of ideas and techniques You will see the fundamental ideas of this course over and over again in future courses in mathematics, the sciences (physical, biological and social) as well as in economics, engineering and others.But calculus is an intellectual step up from your previous mathematics courses. Many of the ideas are more carefully defined, and they have both a functional and a graphical meaning Some of the algorithms are more complicated, and in many cases you will need to decide on the appropriate algorithm to use. And there is a huge variety of applications, too many to be able to discuss each one in class in detail.This module is part of the Open Course Library, a collection of shareable course materials created for faculty to use in their classes.

This is a free, onlne textbook. According to the authors, "We are two college mathematics professors who grew weary of forcing our students to purchase expensive college algebra textbooks whose mathematical content has slowly degraded over the years. Our solution? Write our own. The twist? We made our college algebra book free and we distribute it as a .pdf file under the Creative Commons License. What’s more, the LaTeX source code is also available under the same license.״

״Here are my online notes for my Algebra course that I teach here at Lamar University, although I have to admit that it’s been years since I last taught this course. At this point in my career I mostly teach Calculus and Differential Equations.Despite the fact that these are my “class notes”, they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Algebra or needing a refresher for algebra. I’ve tried to make the notes as self contained as possible and do not reference any book. However, they do assume that you’ve has some exposure to the basics of algebra at some point prior to this. While there is some review of exponents, factoring and graphing it is assumed that not a lot of review will be needed to remind you how these topics work.״

״Prepares college students for the mathematics they need in the social sciences, computer science, business, economics, and the physical sciences up to the pre-Calculus level. It is also intended to serve a course that has as its objective an introduction to, or review of, what is currently called “pre-Calculus” topics. Some of the topics that are amplified in modern discrete mathematics and finite mathematics courses are introduced.״Please note that this site will try to sell supplements and you must create an account. However, there is no charge for the download of the textbook. As noted on the website, “Free access to the online book. Includes StudyBreak Ads (advertising placed in natural subject breaks).”

This online course comes from the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) by Carnegie Mellon. “The course includes self-guiding materials and activities, and is ideal for independent learners, or instructors trying out this course package.”״Discrete mathematics, also called finite mathematics or decision mathematics, is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete in the sense of not supporting or requiring the notion of continuity. Objects studied in finite mathematics are largely countable sets such as integers, finite graphs, and formal languages. Concepts and notations from discrete mathematics are useful to study or describe objects or problems in computer algorithms and programming languages.״At this point only one of the planned 15 modules is currently available, that on Groups.

״Here are my online notes for my differential equations course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes”, they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn how to solve differential equations or needing a refresher on differential equations.I’ve tried to make these notes as self contained as possible and so all the information needed to read through them is either from a Calculus or Algebra class or contained in other sections of the notes.״
