4434Mathematics Grade 1
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=891754
This first grade textbook provides an orderly development of historically grade level appropriate content that contributes to the proper evolution of elementary school mathematics. It was created from some of the 24,377 modules in the CONNEXIONS collection, housed at Rice University, Houston, Texas. This textbook has from its creation in 2009 been the pioneering Open Educational Resource (OER) textbook for this grade level.Introductory Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=880392
This textbook is designed as a one-semester introductory statistics course for general education students. The authors believe that the students in this course are best served by a focus on the core material and not by an exposure to a plethora of peripheral topics. Therefore in writing this book they sought to present material that comprises fully a central body of knowledge that is defined according to convention, realistic expectation with respect to course duration and students’ maturity level, and their professional judgment and experience.Orange Grove Texts Plus: Open Textbooks
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=864531
The Orange Grove Digital Repository and University Press of Florida have formed a partnership to offer students affordable, accessible, and adaptable open textbooks that you can download using a PDF Reader to mobile devices and computers.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=864657
The LATin Project is Latin America's Open Textbook Initiative is to publish and make available open textbooks in Spanish and Portuguese for Latin American schools and universities. The LATin Project, modeled after the Connexions(TM) Project, is an online collaborative writing project where teachers, professors, consultants, and experts, as a group community, share their teaching experiences, knowledge, and expertise in writing and publishing high-quality open textbooks that will be affordable and available to both students and educators.Their first open textbooks were released and made available in January 2014 and their goal is to eventually provide students with open textbooks in all areas/fields of study. The open textbook Creative Common License will be listed under the Latin American country that contributed/published the material content for the open textbook.BCcampus - OpenEd

This catalog contains over 150 open textbooks covering Accounting, Business, Economics, Humanities, IT, Law, Math/Statistics, Natural/Physical and Social Sciences.The Cubic Formula Tutorials of Tartaglia, Cardano and Vieta
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=845852
There are several formulas for solving the cubic equation. The earliest are usually credited to the sixteenth century mathematicians; del Ferro, Tartaglia and Cardano. Present day authors usually mention Tartaglia and Cardano, but del Ferro and Vieta also made important contributions. In this tutorial we choose to label our formulas with the names Tartaglia, Cardano, and Vieta. The Italian mathematicians Scipione del Ferro (1465–1526), Niccolò Tartaglia (1500–1557), Girolamo Cardano (1501–1576), Rafael Bombelli (1526-1572), and the French mathematician Franciscus Vieta (1540-1603), are credited with using a formula to calculating a real root of the depressed cubic equation . For convenience, we will include the possibility of the remaining two roots being complex, and thus begin a tutorial for exploring some to the possibilities for solving cubic equations. An introductory module for some of the history about cubic formulae is ״The Origin of Complex Numbers.״Calculus 2b - Real Functions in Several Variables

This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'The book is based on lecture notes Larissa created while teaching large classes of STEM students at a University of widening access and embodies a systematic and efficient teaching method that marries modern evidence-based pedagogical findings with ideas that can be traced back to such educational and mathematical giants as Socrates and Euler. The courses, which incorporated Larissa's modules, had been accredited by several UK professional bodies, often after ascertaining that there was no correlation between quality of student degrees and quality of their qualifications on entry.'
