http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=795692
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'Advanced Maths for Chemists teaches Maths from a “chemical” perspective and is the third of a three part series of texts designed for a first-year university course. It is the Maths required by a Chemist, Chemical Engineer, Chemical Physicist, Molecular Biologist, Biochemist or Biologist. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions are used and structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves. Coloured molecular structures, graphs and diagrams bring the text alive. Navigation between questions and their solutions is by page numbers for use with your PDF reader.'Basic Math Textbook for the Community College
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=442393
This is a free, open textbook that is part of the Connexions collection at Rice University. "This is a textbook for Basic Mathematics for community college students. The content in this book has been collected from three text books and modified, as specified by Robert Knight.״Blast into math
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=737848
This is a free online textbook offered by BookBoon.'Blast into Math! A fun and rigorous introduction to pure mathematics, is suitable for both students and a general audience interested in learning what pure mathematics is all about. Pure mathematics is presented in a friendly, accessible, and nonetheless rigorous style. Definitions, theorems, and proofs are accompanied by creative analogies and illustrations to convey the meaning and intuition behind the abstract math. The key to reading and understanding this book is doing the exercises. You don't need much background for the first few chapters, but the material builds upon itself, and if you don't do the exercises, eventually you'll have trouble understanding. The book begins by introducing fundamental concepts in logic and continues on to set theory and basic topics in number theory. The sixth chapter shows how we can change our mathematical perspective by writing numbers in bases other than the usual base 10. The last chapter introduces analysis. Readers will be both challenged and encouraged. A parallel is drawn between the process of working through the book and the process of mathematics research. If you read this book and do all the exercises, you will not only learn how to prove theorems, you'll also experience what mathematics research is like: exciting, challenging, and fun!'Blast Into Math!

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=583936
According to the author, "It is by no means a comprehensive guide to all the mathematics an engineer might encounter during the course of his or her degree. The aim is more to highlight and explain some areas commonly found difficult, such as calculus, and to ease the transition from school level to university level mathematics, where sometimes the subject matter is similar, but the emphasis is usually different. The early sections on functions and single variable calculus are in this spirit. The later sections on multivariate calculus, differential equations and complex functions are more typically found on a first or second year undergraduate course, depending upon the university. The necessary linear algebra for multivariate calculus is also outlined. More advanced topics which have been omitted, but which you will certainly come across, are partial differential equations, Fourier transforms and Laplace transforms.״Helping Engineers Learn Mathematics
