4434English Composition
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1028622
Introductory composition with an emphasis on essay writing in common rhetorical stylesComposition I focuses on principles of writing, critical reading and essay composition using rhetorical styles common in college-level writing (narrative, example/illustration, compare/contrast, cause-and-effect, argument).A First Course in Linear Algebra: Study Guide for the Undergraduate Linear Algebra Course
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1026760
In this book, there are five chapters: Systems of Linear Equations, Vector Spaces, Homogeneous Systems, Characteristic Equation of Matrix, and Matrix Dot Product. It has also exercises at the end of each chapter above to let students practice additional sets of problems other than examples, and they can also check their solutions to some of these exercises by looking at “Answers to Odd-Numbered Exercises” section at the end of this book. This book is very useful for college students who studied Calculus I, and other students who want to review some linear algebra concepts before studying a second course in linear algebra. This book is available online for free in google books and ResearchGate in PDF format under a Creative Commons license.A Friendly Introduction to Differential Equations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1026757
In this book, there are five chapters: The Laplace Transform, Systems of Homogeneous Linear Differential Equations (HLDE), Methods of First and Higher Orders Differential Equations, Extended Methods of First and Higher Orders Differential Equations, and Applications of Differential Equations. In addition, there are exercises at the end of each chapter above to let students practice additional sets of problems other than examples, and they can also check their solutions to some of these exercises by looking at "Answers to Odd-Numbered Exercises" section at the end of this book. This book is a very useful for college students who studied Calculus II, and other students who want to review some concepts of differential equations before studying courses such as partial differential equations, applied mathematics, and electric circuits II.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1026787
This multidisciplinary resource develops topics of interest to all those who care about and for individuals with co-occurring intellectual disabilities and mental illness. Each chapter presents current evidence informed practice knowledge. Each topic is also presented with audio enabled text boxes emphasizing 'Key Points for Caregivers.' For those who are interested in background knowledge, we provided the comprehensive literature base. And, for those interested mainly in 'what to do,' we provided text box summaries for reading and listening.The book is published by BCcampus and is part of their Open Textbook series. The book can be read online, on Smartphones or ordered in print. The ‘Key Points for Caregivers’ sections have all been read aloud and these audio files have been embedded throughout the book.Study notes for Statistical Physics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1026678
This is a free textbook from Bookboon.'This is an academic textbook for a one-semester course in statistical physics at honours BSc level. It is in three parts and begins with a unified treatment of equilibrium systems, based on the concept of the statistical ensemble, in which the usual combinatorial calculation only has to be worked out once. In the second part, it deals with strongly interacting systems in terms of many-body theory, including the virial expansion and critical phenomena at the level of mean-field theory. The third, and last, part of the book is concerned with time-dependence; and, it begins with a classical treatment of the paradox posed by the `arrow of time'. This is the question of why macroscopic systems are irreversible when their constituent microscopic interactions are reversible in time. It then treats the derivation of transport equations, linear response theory, and quantum dynamics. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on a clear, concise exposition, with all steps being clearly explained.'IVMS| Textbook of Human Physiology and Biophysics

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1022799
Second edition of a newly expanded text. This text is intended as an introduction to embedded controllers for students in Electrical Engineering and Technology at the AAS and/or BS level. It begins with a discussion of the C programming language and then shifts to using the open source Arduino hardware platform. Uses both the Arduino library and more direct coding of the controller.
