4434General Social Survey (2014): Statistics Using SDA (Survey Documentation and Analysis)
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1254901
These exercises (15 in all) were written for instructors teaching an introductory class in statistics. They were written so each exercise is independent of the others and any one exercise can be used even if the other exercises are not used. These instructional exercises were originally written for SPSS. However, some colleges, including many community colleges, do not have a site license for SPSS. The cost of SPSS is often prohibitive, so I rewrote the exercises to run in SDA, an online statistical package written and maintained at UC Berkeley. SDA is freely available wherever you have an internet connection. I prepared a document to help you with SDA (Notes on Using SDA) which should answer some of your questions about SDA. These documents can be downloaded from the website. The data set used in this exercise is the 2014 General Social Survey. Each exercise consists of two files both of which can be downloaded: the exercise itself as a Word (docx) file and notes to instructor as a Word (docx) file. You have permission to use these exercises and to revise them to fit your needs. Each exercise has a set of keywords to give you a quick view of what is covered.Sat, 3 Dec 2016 10:29:00 -0800Linear Algebra Toolkit
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1254614
This Linear Algebra Toolkit is consist of several modules in linear algebra. Each module is designed to help a linear algebra student learn and practice a basic linear algebra procedure, such as Gauss-Jordan reduction, calculating the determinant, or checking for linear independence.Fri, 2 Dec 2016 06:11:47 -0800Digital Footprints

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1247204
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.This third and final part of Convexity and Optimization discusses some optimization methods which, when carefully implemented, are efficient numerical optimization algorithms. We begin with a very brief general description of descent methods and then proceed to a detailed study of Newton's method. One chapter is devoted to self-concordant functions, and the convergence rate of Newton's method when applied to self-concordant functions is studied. We conclude by studying of the complexity of LP-problems.Mon, 7 Nov 2016 16:16:25 -0800Real Functions in Several Variables: Volume IV Differentiable Curves and Differentiable Surfaces...

This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.The topic of this series of books on "Real Functions in Several Variables" is very important in the description in e.g. Mechanics of the real 3-dimensional world that we live in. Therefore, we start from the beginning, modelling this world by using the coordinates of R3 to describe e.b. a motion in space.The theory and methods of these volumes on "Real Functions in Several Variables" are applied constantly in higher Mathematics, Mechanics and Engineering Sciences. It is of paramount importance for the calculations in Probability Theory, where one constantly integrate over some point set in space.It is my hope that this text, these guidelines and these examples, of which many are treated in more ways to show that the solutions procedures are not unique, may be of some inspiration for the students who have just started their studies at the universities.Mon, 7 Nov 2016 15:36:08 -0800Real Functions in One Variable
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1247170
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.The publisher recently asked me to write an overview of the most common subjects in a first course of Calculus at university level. I have been very pleased by this request, although the task has been far from easy.Since most students already have their recommended textbook, I decided instead to write this contribution in a totally different style, not bothering too much with rigoristic assumptions and proofs. The purpose was to explain the main ideas and to give some warnings at places where students traditionally make errors.By rereading traditional textbooks from the first course of Calculus I realized that since I was not bound to a strict logical structure of the contents, always thinking of the students’ ability at that particular stage of the text, I could give some additional results which may be useful for the reader. These extra results cannot be given in normal textbooks without violating their general idea. This has actually been great fun to me, and I hope that the reader will find these additions useful. At the same time most of the usual stuff in these initial courses in Calculus has been treated.When emphasizing formulæ I had the choice of putting them into a box, or just give them a number. I have chose the latter, because too many boxes would overwhelm the reader. On the other hand, I had sometimes also to number less important formulæ because there are local references to them. I hope that the reader can distinguish between these two applications of the numbering.In the Appendix I have collected some useful formulæ, which the reader may use for references.It should be emphasized that this is not an ordinary textbook, but instead a supplement to existing ones, hopefully giving some new ideas in how problems in Calculus can be solved.It is impossible to avoid errors in any book, so even if I have done my best to correct them, I would not dare to claim that I have got rid of all of them. If the reader unfortunately should use a formula or result which has been wrongly put here (misprint or something missing) I do hope that my sins will be forgiven.Mon, 7 Nov 2016 15:31:31 -0800Real Functions in Several Variables: Volume III Differentiable Functions in Several Variables
