https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=906213
'Students will identify a direct variation, solve linear equations, and create tables based on the exercise equipment provided for astronauts on long duration missions on the International Space Station (ISS) in order to maintain their fitness to perform mission objectives and to return to Earth without serious health complications. Students willidentify direct variation from ordered pairs by calculating the constant of variation;calculate slope from two points using the slope formula;determine independent and dependent variables;solve linear equations; andcreate tables.'Links are provided here for both the teacher's information and the students' information.Tue, 4 Nov 2014 17:58:00 -0800Differential Equations

״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.״ Fri, 10 Jun 2011 11:53:50 -0700GeoGebra

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=859871
This lesson received an honorable mention for the 2011 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.'Differential equations show up in many areas of science and technology. In fact, they turn up any time there is a relation involving some continuously varying quantities and ther rates of change. We have actually dealt with differntial equations before. A common modeling problem involving differential equations is the determination of the velocity of a ball falling which has an acceleration which is the acceleration due to gravity minus the acceleration due to air resistance. This is a differential equation because the derivative of the velocity of the ball depends on the velocity, thus finding the velocity as a function of time involves.' solving a differential equation.'In this section we willExamine the basic form of differential equationsVerify solutions to differential equationsDetermine slope fields for differential equationsFind solutions to differential equations numerically using Euler's methodFind solutions to differential equations using seperation of variables.'Thu, 8 May 2014 17:43:07 -0700California State University - Mathematics Education Community Portal

'The Mathematics Education Community in the CSU is a community of members-CSU faculty, K-12 Mathematics Teachers throughout California, K-12 Administrators, interested Legislators and of particular importance Preservice through Induction year mathematics teachers including undergraduate and credential students and those in their first three years of teaching mathematics.The Mathematics Education Community in the CSU is based upon the concept of a “teaching commons” whereby the community of California’s K-12 Mathematics Teachers and university Mathematics Teacher Educators advance and promote the scholarship of teaching and learning mathematics through sharing of ideas, practices, and information, and resources.'Tue, 8 Jul 2014 11:11:42 -0700WeBWorK
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=906153
'WeBWorK is an open-source online homework system for math and science courses. WeBWorK is supported by the MAA and the NSF and comes with a National Problem Library (NPL) of over 20,000 homework problems. Problems in the NPL target most lower division undergraduate math courses and some advanced courses. Supported courses include college algebra, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics, single and multivariable calculus, differential equations, linear algebra and complex analysis.WeBWorK is used successfully at over 700 colleges and universities from large research institutions to small teaching colleges. WeBWorK has been developed and maintained by mathematicians since 1994 always with the goal of providing the mathematical community with the most robust, flexible, and mathematically capable online homework system possible.WeBWorK is open-source and freely available for download. There is no cost to departments or institutions who wish to host their own WeBWorK server, and the WeBWorK community has always provided prompt technical and pedagogical support through active and friendly discussion forums and mailing lists.Additionally, the MAA will host WeBWorK courses on a limited basis for departments or institutions who are not in a position to host their own WeBWorK installation.'Tue, 4 Nov 2014 13:35:07 -0800Algebra Review

'The following mathlets are designed for the students in my geometry classes to review basic algebra skills in such a way that they can check their answers and/or get hints as to how to proceed.The idea behind these "procedure-based" dynamic worksheets is to provide students the opportunity to review and practice algebra skills with problems they create, while at the same time providing a means for students to check their answers and to get a hint if needed. The hints will walk the student through the problem in a step by step manner.'Tue, 4 Nov 2014 09:43:36 -0800Calculus 3
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=556372
This website can serve as an instructor's free e-textbook/guide for teaching Calculus III as well as a student's free etextbook. The author has organized his online notes for his Calculus III course that he teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are his “class notes”, they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus III or needing a refresher in some of the topics from the class.These notes do assume that the reader has a good working knowledge of Calculus I topics including limits, derivatives and integration. It also assumes that the reader has a good knowledge of several Calculus II topics including some integration techniques, parametric equations, vectors, and knowledge of three dimensional space."

This lesson received an honorable mention in the 2012 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.'In this lesson we begin to examine what happens when we have a list of numbers, known as a sequence. We will determine when these lists of numbers, or sequences, have a pattern, when we can generalize that pattern to find any term and what it looks like if we sum up the numbers in the sequence. Let's start off with a few definitions and some terminology and from there we will see how we can determine their behavior.'Thu, 8 May 2014 16:41:36 -0700
