Short Description: An open textbook created to improve both teaching and learning vital concepts and techniques in multivariable calculus, one of the fundamental courses across the undergraduate curriculum in science and engineering. The goals of this resource are to help learners develop their geometric intuition about abstract and complex mathematical concepts (e.g., partial derivatives, multiple integrals, vector fields), and train them to make connections between concepts visually (e.g., connecting “vectors” in mathematics with “magnitude” and “direction” in physics) in order to more fully understand engineering, physics and mathematical problems (e.g., differential equations) in their subsequent STEM coursework.

APEX Calculus is a calculus textbook written for traditional college/university calculus courses. It has the look and feel of the calculus book you likely use right now (Stewart, Thomas & Finney, etc.). The explanations of new concepts is clear, written for someone who does not yet know calculus. Each section ends with an exercise set with ample problems to practice & test skills (odd answers are in the back).

Active Calculus is different from most existing calculus texts in at least the following ways: the text is free for download by students and instructors in .pdf format; in the electronic format, graphics are in full color and there are live html links to java applets; the text is open source, and interested instructors can gain access to the original source files upon request; the style of the text requires students to be active learners — there are very few worked examples in the text, with there instead being 3-4 activities per section that engage students in connecting ideas, solving problems, and developing understanding of key calculus concepts; each section begins with motivating questions, a brief introduction, and a preview activity, all of which are designed to be read and completed prior to class; the exercises are few in number and challenging in nature.

The text is mostly an adaptation of two other excellent open- source calculus textbooks: Active Calculus by Dr. Matt Boelkins of Grand Valley State University and Drs. Gregory Hartman, Brian Heinold, Troy Siemers, Dimplekumar Chalishajar, and Jennifer Bowen of the Virginia Military Institute and Mount Saint Mary's University. Both of these texts can be found at http://aimath.org/textbooks/approved-textbooks/. The authors of this text have combined sections, examples, and exercises from the above two texts along with some of their own content to generate this text. The impetus for the creation of this text was to adopt an open-source textbook for Calculus while maintaining the typical schedule and content of the calculus sequence at our home institution.

Short Description: Welcome to the OER companion to Baylor University's Math 1121: The Calculus Supplement Course, an optional, co-requisite course for students enrolled in Calculus 1. This OER was designed to provide 'just in time' support for the algebraic, trigonometric, and geometric relationships undergirding Calculus 1.

Long Description: Welcome to the OER companion for Baylor University’s Math 1121: The Calculus Supplement Course! Math 1121 is an optional, co-requisite course for students enrolled in Calculus 1. This OER was designed to provide ‘just in time’ support for the algebraic, trigonometric, and geometric relationships undergirding Calculus 1. The topics and content were deliberately sequenced to coincide with the topics and content Calculus 1 students engage as they study limits, derivatives, applications of derivatives, and integration. Therefore, this text first reviews the essential functions from Pre-Calculus that students need to be successful in Calculus 1. Then, it examines the properties and algebraic transformations of those functions and reinforces strategies for analyzing functions. Finally, it bolsters the relationships between algebra and geometry that the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and integrals bring together for Calculus 1 students. Although this OER was designed to support Calculus 1 students, there is almost no Calculus within these ‘pages.’ Rather, the focus is on everything that happens in a Calculus problem after that first Calculus step. Enjoy!

This short text is designed more for self-study or review than for classroom use; full solutions are given for nearly all the end-of-chapter problems. For a more traditional text designed for classroom use, see Fundamentals of Calculus (http://www.lightandmatter.com/fund/). The focus is mainly on integration and differentiation of functions of a single variable, although iterated integrals are discussed. Infinitesimals are used when appropriate, and are treated more rigorously than in old books like Thompson's Calculus Made Easy, but in less detail than in Keisler's Elementary Calculus: An Approach Using Infinitesimals. Numerical examples are given using the open-source computer algebra system Yacas, and Yacas is also used sometimes to cut down on the drudgery of symbolic techniques such as partial fractions. Proofs are given for all important results, but are often relegated to the back of the book, and the emphasis is on teaching the techniques of calculus rather than on abstract results.

This course provides an introduction to applied concepts in Calculus that are relevant to the managerial, life, and social sciences. Students should have a firm grasp of the concept of functions to succeed in this course. Topics covered include derivatives of basic functions and how they can be used to optimize quantities such as profit and revenues, as well as integrals of basic functions and how they can be used to describe the total change in a quantity over time.

MATH&148 is a calculus course for business students. It is designed for students who want a brief course in calculus. Topics include differential and integral calculus of elementary functions. Problems emphasize business and social science applications. Translating words into mathematics and solving word problems are emphasized over algebra. Applications are mainly business oriented (e.g. cost, revenue, and profit). Mathematical theory and complex algebraic manipulations are not mainstays of this course, which is designed to be less rigorous than the calculus sequence for scientists and engineers. Topics are presented according to the rule of four: geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. That is, symbolic manipulation must be balanced with graphical interpretation, numerical examples, and writing. Trigonometry is not part of the course.

This is an online textbook for a one semester calculus course aimed at business students. The material covered is fairly standard: differentiation and integration without trigonometry, partial derivatives and optimization of functions of several variables. There are several characteristics that differentiate the text from other texts: Excel is used as the main computational engine throughout the text and the needed Excel skills are taught rather than assumed. Examples, exercises, and vocabulary are tailored to uses in a business curriculum. There is a modeling thread throughout the text. Webwork versions of exercises are available on request.
