Description:

This is the online, interactive version of OpenIntro's Advanced High School Statistics (https://www.openintro.org/book/ahss/). It was developed by Emiliano Vega and Ralf Youtz of Portland Community College using PreTeXt.

Advanced High School Statistics covers a first course in statistics, providing an introduction to applied statistics that is clear, concise, and accessible. This book was written to align with the AP© Statistics Course Description, but it's also popular in non-AP courses and community colleges.

We hope readers will take away three ideas from this book in addition to forming a foundation of statistical thinking and methods:

1. Statistics is an applied field with a wide range of practical applications.

2. You don't have to be a math guru to learn from real, interesting data.

3. Data are messy, and statistical tools are imperfect. But, when you understand the strengths and weaknesses of these tools, you can use them to learn about the real world.

It is our hope that the successful student who completes a class using all or some of this text will have improved skills with application inside the discipline of philosophy, but also with application to work in other disciplines within academia. Our ultimate goal, however, is to help people develop techniques which support curiosity, open-mindedness, and an ability to collaborate successfully with others, across differences of experiences and background. Our dream is to help people “put their heads together.”

MTH 256 Supplement to Judson's “The Ordinary Differential Equations Project”
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

MTH 256 at Portland Community College includes a variety of differential equations and their solutions, with emphasis on applied problems in engineering and physics. Uses differential equations software. Students communicate results in oral and written form. Graphing and Computer Algebra System (CAS) technology are used, such as Desmos and/or GeoGebra which are available at no cost. This is a one-term introduction to ordinary differential equations with applications. Topics include classification of, and what is meant by the solution of a differential equation, first-order equations for which exact solutions are obtainable, explicit methods of solving higher-order linear differential equations, an introduction to systems of differential equations, and the Laplace transform. Applications of first-order linear differential equations and second-order linear differential equations with constant coefficients will be studied.

With this supplement, we are adding to the work of Thomas Judson's “The Ordinary Differential Equations Project” by providing additional practice problems that mostly focus on applications. We worked with the 2022 edition 2  of The Ordinary Differential Equations Project 3 .

In sections 2.2, 2.4, 3.2, 3.3, and 3.4, we utilize the work and ideas of Steven Strogatz in his paper titled “Love Affairs and Differential Equations” 4 , Published in the February 1988 edition of Mathematics Magazine. This paper and several others expanding these ideas can be found by googling “Romeo and Juliet differential equations”.
