AMSER (the Applied Math and Science Education Repository) provides educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use.en-usealmasy@scout.wisc.eduealmasy@scout.wisc.eduSun, 20 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0500http://www.rssboard.org/rss-2-0-1Calculus Open Textbook
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=25805
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=25805This free calculus textbook from Boundless Learning is based off openly available educational resources such as "government resources, open educational repositories, and other openly licensed websites." The textbook contains 5 chapters such as Building Blocks of Calculus, Derivatives and Integrals, and Inverse Functions and Advanced Integration. The textbook can be browsed on this page or downloaded as a pdf. Students can register for a free Boundless account to access a search engine and other study tools to efficiently find specific topics and master the content.Mon, 3 Mar 2014 16:15:25 -0600Calculus with Applications
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16228
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16228This course, presented by MIT and taught by Daniel Kleitman, provides undergraduate level calculus instruction. The materials include a set of interactive Java applets, a glossary of calculus terminology and full lecture notes. The course covers differential calculus in one and several dimensions and is intended as a one and a half term course for students who have had some calculus in high school, but it is designed to be easy to follow for those without a background in calculus. MIT presents OpenCourseWare as free educational material online. No registration or enrollment is required to use the materials.Mon, 13 Dec 2010 03:00:02 -0600Differential Equations
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16230
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16230This course, presented by MIT and taught by Professors Haynes Miller and Arthur Mattuck, provides undergraduate level calculus instruction. Focusing on differential equations, the materials include video lectures, lecture notes, exams and assignments (with solutions). MIT presents OpenCourseWare as free educational material online. No registration or enrollment is required to use the materials.Thu, 9 Dec 2010 03:00:03 -0600Radioactive Wastes
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13761
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13761Created by David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, this module develops multiple representations for decay of radioactive substances, in the context of environmental policies on a university campus, and discusses storage times for wastes to decay to safe levels for disposal. This is one of a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Thu, 29 Apr 2010 03:00:01 -0500Connected Curriculum Project: Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations

Each module on the Web matches a section in the book.Thu, 2 Aug 2007 03:00:02 -0500Calculus.org: The Calculus Page
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4127
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4127The Calculus Page is operated by the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Davis. Although it gives links to many other online calculus resources, the site has excellent material of its own that is useful for both students and instructors. High school and college students taking beginning and intermediate level calculus will find problem sets with solutions and sample exams. There are also animations that demonstrate several fundamental concepts, as well as humorous excerpts from a recently published calculus book. For instructors, there are numerous demonstrations and experiments described on the site that will keep students interested.Sat, 21 Jul 2007 03:00:02 -0500Homepage of e-Calculus
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=3336
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=3336A mathematics professor from the University of Akron has made available this online tutorial covering many of the topics of a typical first semester of calculus. Beginning with a general overview of continuous functions and fundamental operations, the tutorial progresses to limits, differentiation, and integration. Since the material is so extensive, it is divided into several documents that can be easily navigated using the hyperlinks scattered throughout the text. One shortcoming of the tutorial is its lack of illustrative figures and diagrams; however, equations are clearly shown with adequate explanation. Also provided via a link on the site is the Algebra Review in Ten Lessons.Wed, 16 May 2007 03:00:01 -0500ZweigMedia Finite Mathematics & Applied Calculus
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=623
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=623Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble of Hofstra University's Department of Mathematics (mentioned in the February 14, 1997 Scout Report) provide the Finite Mathematics & Applied Calculus Resource Website as a parallel resource for their textbook on these subjects. This excellent resource offers a plethora of opportunities for the user to enhance his or her mathematical skills. Sections included at the site are Simplex Method Tool, Matrix Algebra Tool, Markov System in Action, and On-Line Numerical Integration, among others. Each section discusses the subject as it relates to Finite Mathematics Applied to the Real World, Calculus Applied to the Real World, and Finite Mathematics & Calculus Applied to the Real World. A highlight of the site is the On-line Interactive Tutorials section. Each tutorial (Algebra, Finite Mathematics, and Calculus) section provides a brief summary of the discussed topic along with a review exercise and true/false quizzes. This site is well worth a visit.Tue, 1 Nov 2005 08:14:16 -0600
