This textbook is an adaptation of the Saylor Introduction to Chemistry book customized for CH 104 at Central Oregon Community College. Low-cost print available: http://www.lulu.com/shop/forrest-towne/introduction-to-chemistry/paperback/product-24034383.html

Upon completing this course students will:

Interpret the periodic table to describe elements of atomic structure for the elements and to make predictions about properties based on the position of elements on the table.
Apply atomic theory in describing atomic structure, making predictions about bonding and compound formation, and interpreting chemical reactions.
Construct and interpret Lewis structures as models for ionic and covalent compounds.
Describe ionic and covalent bonding and distinguish between the two, including descriptions of substances of each type at the observable scale.
Solve problems using dimensional analysis involving chemical substances and reactions, drawing on understanding of the mole concept, formula masses and reaction stoichiometry.
Read, write, and interpret balanced chemical equations, using proper equation syntax and standard symbolism to link such descriptions to phenomena that occur at the observable scale.
Interpret and carry out a set of written experimental instructions and then to convey the experimental results in a laboratory report.
Apply kinetic-molecular theory to describe solids, liquids, and gases.
Recognize acids and describe acidity according to the Bronsted-Lowry definition.
Use scientific (inductive) reasoning to draw appropriate conclusions from data sets or theoretical models. Characterize arguments as scientific, or not scientific.
Make measurements and operate with numbers properly to convey appropriate levels of certainty when drawing conclusions from experimental data. Identify patterns in data by graphical means.

We believe that calculus can be for students what it was for Euler and the Bernoullis: a language and a tool for exploring the whole fabric of science. We also believe that much of the mathematical depth and vitality of calculus lies in connections to other sciences. The mathematical questions that arise are compelling in part because the answers matter to other disciplines. We began our work with a "clean slate," not by asking what parts of the traditional course to include or discard. Our starting points are thus our summary of what calculus is really about. Our curricular goals are what we aim to convey about the subject in the course. Our functional goals describe the attitudes and behaviors we hope our students will adopt in using calculus to approach scientific and mathematical questions.

Continuous-Time Signals and Systems (Textbook, Solutions Manual, Lecture Slides, and Video Lectures)
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND

TEXTBOOK ABSTRACT:

This book is intended for use in teaching undergraduate courses on continuous-time signals and systems in engineering (and related) disciplines. It has been used for several years for teaching purposes in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Victoria and has been very well received by students. It has also been used to teach courses at numerous other universities, including Memorial University (NL, Canada) and Concordia University (QC, Canada).

This book provides a detailed introduction to continuous-time signals and systems, with a focus on both theory and applications. The mathematics underlying signals and systems is presented, including topics such as: properties of signals, properties of systems, convolution, Fourier series, the Fourier transform, frequency spectra, and the bilateral and unilateral Laplace transforms. Applications of the theory are also explored, including: filtering, equalization, amplitude modulation, sampling, feedback control systems, circuit analysis, and Laplace-domain techniques for solving differential equations. Other supplemental material is also included, such as: a detailed introduction to MATLAB, a review of complex analysis, and an exploration of time-domain techniques for solving differential equations. Throughout the book, many worked-through examples are provided. Problem sets are also provided for each major topic covered.

Electromagnetics, Volume 1

CC BY-SA
Rating
5.0 stars

Electromagnetics Volume 1 by Steven W. Ellingson is a 225-page, peer-reviewed open educational resource intended for electrical engineering students in the third year of a bachelor of science degree program. It is intended as a primary textbook for a one-semester first course in undergraduate engineering electromagnetics. The book employs the “transmission lines first” approach in which transmission lines are introduced using a lumped-element equivalent circuit model for a differential length of transmission line, leading to one-dimensional wage equations for voltage and current.

Grenzenlos Deutsch – an open-access curriculum for beginning German
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
2.66666666667 stars

Grenzenlos Deutsch is a no-cost alternative to textbooks. We seek to represent a breadth of perspectives that will enable our students to talk about their own lives; thus we have designed content that is actively feminist, anti-racist, anti-classist, anti-ableist, LGBTQIA+ friendly and represents a spectrum of experience.

For each of the thematic modules, there are three units of increasing complexity. Each unit has approximately six lessons, and each lesson has an Erweiterung, which includes additional activities to recap and solidify activities in the main lesson; they were designed to be used as homework or in additional hours (for example, in a lab or conversation session).

Visit https://grenzenlos-deutsch.com/ for the full curriculum.

Grenzenlos Deutsch (GD) is:

Interactive: The activities are intended to give you opportunities to practice some of the skills you’ll be learning along the way.
Cultural: Each lesson includes readings and/or video that relates to some aspect of DACHL culture (D- Germany; A- Austria; CH- Switzerland; L-Liechtenstein).
Inclusive: One of our goals is to make it possible for you to talk about yourself and your life in German, and thus we introduce basic language for talking about LGBTQIA+ identities, complex family structures, and lifestyle choices such as veganism, vegetarianism, and intentional communities.
OER: Grenzenlos Deutsch is an Open Educational Resource. This means that all of the content, including photos and videos, can be used, reused, and shared with attribution given to Grenzenlos Deutsch. Licensed CC-BY-NC-SA: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/

U.S. History is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of most introductory courses. The text provides a balanced approach to U.S. history, considering the people, events, and ideas that have shaped the United States from both the top down (politics, economics, diplomacy) and bottom up (eyewitness accounts, lived experience). U.S. History covers key forces that form the American experience, with particular attention to issues of race, class, and gender.Corbett, P.

How to be a journalist in the 21st century.pdf
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This textbook is an introduction to journalism, in the African and South African context, written for digital natives. The textbook is unique in the sense that students and the lecturer wrote it together, it is therefore a resource that focuses on learning through the eyes of students in Africa and the things they would like to learn to become journalists. The writers are Andre Gouws, lecturer in journalism at North-West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa, and his first-year and second-year students from 2021.

The purpose of this open textbook is to provide a general introduction to journalism in the 21st century to both journalism students and anyone who, perhaps unknowingly, create their own types of journalism. These new types of journalists include bloggers, entrepreneurial journalists, social media users, newsletter writers, and YouTube and TikTok creators, among others. In the digital era, journalism skills are valuable skills to anyone who creates or distributes news or information. Journalism skills include an understanding of news, the context of the media, legal and ethical issues around creating and distributing all types of content, and practical skills. This textbook contains ideas to help prospective independent journalists with journalistic entrepreneurship. Scholars agree that journalism can be defined very broadly today. It is no longer something that only trained journalists do. Knowing and understanding journalism will help everyone to tell better stories; to perhaps earn an independent income; and, importantly, to do it an ethical and compassionate way.
