Welcome to abstract algebra, perhaps the pinnacle of your undergraduate mathematical career. To begin our transformative journey, we start by asking a simple question. How can we move a square?
This open textbook is designed for and by undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies students, with a special concentration on rethinking interdisciplinary education in a digital age.
Lecture notes for an introductory programming course in Python (version 3.x). There are many example problems suitable for "flipped" classes. This follows the order of Allen Downey's Think Python text. Some sections are skipped, but the basics are included through inheritance and polymorphism. No prior programming experience is expected.
In this class, we questioned the very parameters of what counts as American literature. Is American literature defined by geographical boundaries? Experiences? Histories? Themes? What is the difference between American literature and American history? Who determines what counts as American literature? How does the in-depth study of early American literature prompt us rethink representations of American culture today? In our global era, it is clear that past definitions of American literature must be revisited. This anthology moves to answer the question “what is American literature?” by framing the texts in new and provocative ways that fit the modern age.
This is a place to gather and reflect on knowledge, and to contribute to the knowledge base by making thoughtful analyses and connections that are relevant to the philosophical and historical perspectives on the child in society.
This document contains health lesson plans on a variety of topics. The content is intended for use by health educators, and the target audience of the materials varies from elementary aged children to older adults.
Each lesson plan has a topic overview, time and format information, Healthy People 2020 Objectives, National Health Education Standards information, learning objectives, key concepts and terms, materials needed, and teaching steps.
This material was developed by Plymouth State University students as a part of their coursework for Promoting Health Across the Lifespan, in fall 2017 with Dr. Barbara McCahan.
Lecture notes for an upper-level undergraduate software engineering course, with a strong focus on software design. Students taking this course should have already completed a data structures course. These notes are designed to be used with Dale Skrien’s text Object Oriented Design using Java.
Welcome to Critical Theory! We know that this field probably seems daunting, but now that you’re here, we’re here to help you get more comfortable with concepts such as ideology, constructivism, and the uncanny, to name a few. This handbook is a student-built guide that explains and exemplifies different literary theories. Written in accessible language with modern-day examples, this handbook seeks to make literary theory more manageable.
This handbook is a blend between a traditional textbook and an experimental anthology. It includes a range of pieces that show students grappling with the concepts themselves. Moreover, it’s free and organized according to the theories presented in the syllabus.
This book is an Open Educational Resource (OER) designed specifically for you, a Plymouth State University student enrolled in the “Tackling a Wicked Problem” course. The book contains material written specifically for it as well as material from other openly licensed material including the OER written by the Fall 2017 First Year Seminar Fellows at Plymouth State University.
Lecture notes for an undergraduate Theory of Computation course. These notes assume some back-ground in discrete math or set theory. The notes deviate from the normal topic order by covering all the machines first, then properties of the language classes, and finally non-inclusion into those classes. Many sections of the notes have yet to be completed.
This text is intended to serve as an IBL style workbook to be used in an undergraduate introductory proof writing course. It covers direct, contrapositive, contradiction, biconditional, existence, uniqueness, induction, and set equality proofs while also covering fundamental topics from number theory, elementary real analysis, functions, and sets with infinite cardinality. It is assumed that the audience has attained a degree of mathematical maturity and has had some exposure to sets and logic, but knowledge of calculus or linear algebra is not required.
