- American Institute of Mathematics: Open Textbooks & CoursesThe AIM provides textbooks and course materials on all levels of math, from elementary algebra to upper level calculus. All books have been evaluated to meet the evaluation criteria of the organization's editorial board.

- OpenStax Pre Algebra 2ePrealgebra is designed to meet scope and sequence requirements for a one-semester prealgebra course. The book’s organization makes it easy to adapt to a variety of course syllabi. The text introduces the fundamental concepts of algebra while addressing the needs of students with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Used in MAT 080.

From the instructor:

1) The students were AMAZED that they did not have to purchase a book.

2) The first two weeks of a MAT080 class are rough for the students since they have to get used to completing homework assignments, and get used to all of their classes. I have NEVER had an entire class complete the first homework assignment. This class of 18 students did. Every single student turned in their homework assignment on time, and I have to believe that it's because they didn't have to purchase a book or wait for their book. They were able to access their book as soon as they left their classroom.

AMAZING!!! - OpenStax Elementary Algebra 2eElementary Algebra is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of a one-semester elementary algebra course. The book’s organization makes it easy to adapt to a variety of course syllabi. The text expands on the fundamental concepts of algebra while addressing the needs of students with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Used in MAT 090.
- OpenStax Intermediate Algebra 2eIntermediate Algebra 2e is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of a one-semester intermediate algebra course. The book’s organization makes it easy to adapt to a variety of course syllabi. The text expands on the fundamental concepts of algebra while addressing the needs of students with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. The material is presented as a sequence of clear steps, building on concepts presented in prealgebra and elementary algebra courses. Used in MAT 108.
- OpenStax Pre CalculusPrecalculus is adaptable and designed to fit the needs of a variety of precalculus courses. It is a comprehensive text that covers more ground than a typical one- or two-semester college-level precalculus course. The content is organized by clearly-defined learning objectives and includes worked examples that demonstrate problem-solving approaches in an accessible way." Used in MAT142.
- OpenStax Introductory StatisticsIntroductory Statistics follows scope and sequence requirements of a one-semester introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Introductory Statistics includes innovative practical applications that make the text relevant and accessible, as well as collaborative exercises, technology integration problems, and statistics labs. Used in MAT165.
- Statistics with Technology 2eStatistics With Technology, Second Edition, is an introductory statistics textbook. It uses the TI-83/84 calculator and R, an open source statistical software, for all calculations. Other technology can also be used besides the TI-83/84 calculator and the software R, but these are the ones that are presented in the text. This book presents probability and statistics from a more conceptual approach, and focuses less on computation. Analysis and interpretation of data is more important than how to compute basic statistical values. Used in MAT 161.
- OpenStax Calculus Vol 1Calculus is designed for the typical two- or three-semester general calculus course, incorporating innovative features to enhance student learning. The book guides students through the core concepts of calculus and helps them understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, we are offering the book in three volumes for flexibility and efficiency. Volume 1 covers functions, limits, derivatives, and integration. Used in MAT 201.
- OpenStax Calculus Vol 2Volume 2 covers integration, differential equations, sequences and series, and parametric equations and polar coordinates. Used in MAT 202.
- OpenStax Calculus Vol 3Volume 3 covers parametric equations and polar coordinates, vectors, functions of several variables, multiple integration, and second-order differential equations.

Note: OpenStax is part of Rice University and has adapted and updated the best practices of traditional publishing to create and deliver high-quality, peer-reviewed textbooks. Many titles include assessments, PowerPoint slides, assignments and Blackboard packages and more shared faculty resources in the OER Commons Hubs.
