Advanced Problems in Mathematics: Preparing for University
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This book is intended to help students prepare for entrance examinations in mathematics and scientific subjects, including STEP (Sixth Term Examination Papers). STEP examinations are used by Cambridge colleges as the basis for conditional offers in mathematics and sometimes in other mathematics-related subjects. They are also used by Warwick University, and many other mathematics departments recommend that their applicants practice on past papers to become accustomed to university-style mathematics.

Biology 2e
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Biology 2e is designed to cover the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester biology course for science majors. The text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. Biology includes rich features that engage students in scientific inquiry, highlight careers in the biological sciences, and offer everyday applications. The book also includes various types of practice and homework questions that help students understand—and apply—key concepts. The 2nd edition has been revised to incorporate clearer, more current, and more dynamic explanations, while maintaining the same organization as the first edition. Art and illustrations have been substantially improved, and the textbook features additional assessments and related resources.

Humanizing Science through STEAM Challenges
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

In a science methods course during the Covid19 pandemic, 51 future elementary teachers authored children's books and then read them aloud as part of a giving-back, service-learning activity as Open Educational Resources (OER). The 51 children's stories and their accompanying audiobooks aim to integrate STEM and the Arts to humanize science and scientific inquiry with history and philosophy of science in mind.

ICT Integration in Biology
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

The process of integrating ICT in education is rarely a simple and linear one - overlaps are often noted, with some elements operating in parallel, in partnership and cyclically. The sequence of steps varies from one activity or situation to the next and must take context into account in order to be effective. The process is thus necessarily incremental and relies on clearly defined objectives to succeed in improving the efficiency of ICT use in education. This document presents major themes to assist educators in better integrating ICT with their teaching, and particularly allowing them to offer higher quality distance education programs to Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics students. An introduction to the theories and principles of ICT integration is presented within six themes, and further developed into seven specific learning objectives, which can be adapted according to the specific subject of the program.

Introduction to the Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems

Rating
0.0 stars

Introduction to the Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems introduces students to mathematical/computational modeling and analysis developed in the emerging interdisciplinary field of Complex Systems Science. Complex systems are systems made of a large number of microscopic components interacting with each other in nontrivial ways. Many real-world systems can be understood as complex systems, where critically important information resides in the relationships between the parts and not necessarily within the parts themselves. This textbook offers an accessible yet technically-oriented introduction to the modeling and analysis of complex systems. The topics covered include: fundamentals of modeling, basics of dynamical systems, discrete-time models, continuous-time models, bifurcations, chaos, cellular automata, continuous field models, static networks, dynamic networks, and agent-based models. Most of these topics are discussed in two chapters, one focusing on computational modeling and the other on mathematical analysis. This unique approach provides a comprehensive view of related concepts and techniques, and allows readers and instructors to flexibly choose relevant materials based on their objectives and needs. Python sample codes are provided for each modeling example.
