These slides contain tables, illustrations and text and are suitable for use in face-to-face, hybrid and online classes. They contain extensive text and could be utilized as instructor notes as well. The Concepts of Biology book can be downloaded on the following website: https://openstax.org/.
The biology material in these PowerPoint presentations comes from an OER (Open Education Resource) textbook. The textbook is Concepts of Biology, by Rice University. The textbook can be found on the following website under the subject of science: https://openstax.org/
These are the same PowerPoints as the Concepts of Biology textbook PowerPoints, but saved in the PDF format, which is often used for online and hybrid courses. They cannot be modified. If you need to modify the PowerPoints, use the Concepts of Biology textbook PowerPoints version, modify them, and re-save them as a PDF.

The outline of this study guide follows Chang’s General Chemistry, The Essential Concepts textbook. Chapter 11 Introduction to Organic Chemistry, Chapter 20 The Chemistry of Coordination Compounds and Chapter 22 Organic Polymers - Synthetic and Natural are not covered. The locations of each topic in OpenStax and Brown’s textbooks are given under the titles. The materials, mainly the figures and the questions, are adapted from wikipedia, OpenStax, and other open source resources.
The principles of genetics with application to the study of biological function at the level of molecules, cells, and multicellular organisms, including humans. Structure and function of genes, chromosomes and genomes. Biological variation resulting from recombination, mutation, and selection. Population genetics. Use of genetic methods to analyze protein function, gene regulation and inherited disease.
This Instructor’s Guide contains the brief outlines of Chapters 12-21 as found in Concepts of Biology, though some underwent revision. Also, instructors will find detailed outlines of the text for use in lecturing, as well as structured outlines that may be used by students to take notes while reading the chapter or during lecture. All outlines are derived from the OpenStax text. Additionally, study guides that contain a variety of questions are provided for students.
The Republic of Plato is one of the classic gateway texts into the study and practice of philosophy, and it is just the sort of book that has been able to arrest and redirect lives. How it has been able to do this, and whether or not it will be able to do this in your own case, is something you can only discover for yourself. The present guidebook aims to help a person get fairly deep, fairly quickly, into the project. It divides the dialogue into 96 sections and provides commentary on each section as well as questions for reflection and exploration. It is organized with a table of contents and is stitched together with a system of navigating bookmarks. Links to external sites such as the Perseus Classical Library are used throughout. This book is suitable for college courses or independent study.
Do you want to learn the basics of how to use Microsoft word? This web site offers easy to understand video lessons. In addition to the audio lessons, the site offers supplement materials.
The slideshows that go with OpenStax Astronomy are PowerPoint, which is great for editing and improving, but a bit awkward for instructors who need to load MS PowerPoint in order to present. I used the cc-by license to place them on Wikiversity.
I also invite others to collaborate on developing OpenStax materials on Wikiversity and/or Miraheze.
What is a paradox? More importantly, what is infinity? These concepts can blow one's mind in the best way possible and they are the subject of this course at MIT. Offered up as part of that august institution's Open CourseWare initiative, this semester long course was first offered in spring 2013 by Professor Agustin Rayo. In short, the course "explores different kinds of infinity; the paradoxes of set theory; the reduction of arithmetic to logic˘ďď_." On the site, visitors can download the syllabus, the course calendar, the readings, and look over the lecture slides. The Readings area contains some lovely pieces, including "The Paradoxes of Time Travel" and "The Eleatic Hangover Cure."
