Driving Awareness, Adoptions, and Affordability
Writing these textbooks was quite the effort! It is nice to be done... Elementary and Intermediate Algebra both have been published by Flat World Knowledge
Elementary Algebra is an open textbook designed to be used in the first part of a two part algebra course. It is written in a clear and concise manner, making no assumption of prior algebra experience. It carefully guides students from the basics to the more advanced techniques required to be successful in the next course.
Intermediate Algebra offers plenty of review as well as something new to engage the student in each chapter. Written as a blend of the traditional and graphical approaches to the subject, this textbook introduces functions early and stresses the geometry behind the algebra. In addition to the creative commons license and FWK features, this textbook offers a true pedagogical improvement over the current very expensive options.

Often students do not know what key words to search for when stuck on an algebra problem. I have created a page where students will be able to visually search a list of examples. Scroll down and click on a problem you are interested in and you will be redirected to a video solution on YouTube.

Instead of waiting for the option to "share" my Elementary Algebra blackboard course, I just copied and pasted the content over to blogger. Google docs makes for easy sharing of course pdf material. I am not quite finished yet but here is my first attempt:
I will update this post when I am finished.

I am trying to build a circle of educators interested in education technology and open educational resources. If you add me to a circle I will circle you back as soon as I can.
If you are just starting out with Google+ it may seem like a ghost town at first. I suggest searching for "shared education circles" and adding a shared circle or two…Continue
