  18. Free book online (~$15 B&W printed)

  19. Video playlist for each chapter

  20. Online and paper exercises

  21. Math 107 Math in Society • Full course shell for a fully online course • Online and paper exercises • Online and paper quizzes • Written assignments / discussion questions

  22. Math 107 Math in Society • Book has been used for 5 years in a fully-online class with good success. • Small (but not significant) increase in average grade. • Students regularly rate the readability of the text very high. • Has been used at Pierce College, Lake WA Tech, Bellingham Tech, American River, and others.

  23. Results Old Blackboard course (‘06-’08 data) 70.2% pass rate, n = 131 WAMAP + Open Text v1 (‘08-’11 data) 72.4% pass rate, n = 236 WAMAP + OCL 2 (’12-’13 data) 80.4% pass rate, n = 92 *No statistically significant difference

  24. Math 107 Math in Society “I was fearful about taking a strictly “on-line” course, especially one dealing with math, since I haven’t taken a math course in over 30 years and the on-line option was very new to me. Your course was so well organized I found it to be incredibly easy to follow. Your clear objectives, requirements, grading system, and quick replies made this one of the most pleasurable classes I have ever experienced. I found the use of videos to supplement the text extremely helpful.” -Tammy Questi, RDH, student in Winter 2013 Math&107 course run in

  25. Precalculus 1 and 2 • Free online book, printed for $15 • Sample syllabus with outcomes • Sample assessments (quizzes and tests) • All materials are available in Word or text format if you want to modify or customize at a section or sentence level

  26. Precalculus 1 and 2 • Instructor guide, detailing the contents • Discussion forums to promote interaction • Additional online resources, including links to other textbooks, video sites, and technology tools

  27. Approach • Focus on the story of functions • Contextual motivation • “Rule of four” integrated throughout • Stepping stone in level of thinking • Integrated circle/triangle trig approach • Distributed approach to trig identities and solving trig equations

  28. Open Textbook

  29. Day by Day guide showing suggested lecture pace, and how handouts, activities, and assessments fit in the course structure

  30. Lecture outlines, with examples

  31. Online algorithmically generated homework for each section, in addition to book homework

  32. Many have video help, thanks to James Sousa

  33. MAA Review by Mike Kenyon, Green River Community College, 10/15/2012 We considered about two dozen texts in our adoption process […] Once the finalists were selected, it became clear that the Lippman/Rasmussen text was equal or superior to the others in quality and far outpaced them in cost. The vote of our full-time faculty was, in fact, unanimous.

  34. MAA Review by Mike Kenyon, Green River Community College, 10/15/2012 The text had a positive effect on the classroom instructional atmosphere from the very beginning. Many students came to class on the first day with a positive attitude borne of having been to the bookstore and found that their textbook would cost $20 rather than over $100, and even spending that much was optional. Moreover, the vast majority of students had the textbook in one form or another from the outset and so didn’t face the prospect of falling behind because they couldn’t get it until a financial aid check came in.

  35. Paige Green, Lecturer, UCLA Everything is going so well with your book and the MyOpenMath component. I am so pleased with the material. […] So far, I find the homework sections so complete and the application problems really give the students a challenge.

  36. Adoption Departmental adoptions at Pierce, Green River, Shoreline, Scottsdale Individual faculty adoptions at Edmonds, Seattle Central, UCLA, and many others Over 5000 books printed

  37. Student Success Data 4850 students at Pierce, Green River, and Shoreline have used our text (over the last 2 years), vs. 5000 past students saw no significant difference in success, while saving $300,000+

  38. Contemporary Calculus I, II, and III Dale Hoffman Bellevue College Bellevue, Washington All of the materials Limits to Double Integrals • 300 page text for each course • WAMAP online practice problems (with answers) • Example quizzes and tests • Example syllabus are available free on the web.

  39. Web access Text pages in color on the web

  43. Quality & Student Success • Profession reviews • Student success • Student feedback

  44. Some professional reviews of theContemporary Calculus manuscript from a New York CC Better than any other book I've seen, these problems force students to think about what concepts mean. I am quite favorably impressed with this text. Emphasis on geometrical reasoning.  A Emphasis on meaning and use of concepts.  A Problem sets.  A+ from a Florida university Emphasis on geometric reasoning.  I think this is very important and it is one of the strengths of this manuscript.  A Problem sets.   A Applications for motivation.   A

  45. Stewart/Hoffman Success Comparison Bellevue College used Stewart (2006-07) and Hoffman (2007-08) Five instructors taught multiple sections in 2006-07 using Stewart and then multiple sections in 2007-08 using Hoffman. The student success numbers for these five instructors were virtually identical using each text, but 4 of the 5 had slightly greater student success using Hoffman Stewart N=622 Success = “ABC” = 74.4% Success range: 42 – 90% Hoffman N=710 Success = “ABC” 74.8% Success range: 40 – 95%
