Activity Sheets, tightly aligned with the OpenStax College Algebra text, and designed for use in class as part of an active lecture. During the 2020-2021 pandemic, the activity sheets were used successfully in both group and individual settings in hybrid and fully online learning environmentsThis resource includes activities formatted both as accessible Word documents, for ease of use under the CC-BY 4.0 license, and in pdf form to preserve historically the intended appearance on the page.These activity sheets align tightly with the OpenStax College Algebra textbook and an available MyOpenMath Course called the College Algebra Western MD Consortium (MOST), an inter-institutional effort comprised of mathematics faculty, instructional designers, and libriarians from Frostburg State University, Allegany College of Maryland, and Garrett College.
Includes an attached common course cartdridge for an Introduction to Statistics for Psychology course adapted by Paul C. Bernhardt, Ph.D. for a PSYC 301 course at Frostburg State University. The course is an adaptation of Learning Statistics with jamovi, A Tutorial for Psychology Students and Other Beginners (Navarro & Foxcraft, 2019) and a free and open-source statistical analysis package named jamovi (www.jamovi.org).
A course containing formative and summative assessments, guided reading notes, and in-class active-learning activities tightly aligned with OpenStax College Algebra with trigonometric topics from the OpenStax Algebra with Trigonometry textbook. Ancillary materials are available for download from OER Commons (See Note to Instructors within course) include active-learning worksheets and guided reading note assignments.Topics covered support transferability of College Algebra from two-year to four-year institutions within the University System of Maryland, including verbal, tabular, graphical, and algebraic representations of the functions of college algebra (linear, power/polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric), operations and characteristics of functions, transformations, and systems of linear and nonlinear functions. Prerequisite topics and a review of intermediate algebra are included with assessment but without ancillary materials. This course is suitable for flipped classrooms as well as active-learning environments or may be used without the activity sheets for hybrid or online delivery. It has been used successfully with instructor-created lecture videos (not included) for intense 3 to 6 week online sessions.Provided by the Western Maryland OER Collaboration, an interinstitutional team supported by the Maryland Open Source Textbook Initiative (M.O.S.T.).
The attached Word file contains a survey administered to Deborah Devlin's Frostburg State University College Algebra students. The course used Open Educational Resources (OER) including a free of cost textbook, homework manager, and class activities. The survey was administered at the end of either the final in-term test or the final exam, in person, on paper.
