We have made some major changes to the textbooks for this course. In the past students had to purchase two textbooks, but the costs of textbooks keep rising and the decision was made to convert this to Open Educational Resources (OER) which means you will not have to pay for the textbooks for this course. They are available to you as downloads. You can read online or print out PDFs. Your choice.
Converting this course to OER required substantial modification and we need your help. There will be bugs crop up as we progress through this course. Anytime you find something worded wrong, links not working, typos, etc. PLEASE let us know so we can make corrections. Converting courses to low cost or free textbooks is a daunting task for any university, but this is just one step in making education more affordable and we feel it is worth the effort. Toward the end of this course, we will ask for your thoughts and suggestions so be thinking of ways to improve how we deliver the course content.
