California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom Lesson Plans
California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom Our mission is to increase awareness and understanding of agriculture among California's educators and students. Our vision is an appreciation of agriculture by all. Agriculture is the very basis of civilization—the food we eat, the clothing we wear, the material of our homes and many of our traditions and values…all coming from agriculture and collectively setting the pace for a nation's standard of living. As generations of Americ
Stochastic Evolution Equati

Topics covered include: Random variables in Banach spaces: Gaussian random variables, contraction principles, Kahane-Khintchine inequality, Anderson’s inequality. Stochastic integration in Banach spaces I: γ-Radonifying operators, γ-boundedness, Brownian motion, Wiener stochastic integral. Stochastic evolution equations I: Linear stochastic evolution equations: e
Directory of Open Access Journals
Directory of Open Access Journals. This service covers free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals. We aim to cover all subjects and languages. There are now 1964 journals in the directory. Currently 482 journals are searchable at article level. As of today 81975 articles are included in the DOAJ service.

Student-authored multimedia tutorials that cover a variety of study skills topics (e.g., time management, essay writing, note-taking, textbook reading)
This is a project to develop a document for teaching graduate econometrics that is "open source", specifically, licensed as GNU GPL. That is, anyone can access the document in editable form, and can modify it, as long as they make their modifications available. This allows for personalization, as well as a simple way to make contributions and error corrections. The hope is that people preparing to teach econometrics for the first time might find it useful, and eventually be motivated to contribu
Crash Scene Investigation Activities

Yet Another Calculus Text
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. The reader interested in questions of foundations should consult books such as Abraham Robinson's Non-standard Analysis or Robert Goldblatt's Lectures on the Hyperreals. Secondly, I have aime
The Calculus of Functions of Several Variables
This books covers the following topics: Geometry of Rn; functions from R to Rn; functions from Rn to R; functions from Rm to Rn.
Peirce's Alternative Achilles Paradox
A discussion of an alternative version of one of Zeno's paradoxes, and its connection to the nature of the continuum and the existence of infinitesimals. (Unpublished paper)
Peirce And Fisher on the Place of Probability in Abductive Inference
In his analysis of inference into three types, deduction, induction, and abduction, C. S. Peirce maintains that probability plays an essential role in the first two, but not in the third. For a deductive argument, probability tells us the frequency with which the conclusion will hold given the premises; for an inductive argument, probability tells us the frequency with which the argument will hold true. However, probability has no role to play in abduction because there is, in Peirce's view, no
HippoCampus is a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE). The goal of HippoCampus is to provide high-quality, multimedia content on general education subjects to high school and college students free of charge. HippoCampus was designed as part of Open Education Resources (OER), a worldwide effort to improve access to quality education for everyone.
