Textbook Affordability - OER

Computer Science

The OERs in the sub-pages ARE NOT a complete list of all CIS OER textbooks and ancillaries available. Instead, they are meant to help guide faculty members who don't want to look for OER materials for their classes, for those who can't find any OERs on their own, for those who are overwhelmed by the huge number of OERs available, and for those who aren't sure about the legality of a source they have found on their own. All sources included here can be used in your classes under various creative common licenses.

If you have any questions about any of this, please email me, Rebecca Goodchild goodchr@scc.losrios.edu.

- A Spiral Workbook for Discrete MathematicsSuny Open Textbook under a CC-BY-NC-SA license. This is a text that covers the standard topics in a sophomore-level course in discrete mathematics: logic, sets, proof techniques, basic number theory, functions, relations, and elementary combinatorics, with an emphasis on motivation.
- Discrete Mathematics: An Open IntroductionLicensed under a CC-BY-SA. This text was written to be used as the primary text for the class Discrete Mathematics (Math 228) at the University of Northern Colorado. The course serves as the role of a transitions course (introduction to proof), as well as an introduction to topics in discrete mathematics.

These ancillary sources are a mixture of tutorials, web based courses, and support websites. All of them are copyrighted, but are freely available online for your use. This means you may direct your students to use them, legally, but you can't mix, edit, or distribute the materials; they are not Open Educational Resources.
