Bart Snapp and Jim Fowler

Affordable Learning Open Impact Grant
Professors Snapp and Fowler head the transformation of a three-semester sequence calculus textbook. The switch to a free, open-source interactive textbook containing content for differential, integral and multi-variable calculus would be adopted by the Department of Mathematics for the courses Math 1151, 1152, 1161.0x, 1172, 2152, 2162.0x, 2173 and 2177. Their goal is to produce this textbook for four sections of Math 1151, four sections of 1152 and three sections of 1152, which together enroll about 2050 students in two semesters. Snapp and Fowler are also open to sharing the textbook with other universities, such as Columbus State Community College, as well as Columbus area high schools.
