Jonathan Poritz, math & computer science, Colorado State University-Pueblo
Hey, folks, happy to be here.
I’ve written a couple of open textbooks (one on number theory and cryptology for junior-level math majors, the other a one-semester intro to stats mostly for nursing majors and other non-math students who have a stats requirement) and used several in my classes.
A little while ago, I realized that I don’t ever again want to assign non-open educational resources (maybe “¬OERs”?) in my classes.
So I’m happy to join this community to learn about new projects happening now, and also to contribute to any for which I might be useful – e.g., if anyone needs a section with math or computers or something, I’m happy to jump in.
Hi Jonathan, thanks so much for joining and welcome! We’d love to hear about your experiences creating these textbooks. We don’t have any math/computer OT projects just yet, but will definitely notify you when we do.
