Course Communities in Undergraduate Mathematics
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Course Communities in Undergraduate Mathematics is a collection of online resources for undergraduate mathematics courses. The courses done so far are one-variable calculus, multivariable calculus, and ordinary differential equations. These resources were assembled and cataloged by separate working groups for each course. In addition there is a pseudo-course, developmental mathematics, obtained from Tom Carey's project of the same name. A working group is currently identifying and cataloging resources for a course in probability.
