Community Calculus (Single, Multivariable)

This online compilation of four calculus textbooks is frequently updated and has been used in courses. It has been positively reviewed by the Mathematical Association of America. It also covers early and late transcendentals.

Includes: exercises, solutions, and WeBWorK problem sets.

APEX Calculus

This text, or portions of it, has been adopted at a considerable number of American institutions to teach calculus, according to their website. These institutions include the Virginia Military Institute, where the author is an associate professor of mathematics.

Includes: interactive graphics, exercises and solutions.

Contemporary Calculus

This textbook was created as part of the Washington State Colleges’ Open Course Library Project, which received funding through the Gates Foundation. This text has been used by thousands of students within Washington State and was developed by a professor at Bellevue College.

Includes: exercises, solutions to odd-numbered problems, and other resources.


Originally published through traditional means, this textbook is now available as an open educational resource. This text includes single and multivariable calculus and was written by a professor of mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Includes: an instructor’s manual, a student study guide with exercises and select solutions, and links to a calculus video series by the author.

Calculus for Life Sciences

Differential Calculus for the Life Sciences

This textbook was written by a math professor at the University of British Columbia and is currently used as a textbook for introductory calculus courses for life sciences undergraduates.

Includes: exercises and solutions to selected problems.

Calculus for the Life Sciences: A Modelling Approach Volume 1

This textbook was written by two professors at Iowa State University with the goal introducing students to scientific modeling. This course aims to teach students the necessary skills and concepts from a traditional physical sciences course, while explaining the applications of calculus to the life sciences.

Includes: exercises, solutions to select problems, and MATLAB exercises.


Introductory Statistics: Saylor

This peer-reviewed resource introduces statistical concepts, including: descriptive statistics, basic concepts of probability, discrete random variables, continuous random variables, sampling distributions, estimation, testing hypotheses, two-sample problems, correlation and regression, and chi-square and f-tests.

Includes: exercises and answers.
