This course is designed to provide an engaging and personally relevant overview of the discipline of Abnormal Psychology. You will examine the cognitive and behavioral patterns which impair personal effectiveness and adjustment. Students will provide much of the substantive content and teaching presence in this course. Additional content has been curated from "The Noba Project (http://nobaproject.com/)" and "Abnormal Psychology: An e-text! (http://abnormalpsych.wikispaces.com/).

This book is designed to make "Abstract Algebra" as down-to-earth as possible. Using concrete examples such as the complex numbers, integers mod n, polynomials, symmetries, and permutations. We also introduce some of the beautifully general ideas of the theory of groups, rings, and fields. Along the way, we give applications to signal processing, cryptography and coding theory, as well as making connections with other branches of mathematics such as geometry and number theory.
The textbook is provided in three different formats: hyperlinked online version, pdf, and spiral bound copy (printme1.com is recommended for on-demand printing).

This course treats various methods to design and analyze datastructures and algorithms for a wide range of problems. The most important new datastructure treated is the graph, and the general methods introduced are: greedy algorithms, divide and conquer, dynamic programming and network flow algorithms. These general methods are explained by a number of concrete examples, such as simple scheduling algorithms, Dijkstra, Ford-Fulkerson, minimum spanning tree, closest-pair-of-points, knapsack, and Bellman-Ford. Throughout this course there is significant attention to proving the correctness of the discussed algorithms. All material for this course is in English. The recorded lectures, however, are in Dutch.
On this page, we have offered syllabi, course readings, chapter-by-chapter discussion questions, key terms, quizzes, essay assignments, and exams to do just that. Individual instructors, of course, should always govern their own curriculum and be able to determine their own pedagogy. Rather than attempting to build a common curriculum, these resources are designed merely as a starting point. Like our text, they are licensed openly (CC-BY-SA): you are encouraged to use them, download them, distribute them, and modify them as you see fit. Moreover, The American Yawp is, as always, an evolving, collaborative project. We welcome the submission of additional teaching materials and feedback on existing material. If you have any ideas or resources you’d like to share, please contact the editors (Ben Wright for the first half, and Joseph Locke for the second) directly.
These materials are designed to supplement a year-long three-course sequence that uses OpenStax Anatomy and Physiology (https://openstax.org/details/anatomy-and-physiology).
This OER is a quick, hands-on lab that helps students explore the anatomy and function of angiosperm seeds. Topics such as seed anatomy and function, seed dormancy, and seed germination are addressed in this lab. This lab is intended to be used as instructional materials for biology teachers.Within this resource are instructions on required lab materials,an introduction to seed anatomy and function, an explanation of seed dormancy and germination, a seed diagram to label, and student exercises to assist in content mastery.

Arithmetic | Algebra Homework book is a static version of the WeBWork online homework assignments that accompany the textbook Arithmetic | Algebra for the developmental math courses MAT 0630 and MAT 0650 at New York City College of Technology, CUNY.
This is an exploration of visual art forms and their cultural connections for the student with little experience in the visual arts. The course includes a brief study of art history and in depth studies of the elements, media, and methods used in creative process and thought. Visual and performing arts are part of the Humanities: academic disciplines that study the human condition and, in addition to the arts, include languages, literature, law, history and religion. This course will teach students to develop a five-step system for understanding visual art in all forms based on description, analysis, meaning, context and judgment.Login: guest_oclPassword: ocl
This course is an exploration of visual art forms and their cultural connections across historical periods, designed for the student with little experience in the visual arts. It includes brief studies in art history, and in-depth inquiry into the elements, media and methods used in a wide range of creative processes. At the beginning of this course, you will learn a five-step system for developing an understanding of visual art in all forms, based on:
1. Description: A work of art from an objective point of view – its physical attributes and formal construction.
2. Analysis: A detailed look at a work of art that combines physical attributes with subjective statements based on the viewer's reaction to the work.
3. Context: Historical, religious or environmental information that surrounds a particular work of art and which helps to understand the work's meaning.
4. Meaning: A statement of the work's content. A message or narrative expressed by the subject matter.
5. Judgment: A critical point of view about a work of art concerning its aesthetic or cultural value.
After completing this course, you will be able to interpret works of art based on this five-step system; explain the processes involved in artistic production; identify the many kinds of issues that artists examine in their work; and explain the role and effect of the visual arts in different social, historical and cultural contexts.
An introduction to the main techniques of Artifical Intelligence: state-space search methods, semantic networks, theorem-proving and production rule systems. Important applications of these techniques are presented. Students are expected to write programs exemplifying some of techniques taught, using the LISP lanuage.

The course Bio-Inspired Design gives an overview of non-conventional mechanical approaches in nature and shows how this knowledge can lead to more creativity in mechanical design and to better (simpler, smaller, more robust) solutions than with conventional technology. The course discusses a large number of biological organisms with smart constructions, unusual mechanisms or clever sensing and processing methods and presents a number of technical examples and designs of bio-inspired instruments and machines.
Test anxiety is real. Millions of students all over the country experience this vague sense of unease when it comes to testing. Psychology gives us insight into what is going on with our bodies in response to something like test anxiety. In fact, when a person understands their body’s response to anxiety, it can be helpful in dealing with it. The purpose of this project is to better understand how the body’s structures (i.e., parts), functions (i.e., what those parts do), and systems operate when a student experiences test anxiety.
Abbreviated Directions: On a piece of very large paper or poster board, label and explain the role and/or process of biological structures, functions, and systems that are activated when a student is experiencing test anxiety.
The Boundless Art History textbook is a college-level, introductory textbook that provides an overview of Art History from pre-history through to modern global art.
