The Worry Free Writer is the product of over 20 years of experience in teaching composition. Dr. Palmer directs students through the Writing Process, while teaching them a simple Writing Formula that they can use to help take the stress out of writing for academic purposes.

This text is a comprehensive textbook for first year composition, including instruction for standard essays covered in ENG 101, as well as writing the literature based essays typically covered in ENG 102.

In the first part of this text, students learn how to write an analysis, an evaluation, and an argument with step by step instructions. Additionally, the book includes mini-grammar reviews of common writing errors, an introduction to MLA and APA formatting, and a guide for publishing work to the web.

In the second half of the text, students learn how to write about literature, with a step by step guide for writing a poetry analysis, a critical lens analysis of a short story, and a literary comparison between an essay (creative non-fiction) and another piece of literature.

Informal Calculus

Author(s): Tyler Seacrest

Subject(s): Mathematics and Science, Calculus, Biology, life sciences, Earth sciences

Institution(s): The University of Montana-Western

Last updated: 26/04/2023

This book is an approachable introduction to calculus with applications to biology and environmental science. For example, one application in the book is determining the volume of earth moved in the 1959 earthquake that created Quake Lake. Another application uses differential equations to model various biological examples, including moose and wolf populations at Isle Royale National Park, ranavirus in amphibians, and competing species of protozoa. The text focuses on intuitive understanding of concepts, but still covers most of the algebra and calculations common in a survey of calculus course.
