More from AIM: developments in free & open math texts

So much to share, so just going to go with a bulleted list for now.  Hope to flesh out more over the coming months. The American Institute of Mathematics is a cool place and they have an excellent organizational scheme.  About 30 of us with shared interests are fully funded to be here for the […]

As an outgrowth of the previously-mentioned session at the Baltimore Joint Meetings on open textbooks, Albert Schueller has started a new blog, Open Mathbook, to offer “a place to promote, discuss, and develop free and open source mathematics texts.”  There’s already a bunch of great posts there, including a trove of interesting developments from a […]

Joint Meetings 2014: free and open textbooks session

While it was certainly a good conference overall this year, last Friday at the Joint Meetings in Baltimore was particularly fantastic.  From 8-11 and 3-5, we had about 15 different presenters share interesting and exciting work and opportunities in the world of free and open-source mathematics texts.  Here are a few highlights: – Richard Hammack […]
