A Guidebook to Presentation Speaking, 7th edition, has been significantly expanded to follow the template of the Five Canon approach. Presentation speaking has been chosen as the title because presentations are used more frequently than public speaking. Presentation speaking includes situations where speakers use both verbal and nonverbal communication to send messages to audiences creating relationships with people who are usually present. Public speaking is a specialized form of speaking used in organizations, communities, and government settings.

A Handbook of Practical Grammar for Public Communications emphasizes both the forms and functions of grammatical elements. The ability to analyze one’s own writing depends, in large measure, upon the ability to identify how a word or word group is functioning. Two similar forms may not be functioning similarly, and the clash of their functions can result in a kind of dissonance; or a word that appears to be one part of speech may just as easily be another, and the author’s ambiguity can leave readers scratching their heads.

Undergraduate computer science students need to learn and use the mathematical method of abstraction, definition, and proof, perhaps even earlier than do mathematics students. They deal constantly with formally defined systems beyond those studied in mathematics courses, and must be able reason about them formally in order to write and understand programs.

Music is a language. And, like most languages, it has a written form and an audible form.
Nearly everyone can speak and understand their native language, but not everyone can read and write it as well as they would like. Many musicians "play by ear;' meaning they can listen to music and then recreate it using an instrument or their voice. Quite often such musicians can be very skilled at this process, and yet still not understand or be able to use the music notation system.

Linear Algebra is a powerful tool that allows scientists to model physical phenomena and efficiently solve the systems of equations that arise from them. It is essential to almost every field of mathematics, such as geometry, topology, number theory, and abstract algebra. As such, it is not only computationally useful, with applications in data science, quantum mechanics, statistics, computer science, and all branches of engineering, but it also a great opportunity for the student to explore the beauty and elegance of mathematics.
A current, thorough, conversational, and scientifically sound resource on meteorology.
A World of Weather: Fundamentals of Meteorology presents basic principles that enable students to gain a “thorough possession” of the underlying scientific principles of meteorology and to be able to think critically about them. This text shows how fundamental concepts fit together to form a conceptual pyramid that explains how the atmosphere really works. It shows students how to apply the concepts learned by offering examples based on real weather data.
About Music: Critical Listening Skills explains the fascinating aspects of the fundamentals of sound, how musical instruments work, the mechanics of hearing, and how we neurologically process the musical sounds we make. Add to that the way music and sound is recorded, manipulated, and stored, and a whole new way to observe our craft has been revealed in this text. Often these fundamental aspects of music are overlooked or ignored in a curriculum of study of music and music teaching. It is a fascinating trip through the science of acoustics.
