Gender, Race, Class provides a sociological overview of the impact of systems of inequality on populations in the United States. In particular, the book highlights how systems of inequality perpetuate themselves over generations and results in greater economic, gender, racial, and ethnic disparity. Designed for students to explore the deeper cultural and structural understanding of race, class, and gender, the text seeks to provide an appreciation for diversity and recognition of intersectionality.
The Power of Mathematics is designed for use in a general education mathematics course for college students with diverse majors and various levels of mathematical preparation. It is written from the perspective that our students are accomplished learners who can (and hopefully will) enjoy mathematics. The focus is on engaging students in authentic mathematical practice through problem solving.
The course content is organized in four modules:

Readers of Earth in Space and Time will become more critical interpreters of scientific ideas related to the Earth and will therefore make informed decisions in the future. The publication uses a “story book” format that starts at the beginning of everything and moves step-by-step to current times. Suitable for non-science majors who want to fulfill their science requirement, students will learn the integral role that earth science has in everything we produce, manufacture, and consume. The publication includes online resource links, figures, photos, and charts.

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.

This laboratory manual is designed to be paired with the General Chemistry component of a GOB course which annually enrolls about 1000 mostly pre-nursing and agricultural science students at Texas Tech University. Each experiment has six distinct components: Introduction, About the Experiment, Pre-laboratory Questions, Procedure, Data/Analysis, and Post-Laboratory Questions. General and specific safety considerations are collectively enumerated just prior to the procedure and re-emphasized within the procedure where they apply.
