- A First Course in Linear AlgebraThis text, originally by Ken Kuttler, has been redesigned by the Lyryx editorial team as a first course in linear algebra for science and engineering students who have an understanding of basic algebra. All major topics of linear algebra are available in detail, as well as proofs of important theorems.
- Linear Algebra with ApplicationsThe aim of the text is to achieve a balance among computational skills, theory, and applications of linear algebra. It is a relatively advanced introduction to the ideas and techniques of linear algebra targeted for science and engineering students who need to understand not only how to use these methods but also gain insight into why they work.
- Linear Algebra with Applications: An adaptation for MAT223 UTMThis open textbook is an adaptation of Linear Algebra with Applications by W. Keith Nicholson. The original book can be found and downloaded from Lyryx.com. Five topics are covered here: system of linear equations, matrix algebra, determinants and diagonalization, vector geometry and vector space. It's suitable for beginners who are interested in learning linear algebra.
- Linear Algebra: A Course for Physicists and EngineersThis open textbook is meant for courses on space and atmospheric science, remote sensing, geographic information systems, meteorology, climate and satellite communications. Various applications of formal theory are discussed as well, including differential equations, statistics, optimization and some engineering-motivated problems in physics.

- OpenStax PrecalculusPrecalculus is adaptable and designed to fit the needs of a variety of precalculus courses. It is a comprehensive text that covers more ground than a typical one- or two-semester college-level precalculus course. The content is organized by clearly-defined learning objectives and includes worked examples that demonstrate problem-solving approaches in an accessible way.
- OpenStax CalculusCalculus is designed for the typical two- or three-semester general calculus course, incorporating innovative features to enhance student learning. The book guides students through the core concepts of calculus and helps them understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. Volume 1 covers functions, limits, derivatives, and integration.
- Contemporary Calculus IThis is a textbook for differential calculus with explanations, examples, worked solutions, problem sets and answers. It has been reviewed by calculus instructors and class-tested by them and the author.
- Applied CalculusAn openly licensed applied calculus textbook, covering derivatives, integrals, and an intro to multivariable calculus. This book is heavily remixed from Dale Hoffman's Contemporary Calculus textbook, and retains the same conceptual focus from that text.
- Active Calculus MultivariableIn Active Calculus Multivariable, we endeavor to actively engage students in learning the subject through an activity-driven approach in which the vast majority of the examples are completed by students. Where many texts present a general theory of calculus followed by substantial collections of worked examples, we instead pose problems or situations, consider possibilities, and then ask students to investigate and explore.
- Community CalculusAn early transcendentals book covering single variable calculus, infinite series, and multivariable calculus.
- Calculus: Early TranscendentalsThis approachable text provides a comprehensive understanding of the necessary techniques and concepts of the typical Calculus course sequence, and is suitable for the standard Calculus I, II and III courses. To practice and develop an understanding of topics, this text offers a range of problems, from routine to challenging, with selected solutions.
- Differential Calculus for the Life SciencesIn this textbook, the applications form an important focal point, with emphasis on life sciences. This places the techniques and concepts into practical context, as well as motivating quantitative approaches to biology taught to undergraduates. While many of the examples have a biological flavour, the level of biology needed to understand those examples is kept at a minimum.

- Basic Analysis: Introduction to Real AnalysisThis is exactly the material that a student needs to see in their first two semesters of introductory analysis. It can be used as a first proof-based course coming after a linear algebra or possibly concurrently. Different people will find it fitting their curriculum differently. But this book provides a very nice two semester course that starts by introducing set theory and induction for the first time and ends with students ready for topology, measure theory, or more advanced calculus.
- Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value ProblemsElementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems is written for students in science, engineering, and mathematics who have completed calculus through partial differentiation. If your syllabus includes Chapter 10 (Linear Systems of Differential Equations), your students should have some preparation in linear algebra.
- Spiral Workbook for Discrete MathematicsThis is a text that covers the standard topics in a sophomore-level course in discrete mathematics: logic, sets, proof techniques, basic number theory, functions, relations, and elementary combinatorics, with an emphasis on motivation. It explains and clarifies the unwritten conventions in mathematics, and guides the students through a detailed discussion on how a proof is revised from its draft to a final polished form.
- Combinatorics Through Guided DiscoveryThis book is an introduction to combinatorial mathematics, also known as combinatorics. The book focuses especially, but not exclusively, on the part of combinatorics that mathematicians refer to as "counting." The book consists almost entirely of problems. Some of the problems are designed to lead you to think about a concept, others are designed to help you figure out a concept and state a theorem about it, while still others ask you to prove the theorem. Above all, this book is dedicated to the principle that doing mathematics is fun.
