|title=Calculus Based Physics<br />
|author=Jeffrey W. Schnick<br />
|url=http://www.anselm.edu/internet/physics/cbphysics/index.html<br />
|description=This excellent set of two books (one for each semester) shines not only because it is so professionally produced, but because it is offered in a format that makes it easy to share, easy to edit, and easy to photocopy. Each book is available as a PDF or as a MS Word document, so that professors can rearrange, add, and subtract from the book before they assign it to students. The books themselves are well-written, and the author goes to great pains to make the calculus accessible to students who might be a little rusty.<br />
<br />
There are also separate problem sets with answers, math handouts for students who are taking calculus simultaneously with the physics course, syllabi, and even prepackaged online quizzes for use with the popular Blackboard web platform. Highly Recommended!<br />

From the site:<br />
<br />
''The scope of this course is indicated by its title, ``Analytical Classical Dynamics’’. Taking the elements of the title in reverse order, ``Dynamics’’ is the study of the motions of the various objects in the world around us. A mathematical theory of dynamics is an axiomatic system, ultimately based on a few fundamental laws, which can be used to both understand and predict these motions. By ``Classical”, we understand that the theory of motion which we are going to use in our investigation of dynamics is that first published by Isaac Newton in 1687. We now know that this theory is only approximately true. The theory breaks down when the velocities of the objects under investigation approach the speed of light, and must be replaced by Einstein’s special theory of relativity. The theory also breaks down on the atomic and subatomic scales, and must be replaced by quantum mechanics. In this course, we shall neglect both relativistic and quantum effects entirely. It follows that we must restrict our investigation to the motions of large (compared to an atom) slow (compared to the speed of light) objects.''<br />

|title=An Evolutionist Deconstructs Creationism<br />
|author=Arndt von Hippel, M.D.<br />
|url=http://textbookrevolution.org/files/evolutionist_deconstructs.pdf<br />
|description=Dr. von Hippel is the author of five books, all of which he has graciously agreed to let Textbook Revolution host. In this book, as in his book In Darwin’s Image, he tackles the evolution vs. creationism debate from a scientific viewpoint.<br />
<br />
Readers should note that the this book has obvious political and religious viewpoints. The opinions of the author are his own and are not representative of the opinions of Textbook Revolution. We are hosting this book as a community service. Please direct all comments, positive or negative, to the author.<br />
<br />
This book is a straightforward PDF file with no bells or whistles. We hope to transfer the book to the new dotReader format in the coming months and to improve the readability of the PDF book.<br />
<br />
The book is available in print from Amazon.com for $13.98 plus shipping. The author is also selling his own copies at $6 including U.S. shipping. Please contact him directly at avhmvh AT gci DOT net to purchase from him.<br />
<br />
Dr. von Hippel has provided this bio:<br />
<br />
Arndt von Hippel was born in Germany in 1932 and arrived in the United States in 1936. He comes from a unique multigenerational scientific family that was featured in The Scientist. Dr. von Hippel acquired his B.S. in Biology from M.I.T. and an M.D. from Harvard. In 1965, after eight years of surgical training, hemoved to Anchorage with his pediatrician wife and their children, where he opened a solo practice in chest surgery and later developed Alaska’s very successful heart surgery program. Following retirement, von Hippel taught a popular course in human anatomy and physiology at the University of Alaska.<br />
<br />
Excerpt from the book:<br />
<br />
In this highly readable, thought-provoking, amusing little book, Dr. Arndt von Hippel develops many original, evolution-based insights into how, when, where and why religions arise, compete, adapt and die. He also dissects the doctrinal illogicalities, historical inconsistencies and antiscientific biases of creationism to demonstrate that these theological aberrations are unavoidable side-effects of evolutionarily correct behavior.<br />
<br />
The book ends with twenty-two poems and mini-essays that explore matters ranging from funerals, unwed fathers and Pascal’s wager on eternity, to the secular nature of morality, the allure of virtual realities and the mysteries of the Holy Trinity.<br />

To add a new Book, please provide a short-title. This short-title will also be the URL name. For example, say you were to add the book ''Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica'', a good short title might be ''PrincipiaMathematica'' (note that it is all one word and in "camelcase"). <br />
