Active Calculus [PDF] [Hardcopy] [Source]
From Matthew Boelkins, David Austin, and Steven Schlicker at Grand Valley State University: “There are very few worked examples in the text, with there instead being 3-4 activities per section that engage students in connecting ideas, solving problems, and developing understanding of key calculus concepts; each section begins with motivating questions, a brief introduction, and a preview activity, all of which are designed to be read and completed prior to class; following the WeBWorK exercises in each section, there are several challenging problems that require students to connect key ideas and write to communicate their understanding.” [Home] [Active Calculus Multivariable].

Number Theory: In Context and Interactive
"Karl-Dieter Crisman's Number Theory: In Context and Interactive is a free textbook for an upper-level (US) number theory course, with a clear vision to expose students to the connections to all areas of mathematics. There are many exercises, both proof-based and computational, and nearly every concept can be visualized or experimented with using the open source mathematics software SageMath." This is an excellent example of using the Sage Cell Server to run interactive point-and-click demonstrations. CC-BY-ND license. (2017-09-04)

Extended Echelon Form and Four Subspaces [Published PDF]
The first article written in PreTeXt was this short note for the American Mathematical Monthly in Summer 2013. LaTeX output (slightly edited) was sent to the publisher as the original submission. Since then, the XML source has been edited to keep up with revisions requested by the publisher and to keep up with changes to PreTeXt. You can compare the web version with the PDF of the published version. A few very minor differences will be ironed out as PreTeXt matures.
