Sullivan, Eric. 2015. Numerical Methods - An Inquiry-Based Approach with Python. Available at numericalmethodssullivan.github.io/ .
Eric Sullivan of Carroll College, Helena MT USA has authored an exceptional numerical methods textbook. Numerical Methods - An Inquiry-Based Approach with Python is the perfect book for creatively teaching numerical methods using the very popular Python environment.
This is an OER effort on the part of Eric to explore the joy of numerical methods. He has provided several versions HTML, PDF, and Print on Demand, along with Google Colab materials and Jupyter Notebooks and YouTube Playlist for Python How to materials. With chapters to match up to specific courses and topics this text, in addition to serving as a text for numerical methods course, will complement many other courses using these methods.
The section of the text - go ahead and look it up in the posted numerical methods textbook - "How To Make Mathematics Readable – 10 Things To Do" is magnificent and we can all use it with our students (and w.r.t. our own writing!)
