In this textbook there are fourteen chapters that are mostly indpendent of each other. For a typical semester course the instructor can choose several of the sections but would not be able to cover all of them. The text is full of exercises and activities to keep the students actively engaged. Each chapter has a number of short videos to emphasize the key ideas or show how to solve examples.
