Open-source interactive textbooks, which are aligned with the values of academia, allow both instructors and students to take ownership of their educational resources.
BiographyJim Fowler teaches mathematics at OSU. His research interests broadly include geometry and topology, and more specifically, his interests focus on the topology of high-dimensional manifolds and geometric group theory, which means he gets to think about highly symmetric geometric objects. He's particularly fond of using computational techniques to attack problems in pure mathematics. Prior to arriving at OSU, he received an undergraduate degree from Harvard University and received a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
