Paul's Notes
Thorough text-based lessons on algebra, calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. Lots of examples. (sublinks)

• College Algebra - Polynomials, graphs, equations, functions, exponents/logarithms. Math 34A spends some time reviewing these topics, but Math 3A will assume students are familiar with this material.
• Algebra/Trig Review - Rather than presenting lessons like the previous link, this review consists of practice problems and detailed solutions. Math 34A spends the first few weeks on this (minus the trig), while Math 3A students should consider this material as prerequisite.
• Calculus I - Provides some review, then covers limits, derivatives, and integrals. 34 students should note that the 34 curriculum does not cover all of the topics shown here.
• Calculus II - 3B/6A/6B: Integration techniques, polar coordinates, parametric equations, sequences and series.
• Calculus III - 6A: Partial derivatives, multiple integrals, vector fields, line integrals, curl/divergence, Green's Theorem, and surface integrals.
• Linear Algebra - 4A: Matrices, determinants, vectors, linear transformations, vector spaces (basis/dimension), and eigenvalues/eigenvectors.
• Differential Equations - 4B/6B: First order differential equations, second order differential equations, Laplace transforms, systems of differential equations, higher order differential equations, fourier series, and partial differential equations.
• Complex number primer - Brief introduction to complex numbers.
• Cheat sheets - Cheat sheets for algebra, trig, calculus (limits, derivatives, integrals), Laplace transforms. Note that these cheat sheets may not completely align with the curriculum of any one UCSB math course.
• How to study math - Tips on how to improve math study habits.
• Purplemath
Text lessons largely focusing on algebra. This includes graphing, polynomials, lines, equations, exponents/logarithms, intro trig, and matrix operations. 34A students may find the section on solving word problems to be particularly useful.
