We would like to thank Edward Mandity for serving as the project manager for the textbook creation process. We would also like to thank Amanda Hurford with the PALNI team for working with us when we encountered challenges along the way. We owe a great debt to our reviewers, Dr. Joshua Kiers and Dr. Aaron Boudreaux, for their helpful suggestions and key insights that drastically improved our initial draft. We would like to also thank Matthew Furber for offering graphic design advice as well as introducing us to our fabulous illustrator, Mia M. Scarlato. Additionally, we would like to thank our department chair, Dr. Matt DeLong, for his constant support of our efforts to drive learning and equity through the creation of this open-access textbook. We also wish to thank all members of Marian University’s Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences in the School of Science and Mathematics for the awesome discussions of research, pedagogy, and inclusive instruction, not to mention the fellowship and friendship.
