We have grouped resources by discipline. These resources were made for a variety of audiences, so you will need to review them and make modifications before assigning anything to students.

Note: None of the resources are from the University of Missouri, but are crowd-sourced. Please be aware that fees, varying accessibility, and reliance on Java may impede the practical use of the resource. However, they are a place to start.
