An explanation of the textbook options for elementary math courses

Notes on textbook options in mathematics. (Under Revision)
(5/9/2010 - Textbooks should be correct, Prices and ISBN numbers being verified.)

This (Spring 2010) semester, in several lower division math courses, students will have an option of getting an electronic copy of the textbook.  This page explains some of the options available to students.

 

 

MyMathLab courses (Math 094, 096, 120, 122, and 132)

For these courses you need access to MyMathLab, an online homework and tutorial system.  You also need the textbook. 

 There are several ways of getting the textbook:

  • A complete version of the textbook is available online as part of MyMathLab.  If you choose this option you will need to bring a wireless enabled laptop to class with you.
  • A new hard cover book with a MyMathLab access code shrink wrapped with the book.
  • A used hard cover book.  In this case you need the access code separately.
  • A new loose leaf version of the book with MyMathLab shrink wrapped with the book.  This is cheaper up front, but you probably cannot resell the book.
Additionally, you may want the student solution manual.

Calculus (MATH 142, 143, and 244)


The text we use for these three courses is titled “Calculus” by Hughes-Hallet, McCallum, et. al and published by Wiley.  Students who only plan to take Calculus I and Calculus II can buy a smaller single variable version of the book.  Students who plan to take only Calculus III can get the smaller multivariable portion of the book.  If students are planning to take all three semesters, or Calculus II, and Calculus III they should get the larger Single and Multivariable version.  As of summer 2010, all three courses are using the 5th edition.  

The publisher also gives the option of getting the textbook in hardback, paperback, and looseleaf versions.  Looseleaf is cheapest, but you probably will not be able to resell it.)
