Textbook: Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 5th Edition, Stewart, Thompson Brooks/Cole Publishers.
The mathematics department has determined that the rising costs in textbooks presents a barrier to many students education in mathematics. Typically, a new calculus text runs in the neighborhood of $200, and constant new editions of the text seem to appear every two years, adding to the rising costs of the textbook. Consequently, the mathematics department is instituting a new policy for textbooks for its calculus sequence.
The deparment has purchased 100 copies (we'll add more during the semester) and have put them in the library. If you do not have a textbook, you may check one out at the library. You are responsible to turn the book in at the end of the semester in good condition, as you would be with any other library book. A list of calculus students has been given to the library, so you'll need to identify yourself with photo ID and CR Library card. The calculus books will only be checked out to registered calculus students.
