Textbook Information

The following table provides all the necessary information about which books are used by the lower-level courses that the Math Department teaches. In many cases, we have gone to great lengths to get discount prices for the required books.

Important Note to Students:

  1. Please also contact the assigned instructor for particular information about your class. You can find their contact information here  (most instructors are found under the faculty link, some may be listed as graduate students). If your class is not yet assigned to a specific teacher, then you can contact the course coordinator for more information. You can find the list of course coordinators here.
  2. Please carefully READ the Book Purchasing Information document, if it exists, for your class. Many of the lower-level math classes are using e-books and/or required software accompanying the e-book. Be sure you know what's required for your course before you just purchase the book used online.
  3. Also remember that we make every effort to have the textbooks listed below in the Marriott Library at the Reserve Desk where students can check out the book to use for a short period of time (typically around three hours at a time).
