Book Information
The following table provides all the necessary information about which books are used by the lowerlevel 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. 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 lowerlevel math classes are using ebooks and/or required software accompanying the ebook. 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).
(4) If your course is not visible on this page you should see it here.
