Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions (5
, by Larson, Hoestetler and Edwards -
Note: If you have a previous edition of the textbook, you do not need to buy the new
edition. However, you should collaborate with a classmate with the 5
edition to mark similar
homework problems so you can practice properly for each section.
You need at least a scientific calculator for this course (recommended brand is Texas
Instruments). Graphing calculators are optional and may not be used on certain exams. Recommended model
is TI-83 or TI-84.
The TI-89 will not be permitted in this course
. If you do not have a graphing calculator,
you may use free online graphing calculators to complete your homework (see course website for links). No
graphing calculator will be required for any exam or quiz.
A Note About Office Hours
I highly encourage you to come to office hours for help. However, you must come
prepared with your work done and specific questions. If you come to office hours because you did not attend class,
do your work or read the section, I will ask you to do so before I will help. I am not here to do your work for you.
