Fall 2012

NOTE: Of the other versions out there,

Here are links to texts that are OK (In particular, note the ISBN numbers

- Here is a link to the main text: "Calculus, with Early Transcendentals", by James Stewart (7th edition). This textbook will be useful for all three semesters of Calculus (and I recommend keeping it as a reference text!).
- If you are only taking Calc I and II (and not III), you may choose to purchase the "Single Variable" version of the textbook. The initial chapters (Chapters 1-11) are identical. The previous link contains Chapters 12-17, which are covered in our Calculus III course.
