 Recommended Textbook  The textbook for the course is
"Calculus, 8 th Edition, Early
Transcendentals" by Stewart. An electronic version is included with
your purchase of a WebAssign access code, so a paper copy is not
required. We do recommend that you read the textbook, and a paper copy
will make that easier. An older edition of the paper textbook will
serve just as well, and will cost significantly less. Some used custom
versions of this textbook (volume 1 covers math124 and math125) may be
available at the UW bookstore.
 All homework is accessed and turned in online using
WebAssign.
You will automatically be registered in the correct WebAssign section
on the first day of classes. You won't be able to access the homework
until then. You must enter your accesss code within two weeks of that
day.
