This website will not be updated much during the quarter. Announcements, lecture notes, and other course materials will be available on the Canvas Learning Management System, available only to enrolled students.

Add codes:

For those students looking for an add code, the Math Department does not overload Math 126 and we do not keep a waiting list. Come to class the first week (including Quiz Section) and keep checking on-line enrollments. The only way to get in is to find an opening online.

Textbook and Calculator Info:

The only thing that students are required to purchase for this course is an access code for Webassign.

If you took Math 124 and/or Math 125 at UW recently and purchased a Lifetime of the Edition (LOE) or multi-term access code for one of those courses, you do not need to purchase anything further.

Otherwise, the cheapest option (and the one I recommend) is to follow the link on this page and purchase "Enhanced WebAssign Instant Access for Calculus, Multi-Term Courses, 1st Edition" for $87.00, (also available at the book store for the same price, after taxes). This will come with an electronic version of the text, which I've found is sufficient for most students.  The Multi-Term Course code will work for Math 324 (which also uses Stewart's text and Webassign) or if you must retake Math 126 in a future quarter, as long as the 8th edition is in use. (Do note, however, that access is purchased for the text. Since Math 124, 125, 126, and 324 use the same text, the same code works for all these courses (provided it is multi-term access). If you take a course that uses a different textbook (such as Math 308), you will be required to purchase Webassign access for that textbook.)

On exams, the only calculator that you will be allowed to use is the TI 30X IIS (any color). If you do not already own this calculator, I highly recommend that you purchase one and use it for homework as well as exams.
