CAS MA 123
Calculus I
All Sections
Fall 2017 Textbook and
Online Homework System
If you are unsure if MA123 is the right course for you, you
should WAIT UNTIL YOUR FIRST LECTURE before you purchase
anything.
Textbook:
Briggs, Cochran, and Gillett: Calculus (Early
Transcendentals, 2nd edition),
Pearson, 2015.
Online homework system: MyMathLab
(You can access this course on MyMathLab at NO COST for 14 days without
a passcode. After
that, you will need a code. Therefore,
a MyMathLab passcode is required eventually
for all students.)
Note that this code will be valid for you
to use in MA124 and MA225 in Spring 2018
and Fall 2018 without additional payment.
Your MyMathLab passcode gives you access to
the ebooks for MA123, MA124, and MA225.
Note: Internet retailers such as Amazon
sell codes, but some buyers complain that the codes are invalid or have
already been used.
There are two options available to you:

An online version of the textbook comes with MyMathLab, but
you must be connected to the internet to use it. If you feel
that you do not need a paper textbook, then all you need is
a MyMathLab passcode. MyMathLab passcodes are available from
the MyMathLab web site and the BU Bookstore.

We have negotiated a
discounted price for a bundled version of the textbook
along with a passcode for the online homework system. The bundle
is available at the BU
Bookstore. It includes a soft cover version of the
textbook that is bundled with the MyMathLab passcode (ISBN 9781269986274).
This bundle is available for $118.65.
Do not purchase a used textbook unless
you can get a good deal on a MyMathLab passcode
separately.
