CAS MA 124
Spring 2018 Textbook and
On-line Homework System
If you are unsure if MA124 is the right course for you, you
should WAIT UNTIL YOUR FIRST LECTURE before you purchase
Briggs, Cochran, and Gillett: Calculus (Early
Transcendentals, 2nd edition),
On-line 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.) If you already have a MyMathLab account
from last semester, you can use that account this semester as well.
Note that your account will also be valid for you
to use in MA225 in Fall 2018
without additional payment.
Your MyMathLab passcode gives you access to
the ebooks for MA124 and MA225.
Note: Various internet retailers
sell codes, but some buyers complain that the codes are invalid or have
already been used.
There are two options available to you:
An on-line 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 account.
We have negotiated a
discounted price for a bundled version of the textbook
along with a passcode for the on-line 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
This bundle is available for $118.65.
Do not purchase a used textbook unless
you can get a good deal on a MyMathLab passcode
