you use the on-line homework system and the on-line textbook.
If you have an MML account from taking MA123 here at Boston University
during the past two years, then that account is still valid with the passcode
that you used in MA123,
and you do not need to purchase anything.
The MML passcode that you receive for MA124
(or have from MA123) will also be valid for you
to use in MA225 (Multivariable Calculus) in Spring 2018
and Fall 2018 without additional payment.
Your MyMathLab passcode gives you access to
the on-line textbooks for MA123, MA124, and MA225.
Internet retailers such as Amazon
sell MML pass codes, but some buyers complain
that the pass codes are invalid or have
already been used.
Do not purchase a used textbook unless
you can get a good deal on a usable MyMathLab passcode
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.
When purchasing the MML passcode,
there is the option to also purchase a soft cover version of the
textbook ISBN, 9781269986274.
This is at a very low extra cost.
