Homework System
If you are unsure if MA124 is the right course for you, you
should WAIT UNTIL AFTER YOUR FIRST LECTURE before you purchase
anything.
Textbook:
Briggs, Cochran, and Gillett: Calculus (Early
Transcendentals, 2nd edition),
Pearson, 2015.
MyMathLab (MML) online homework system and online textbook (required)

Register for an account with the publisher Pearson through their
online MML system at www.mymathlab.com

There is a bundled version of the
online MML homework system and online textbook.
We have negotiated
a discounted price for this bundled version,
approximately $118.
The bundle
is available through the MML website (www.mymathlab.com)
and at the BU
Bookstore.
Purchase of the bundle will give you a passcode
for the MML website, through which you access the online textbook
and the online homework system.
Note that
you must be connected to the internet each time
you use the online homework system and the online 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 online 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
separately.

(USEFUL INFO)
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.

(OPTIONAL)
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.
COURSE CODES (on your MML account):
There are separate MML
course codes
for each lecture section A1A3.
The course codes start with the last name of your professor
and are then followed by 5 digits, without any spaces.
Use the one
that is for the lecture section you are registered in.
The course codes will be given out by your professor during the
first week of the semester.
ENTERING BU ID Number (on your MML Account):
When setting up your MML account for MA124,
you must enter your BU ID number.
