Textbook
Calculus: Early Transcendentals by James Stewart. We use the 8th edition.
The bookstore offers an unbound version called a package component. Only buy the text or the package component, not both.
Earlier editions are available and may be less expensive. It is up to the student to make adjustments with regard to page numbers, chapter numbers, and content if using an earlier edition. The 8th edition will be on reserve at Carlson Library to facilitate this process.
This text is also used by MTH 142, MTH 143, MTH 161, MTH 162, and MTH 164.

Did you know?
Since many of the students in Math 141 are freshmen, we provide a few details of the university’s academic honesty policy that hold for all courses. This is just for your information. If you find any of them surprising, you should take the quizzes linked below.

Making a false statement in order to try to get an extension on homework or a makeup on a quiz or exam is a violation of the university’s academic honesty policy.

Allowing another student to copy from you in an exam is considered as serious a violation as copying.

You can be held responsible for details of the academic honesty policy that you were not aware of.

If you are found to have violated the academic honesty policy in a course, you may not withdraw from it or declare the S/F option.
