TEXTBOOK

Math 120R will use Precalculus for the University of Arizona, 7th edition with WebAssign, by James Stewart, Lothar Redlin, and Saleem Watson.

The Textbook and WebAssign access for homework are being delivered digitally via D2L through the Inclusive Access program. 


If you opted into “Pay One Price”: You automatically have access to the course materials through Pay-One-Price. 

 

If you opted OUT of “Pay One Price” earlier in the semester:  Opting out of Pay One Price includes opting out of the Inclusive Access program that bundles the text and the homework platform.  Choosing to opt-out also removes you from the ability to use the homework platform.  Your instructor will discuss your options with you when the course begins.

CALCULATORS

A graphing calculator is required for Math 120R. We recommend any model in the TI-83 or TI-84 series. Models that can perform symbolic calculations (also known as CAS) are NOT allowed on exams and quizzes. CAS models include (but are not limited to) the TI-89,TI NSpire CAS, HP 50g, and Casio Classpad 330.

For more information about models, see http://math.arizona.edu/academics/calculators.

Students are not allowed to share calculators during exams and quizzes. 


HOMEWORK

Math 120R uses a computer grading program called WebAssign for textbook assignments. Logging into WebAssign can only be done through the WebAssign Login link in your Math 120R D2L site. 

Additional homework and/or quizzes may be assigned by instructors. Be sure to check with your instructor.
