New Text....

We will be changing the text for the fall 2009 and beyond semesters for the courses 110.108-9 Calculus I-II (Phys. Sci. & Eng.). The old text was the red book at left: "Single Variable Essential Calculus" by James Stewart (ISBN-13: 9780495109556).

The new text comes from the same author, and is really simply the expanded version of the same material. It is "Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals" (ISBN-13: 9780495011699).

The summer courses will continue to use the old text. Sorry for the inconvenience. This new choice will be stable for a while, we believe.

Back again, eh?

Hello all again.

After a long hiatus, I decided to begin posting here again. There were reasons for the gap in attendance on my part. But I do notice that some posts are read long after their birthdate, and people do find their content useful. So I will start up again and continue to post on current events, mathematics issues, and department-related matters. For instance, we have started a Facebook group devoted to matters concerning the department. To see it, you will need FB access. Just do a search on our data.

Also new, we will again be changing the textbook for our course sequence 110.108-9 Calculus I-II (Eng. & Phys. Sci.). The author will be the same as the previous book (James Stewart), but we will be using the expanded version. When I get the ISBN, I will pass it along.

Talk to you soon.
