In MAT MAT 146 and MAT 147, we are providing students with several options for a textbook. First, we are using the online system, Enhanced WebAssign. **Access to this system will be required for these courses**. In particular, you will be required to have an access code with access to the e-book *Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 7th Edition* by James Stewart. (Your instructor will also provide you with a class key for this system.) We also require you have a calculator with a computer algebra system and we strongly recommend the **TI-89 calculator**, which should be available for purchase from a number of different retailers. Additional purchases are not required, but are at the student's option and will depend on individual learning styles, budgets, and intended major/minor.

Access to the Enhanced WebAssign is free for the first 14 days from when the instructor indicates the beginning of the class. **As such, the Mathematics Department is recommending that you delay purchase of materials for your calculus class until you have gone to class and you have had a chance to weigh your options more carefully.**

Below, we discuss the various options available for this course. These are available at the campus bookstores, The Alamo II (www.neebo.com/illinois-state-university) and Barnes and Noble's ISU store as well as from the publisher Cengage.
