You will need the following items:

  • A calculator (scientific or graphing).  A TI-89 is required.
  • A straightedge
  • Graphing paper
  • Some Flash memory for file storage.

The use of calculators is encouraged for class work, homework, and tests!   But you still need to demonstrate competence both with and without a calculator.

The text book for the course is Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus (Sixth Edition) by Steward, . Redlin, and Watson.
