Text book:

Calculus: Early Transcendentals by James Stewart, 7th edition,

  • there is also a "one-variable" edition if you do not plan to take Math 5C
  • ISBN:9781133295327 for the Cabrillo Custom Edition (you don't really need this for me.) We will not be using "web assign", so you can try to find the 7th edition online if you like. If you want to use the 6th edition, you may. Notice that I have provided homework assignments for both editions.
