Textbook: College Algebra and Calculus An Applied Approach by Larson and Hodgkins, Second Ed. with Math Study Skills by Nolting, Fourth Ed. (custom)

Online Homework Information: This course requires Enhanced WebAssign (EWA) for online homework which comes with an ebook version of our textbook.  The semester begins with a 14-day free trial, so everyone will have access to both the online homework and the ebook at the beginning of the semester.  Since Math 119 and Math 125 are now using a combined textbook, one EWA Access Code will work for both courses.  The EWA code you purchase this semester for Math 119 (College Algebra) will automatically transfer to your Math 125 (Basic Calculus) course when you take it in a future semester provided that we are still using the same edition of the textbook.

Textbook/EWA purchasing options: There are many options for purchasing the EWA access code and/or the textbook including a bundle option (printed textbook with EWA code) sold at either the campus bookstore or http://go.cengage.com/coursepage/UTKMath.  EWA access codes can also be purchased without a printed text at either the campus bookstore or http://www.cengagebrain.com/micro/utkmath.  EWA access codes may also be purchased directly from WebAssign during the free trial period.  You may also be able to find the required course materials from an off campus bookstore or other online site, however, we suggest you compare prices before you purchase.  If you want a printed textbook, our bundle options are usually less expensive than buying a used textbook and EWA access code separately from outside sources.  Please note that if you order from http://www.cengagebrain.com/micro/utkmath, the product will be physically mailed to you (not delivered electronically), so allow 4-5 days for processing and shipping.

Catalog Description: A review of algebraic functions, equations, and inequalities for students who satisfy the course prerequisites for 123 or 125 but whose placement test scores indicated additional preparation is necessary.
