Winter 2015 Courses Announcements - Updated 12/10/2014
Math 96 7:40 - 8:50
The text for this class is Math 96 Intermediate Algebra in Context.  It will be available in our bookstore later in December.  A free version will be available in WAMAP, but it is probably easier and less expensive to buy the bookstore version than to print your own copy.
Math 107  9:00- 9:50 The text for this class is Math in a Vibrant and Sustainable Society, by Pete Kaslik.  It will be available in our bookstore later in December.  It is not available online.
Math 146   10:00- 10:50 The two weeks of the quarter are very important as there are some challenging concepts that are taught that are critical for the entire quarter.  I strongly recommend perfect attendance during this time.  The text for this class is Foundations in Statistical Reasoning, Draft 4, by Pete Kaslik.  It will be available in our bookstore later in December.  It is not available online.
