Do I need to buy the textbook? Maybe. It's a "coursepack" written by another professor here at Biola, so it's only $20.63 (after tax) from the bookstore for a printed copy. It is also available online for free (See below for the first few chapters). But some people prefer to have a printed version. Also: the book is the same as previous semesters, so if you know someone with an old copy, that will be fine. The Flatland book is $3.30 (after tax) at the bookstore but also available online for free.


Here are the chapters of the coursepack: After Chapter 7, see Canvas for the remaining chapters
