MATH 120 - Spring 2014

Do I need to buy the textbook?Maybe. It's a "coursepack" written by another professor here at Biola, so it's only $19.25 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. TheFlatlandbook is $2.20 at the bookstore but also available online for free.
