Calculus, Applications and Technology (3rd edition) by Edmond C. Tomastik, bundled with WebAssign code.

There are three ways to purchase the text and the WebAssign access code:

  1. Get the text and WebAssign access code bundled together (at a substantial discount) from the publisher's special website.
  2. Get the text and WebAssign access code bundled together at the UConn Co-op.
  3. Get the text separately from anywhere, and buy the WebAssign access code when you access your homework through HuskyCT.

We do not recommend using the third option above, because if you buy the WebAssign access code separately then you will have to buy it for 95 dollars for one semester of calculus or 110 dollars for two or three semesters of calculus; by comparison, the cost of the book and WebAssign access code bundled together (from the publisher's website or from the UConn Co-op) is less than 95 dollars. The option to buy the text and WebAssign access code bundled together lets you use that access code for the life of the edition of the textbook.

If you purchase a code for WebAssign from WebAssign, then please note that the code will appear to be for a different book (Finite Mathematics and Applied Calculus - 5e by Waner and Costenoble). The reason this discrepancy exists is because the current Tomastik book is not currently available as an e-book but it was necessary to select some book for access code purposes only.
