Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 9th Edition
Multi-term or Single-term Enhanced WebAssign & Electronic Textbook Access
Students purchase a WebAssign license which includes access to the electronic version of the textbook and WebAssign assignments. WebAssign assignments are part of the marking scheme for the course.
Access to WebAssign and the Stewart 9th edition electronic textbook continues for the duration of departmental use of the 9th edition. Multi-term WebAssign access purchased for MATH 150/151 or 152 in the Fall 2022 term or Spring 2023 terms will continue to be valid for use in MATH 251 and no further WebAssign purchase will be required.
Buying a hard copy of a previous edition of this textbook will not provide access to the current 9th Edition Stewart WebAssign problems.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
