Starting this semester, there will not be a textbook. The courses will use a collection of handouts designed or selected by the department. The handouts are available as links from the course outlines and also from the MyOpenMath courses. After this semester, based on instructors' feedback, a text book will be created. Until then, we request that instructors do not mandate the use of a physical text book.

To supplement the current course material, instructors are free to use written explanations or videos from our previous text book, available online at (written text) (videos)
