New Textbook Policy: To limit the cost of course materials, my usual textbook policy has been to allow students (whenever possible) to use the previous edition of the textbook. That means a student could typically get the materials for one of my courses for less than $25. I developed this policy before textbooks had online homework software packages. These can be an important tool for learning. Considering the availability of these tools, I have slightly amended my policy:
If the course does not require an online software package, you may continue to use the previous edition of the textbook; if there is an online software package available, and I think that it is important to require it in the class, I will only do so if the total cost of all required material is less than $150.
