*Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, 4th Edition*is the current textbook for Calculus I, II, and III (MTH 2300, 2310, 2320).

- "Official policy" is that a graphing calculator is required for Calculus I-III. However in some sections they may only be used on exams or for an occasional in-class calculation. If you already own a graphing calculator that you are comfortable with, you do NOT need to buy a particular model unless your instructor specifically says so.
- Department policy forbids the use of calculators capable of symbolic calculus on the common final exams of MTH 2300 and MTH 2310. Your instructor will likely also forbid them on midterm exams; ask if you are uncertain.

- All sections of MTH 2300 and MTH 2310 on Main Campus, including evening sections, take common final exams during the final exam time period designated for Mathematics Common Examinations as scheduled by the Registrar.
