## Math 293 texts, fall 1996

### Required Texts:

CALCULUS (9th ed) by Thomas and Finney (chapters 13 and 14).
DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS AND BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEMS by Edwards and Penney (Chapters 1-6).

MATLAB book: GETTING STARTED WITH MATLAB by Rudra Pratap (about $18) is recommended.
If you did not learn MATLAB well enough (or at all) in CS100 then you may want
to spend 3-5 hours slowly going through the tutorials in this book.
MATLAB is useful for many courses so you might consider purchase of the
STUDENT EDITION (about $60) for use on your own computer (about $2000) to help
with school in general (about $100,000).
