This is the instructor web page for Math 113 sections 13-18 and 25-30. You can find out more about your instructor at Professor Perry's web page
For MA 113, you only need to buy only one textbook. If you plan on only taking Calculus I and II, then you need chapters 1-11. If you plan on taking Calculus I, II, and III, then you need chapters 1-16.
If you purchased your text from the University of Kentucky Bookstore, you will have access to an electronic copy of the text. I will give you the "class key" in lecture. For instructions on how to access the electronic copy, please go here.
You do not need to purchase a WebAssign access code. We will be using a free online homework system called WebWork.
In my lecture sections we will use REEF polling, an interactive system which works with laptops and cellphones to provide real-time polling (answering short questions) in lecture. This will help me interact better with you and better gauge how well you're understanding the lecture material. We will begin using the system during the second week of classes.
Please follow the left-hand link to REEF polling for instructions on how to purchase and set up a REEF account.
If you have already purchased a REEF account for CHEM 105, you do not need to purchase another one for Dr. Perry's sections of MA 113. Note that other sections of MA 113 are not using REEF polling

Consider a Minor in Mathematics If you are a science or engineering major, you will likely be taking a lot of math courses. It won't take too many more to graduate with a minor in Mathematics, which can help you be more competitive for good jobs or graduate schools.
