Re: CAS suggestions

How greedy can they get, that they are selling a book that is in the public domain.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: CAS suggestions

Anyways, it is a great book which requires special attention and popularity. It is what taught me calculus the first time 3 years ago.

Hi Agnishom;

I was referring to Amazon, who is selling the book.

They should give the book for no cost to every household. That way everyone has access to this invaluable teaching resource.

Re: CAS suggestions

Yes, it might be a good idea to download the book. Takes only a couple of minutes even with a modem. That way you can read it when you are offline.

Re: CAS suggestions

I have an ereader but scarcely use it. I prefer books (any print material) but I do sometimes read electronically.
