# Textbooks

A number of print and electronic resources for GVSU Mathematics Department courses have been written by GVSU's own mathematics faculty. Below are links to those resources.

## Textbooks

- Active Prelude to Calculus, by M. Boelkins -- used in MTH 124
*A**ctive Calculus*Single Variable by M. Boelkins, D. Austin, & S. Schlicker (free PDF or Google Docs download) -- used in MTH 201 (Calculus) and MTH 202 (Calculus 2)- Active Calculus Multivariable, by S. Schlicker, D. Austin, & M. Boelkins -- used in MTH 203 (Calculus 3)
*Mathematical Reasoning: Writing and Proof*by T. Sundstrom (free PDF download) -- used in MTH 210 (Communicating in Mathematics)*Trigonometry*by T, Sundstrom & S. Schlicker (free PDF download - used in MTH 123)- Trigonometry by Katherine Yoshiwara (free PDF download - used in MTH 123)
*An Inquiry-Based Introduction to Linear Algebra and Applications*, by F. Alayont and S. Schlicker. "The first two thirds of this text introduces linear algebra through matrix algebra with an emphasis on applications. The text is used in a freshman level two course linear algebra sequence. The last third of the text focuses on abstract vector spaces and their applications."*Linear Algebra and Applications: An Inquiry-Based Approach*, by F. Alayont and S. Schlicker. This textbook was used for a traditional two-semester linear algebra course with application projects included in each section.- Understanding Linear Algebra by D. Austin available at https://www.gvsu.edu/s/0Cl
- Special Topics in Mathematics (MTH 180) by Charlene Beckmann available at https://scholarworks.gvsu.edu/books/25/
