Books for Summer 2014


The PC Bookstore has the list of books for my classes. Students  occasionally ask: "Do I need all of the books? And do I need the iClicker too?"  The answer is an emphatic YES! they are all required, including the iClicker. We will begin using the clicker on the very first day of class -- those who come prepared that day get bonus points. You may choose to buy the original iClicker, the updated iClicker+, or the iClicker 2; any of them will work.  Unfortunately, your iPhone or Android phone will not work even with the app;  phone apps are for web based polling and I cannot guarantee adequate wireless capacity or web bandwidth in the classroom to run that system.
