The textbook for this class is Applied Calculus (6th Edition) by Hughes-Hallett et. al.


You will be given weekly homework assignments via the WileyPlus Online Homework System. Typically homework assignments will be made available the Monday of the week that the corresponding sections are scheduled to be covered and will be due at 11:00pm on the Wednesday following the lecture week. Late submissions will not be accepted.

To sign up for this system, you will need a WileyPlus registration code.

  • If you buy a new text book, make sure to buy the book bundled with WileyPlus code.
  • If you buy a used book, you need to buy the WileyPlus registration code separately. You can directly purchase the code from the WileyPlus website; you should also be able to buy the code alone from URI book store.
  • Your WileyPlus code comes with an electronic version of the text book in your WileyPlus account.
You register for the WileyPLUS system by going to the URL that is unique to your section of MTH 131, so do not sign up for WileyPLUS until you are sure which section of MTH 131 you are taking.


A basic graphing calculator (such as the TI-83, TI-84, or TI-86) is required. Graphing calculators such as the TI-89, TI-Nspire, or similar are forbidden.

Below is a short list of acceptable graphing calculators and a short list of strictly forbidden graphing calculators. There are many different models of graphing calculators out there. If you do not see your model listed here and you are unsure if it is approved for use in MTH 131, you MUST consult your instructor for verification. The use of a forbidden calculator on any exam or quiz will be considered cheating and will result in a grade of 0 for that assessment.
