Calculus, by Thomas & Finney; pub Addison Wesley 9th: ISBN: 0201531747 , or Alternate: ISBN 0-321-19363-6 (These two editions are page-for-page identical.) 1. This textbook is in the FDLTCC bookstore at a modest price. 2. You can usually find used copies online at very reasonable prices, typically $4 to $10 at the lower end. Biblio.com and abebooks.com are two online book sellers which usually have low prices. 3. The instructor has some copies available for loan during the course.
You may have a calculator already, but make sure that it is a scientific calculator. If you need to buy one, I recommend a cheap calculator like a TI-30XS Multiview. This does what you need, and the bookstore sells them for under $20 . If you have a problem getting one, let me know. You need to have it available for all assignments. You do not need a more expensive graphing calculator, but, if you have one, it will be fine.
This is software like Mathematica and Maple which can do symbolic algebra, graphing, and many other mathematical things, but SageMath is free. A jupyter notebook with SageMath should be available later in this course; in the meanwhile, SageMathCell from the link above works well.

This course addresses FDLTCC liberal education requirements (Competencies Across the Curriculum) in problem solving and technology. You should come to class everyday! This is the easy way to do well in any course, and it is especially true for math classes. There are exercises in the text for you to do, and these are usually answered at the end of each chapter. You will also get homework assignments on handouts, and you should complete then hand these in at the beginning of the next class. You homework grade is based on completing and turning in these homework handouts. You will also get sample exams which will be similar in length and content to the in-class exams. Let me know if there is are accommodations you need for the class.
