SIAM Offers Solution to Costly Textbooks

1 June 2011 No Comment

If you’re an instructor, you know students don’t want to pay a lot for their course texts, which means you struggle to find affordable texts for your courses. If you’re a student, you need your book funds to stretch as far as they can. That’s why SIAM, joint publisher of the ASA-SIAM Series on Statistics and Applied Probability, has enacted the Textbook Adoption Discount Program, which offers students 20% off list price for any SIAM book adopted as a primary text for an undergraduate- or graduate-level course. This discount may be used by all students enrolled in the course and is available only on books ordered directly from SIAM.

Instructors: Browse the SIAM catalog to see if any of our titles suit your course. We encourage you to comb through all of SIAM’s titles to find one that’s just right for your students, but if you’d like to narrow your search, we also offer a textbooks-only page that sorts books by category.

If you adopt an ASA-SIAM series book or any SIAM title as a primary text, you should apply for the discount before the semester begins by contacting Sara Murphy at murphy@siam.org with your request and providing a copy of your syllabus. You’ll be given a discount code to share with your students so they can order their textbooks from SIAM and save 20% off list price.

Students: If you are an ASA member, you can always get the 30% member discount on books in the ASA-SIAM series by ordering directly from SIAM. SIAM members get 30% off any SIAM title. If you’re not a member of either organization, encourage your instructors to take advantage of the Textbook Adoption Discount Program so you can save 20% off list price for your required texts.
