There is one required book for this course (which you may already own):

Hughes-Hallett, Deborah, et al. Applied & Single Variable Calculus for Loyola University Chicago with WebAssign Custom(packaged with WebAssign). 4th ed. ISBN-13: 9781118762202. Hoboken, NJ: Wiley, 2009. Print.

Students that have taken Math 131 in Fall 2013 and purchased a new copy of the text bundled with WebAssign access code do not need to purchase any additional materials.   

Otherwise, the required text above is a customized text that students can only purchase by one of the following methods:

  • From the University Bookstore (http://www.luc.edu/info/bookstore.shtml). ($190.25, includes Math 131 and Math 132 access to WebAssign)
  • Directly through the publisher (Wiley) website. www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-817162.html. It will take about 3 days from order date for students to receive a softcover book by mail. This should not present a problem, as students will have two weeks of open access to WebAssign. ($152.95 plus $4 shipping charge, includes Math 131 and Math 132 access to WebAssign, 20% discount from bookstore price). 
  • Visiting WebAssign’s website (http://www.webassign.net). Students will need the Class Key which will be of the form luc #### ####.  Students who purchase “materials” through WebAssign will not receive a copy of the softcover text. Instead students can purchase access to homework and an electronic version of the full text that can only be accessed online after signing into WebAssign (it cannot be downloaded onto an a device such as Kindle or iPad). Note WebAssign charges by the semester. This means if a student purchased WebAssign access to Math 131directly through WebAssign for $89.70 in the previous semester, they will still need to pay an additional $89.70 for WebAssign access to Math 132 again this semester. ($89.70 per semester for WebAssign, no physical textbook.)

We stress that the required Math 132 text has been customized specifically for use at Loyola University Chicago. There are several publisher versions of calculus texts by the same author that students are certain to come across if they search Amazon or elsewhere online. Although these may be cheaper, any such versions (new or old) are different than the required text, and thus not a substitute.  

WebAssign acces is required for the course. Students who experience delays or difficulties in getting their textbooks or setting up their WebAssign accounts need not fall behind. Free trial access to this homework and eBook system has been arranged. Trial access to WebAssign expires on January 24.

Loyola Math Club Tutoring

The Loyola Math Club offers free tutoring to students in Math 132 (and other courses).  Further details regarding the important information of where and when will be posted once announced.

WileyPLUS is an online, interactive environment for teaching and learning.  As part of the required text for MATH 132, you are asked to purchase an access code for WileyPLUS.  This access code is active for up to one year, and you may be able to reuse your access code if you completed Math 131 in Spring 2012 at no additional cost.  Many sections of MATH 132 will use WileyPLUS as a required homework component of the final course grade. 

Follow the steps below to register for your section in WileyPLUS:

  1. Go to the WileyPLUS homepage.
  2. In the Students section of the homepage, click on the Get started button.
  3. Enter LOYOLA UNIV - CHICAGO as the school name and click Find.
  4. Click the plus sign next to APPLIED CALCULUS I & II to expand the section list.
  5. Click on your section.
  6. Create a WileyPLUS account or log in using an existing account.
  7. If you have purchased a hard copy of the text with the access code, enter your code to register for the course.  Otherwise you can purchase a code (for $75.00).

Note:  All students may register for WileyPLUS immediately, even if you have not received your copy from the bookstore at the start of the semester.  If you have not received an access code by January 28, you will no longer have access to WileyPLUS.

Should you choose Math 161-162 or Math 131-132?

Any questions about placement in calculus or other 100- and 200-level courses which remain after reading this section should be directed to Professor John Del Greco, Assistant Chair. Please e-mail him to set up an appointment.

Math 161-162 (Calculus I, Calculus II) is a traditional calculus course covering all the basic topics of one-variable calculus. This sequence is a prerequisite for Multivariable Calculus (Math 263) as well as for almost all higher-level math courses. It is required for all students majoring in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics and Chemistry. It is highly recommended, although not required, for students majoring in Economics, Computer Science and Biology.

Math 131-132 (Applied Calculus I, Applied Calculus II) is more of a survey course covering many of the basic topics in one-variable calculus as well as some topics in multivariable calculus and differential equations. It is a terminal course in that it does not satisfy the prerequisites of upper-level mathematics and statistics courses. Students who enjoyed mathematics in high school and earned ACT math scores of 28 and higher or SAT math scores of 610 and higher are encouraged to choose the Math 161-162 sequence.
