WebAssign is an online, interactive environment for teaching and learning. As part of the required text for MATH 131/132, you are asked to purchase an access code for WebAssign. This access code may be (re)used for MATH 131 and MATH 132 at no additional charge.

By department policy, all sections of MATH 131 and MATH 132 require online homework on "Core Problems; " this course component should count at least 5% towards students' final course grade. (The ground rules document provided by your instructor will have further details.) 

If you have received(*) a Class Key from your instructor or otherwise, follow the steps below to register for your section in WebAssign:

  1. From www.webassign.net, click on “I have a Class Key” in the “Account Log In” box (https://www.webassign.net/v4cgi/selfenroll/classkey.html) and enter luc ABCD WXYZ (where ABCD WXYZ is an eight-digit number provided to you by your instructor).
  2. If the correct class and section is listed, click Yes, this is my class. (Else, see WebAssign Support for help getting started.)
  3. If you do not already have a WebAssign account, check I need to create a WebAssign account and click Continue. Otherwise, check I already have a WebAssign account and enter your username, institution, and password. The institution is luc all in lowercase. (NOTE: For roster management purposes, it would be helpful if you choose your LoyolaID when setting up your WebAssign account.)
  4. At this point, you will have three choices:
    • Enter an access code purchased at the Loyola Bookstore or from the Cengage website,
    • Purchase an access code online from WebAssign, or
    • Continue the 14 day free trial. (**)
    Select the appropriate choice to access the e-book and homework assignments.

FURTHER NOTES: (*)If you registered for your section more than one week before the start of classes, then you should receive an email with Class Key from the department no later than the Friday before classes begin. Students without a Class Key by the start of classes can get this information from their instructor.

(**) Students may register for their WebAssign course immediately, even without an access code. Open enrollment closes two weeks after the semester begins.

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

Any questions about placement in calculus or other 100-level courses that remain after reading that section should be directed to John Houlihan, Mathematics Placement Director. Please e-mail him to set up an appointment.

Math 161/162 (Calculus I, Calculus II) is a traditional calculus sequence 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 Chemistry, Engineering Science, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics. It is highly recommended, although not required, for students majoring in Biology, Computer Science and Economics.

Math 131/132 (Applied Calculus I, Applied Calculus II) is more of a survey sequence 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 sequence 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.
