Center for Tutoring and Academic Excellence

The Center for Tutoring & Academic Excellence offers free collaborative learning opportunities that include small group tutoring and tutor-led study halls to Loyola students. To learn more or request tutoring services, visit the Center for Tutoring & Academic Excellence online at http://www.luc.edu/tutoring.

Loyola Math Club Tutoring

The Loyola Math Club offers free tutoring to students in Math 132 (and other courses). 

Math Club tutoring for Spring 2016 will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-8:30pm in Cuneo Hall Room 111.

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 is active for up to one year, so you may be able to reuse your access code (at no additional cost) if you have enrolled in either course the previous semester.

NOTE:  Many sections of MATH 131/132 use WebAssign as a required homework component of the final course grade, so even if your instructor this semester does not, it may still be prudent to purchase an access code.

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. See WebAssign Support for help getting started.
  3. For roster management purposes, it would be helpful if you choose your LoyolaID when setting up your WebAssign account.

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

Some instructors may be using WeBWorK for required, online homework submission (instead of WileyPLUS).  Your instructor will provide you with the required username and password needed to login to your section's page.  You can view the list of available courses/sections for which WeBWorK will be used this semester be clicking on any of the WeBWorK hyperlinks.

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.
