WebAssign is an online, interactive environment for teaching and learning. Using WebAssign students will complete *Core Homework Problems* common to all sections; individual instructors may also assign additional homework. WebAssign also provides access to the text as an e-book. By department policy, homework will count at least 5% towards students' final course grade. The ground rules provided by your instructor will have further details.

You may begin using WebAssign on the first day of class. In order to access WebAssign after the 14-day grace period, you must purchase an access code as detailed below. If you purchased an access code in MATH 161 **or** MATH 162 **or** MATH 263 for the Stewart text in a previous semester, **do not purchase** a new code as the code you previously purchased remains valid.

**Instructions for students to obtain the e-book and to use WebAssign:** Once your instructor has uploaded the class roster to WebAssign, your personal class page will be activated. You will access it with your Loyola ID and password as detailed below. (*Note to returning students:* there is a change from previous semesters... you *no longer need a class key* to use WebAssign.)

- Go to www.webassign.net/luc/login.html (
*Note the change in URL from previous semesters.*) - Use the
**LOG IN @ LOYOLA UNIVERSITY CHICAGO**button in the center of the page. The LOG IN button in the upper right-hand corner**should NOT**be used. - Selecting the Loyola login button will bring you to a standard Loyola login page, where you will enter your Loyola ID and password.

### 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 100-level MATH courses (and others).

*Click here to see when it is offered this semester.*

## 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 660 and higher are encouraged to choose the Math 161/162 sequence.

### Installing Mathematica (free!)

Mathematica is a powerful computing environment that is designed for use in engineering, mathematics, finance, physics, chemistry, biology, and a wide range of other fields. Loyola students and faculty can download and install the latest copy of Mathematica for free. You must be logged on to Loyola VPN, and then visit the following ITS webpage, https://digitalmedia.luc.edu/News/NewsItem/View/4/mathematica-version-9-downloads-available.

### Wolfram Demonstrations Project

From the Wolfram Demonstrations Project. ". . . the Wolfram Demonstrations Project is an open-code resource that uses dynamic computation to illuminate concepts in science, technology, mathematics, art, finance, and a remarkable range of other fields.
