This course is MAT 1180, Mathematical Concepts and Applications, taking place in the Summer 2012 semester with Professor Reitz. We will be using this website in several different ways – as a central location for information about the course (assignments, review sheets, policies, and so on), a place to ask and answer questions, to post examples of our work, and to talk about statistics, education, reality and other false premises.
Take a look around and familiarize yourself with the site. Use the links at the top of the page (in the black bar just underneath the cool picture) to navigate around — there isn’t too much here, yet. Your first OpenLab assignment is due on Wednesday (OpenLab Assignment #1: Mathography). Scroll down to see it, or click the “Assignments” link above. Your first WeBWorK (homework) assignment is due Monday — for complete details, see the post Getting Started With WeBWorK (below).
Do I need to register?
Short answer: No. Anyone on the internet can look around the site and see what we are doing, and even leave a comment on one of the pages, and these are the only things that will be required of you during this class. However, registering has benefits: you will receive automatic emails when new assignments and other items are posted, and the process of leaving comments and asking questions requires a little less work (you don’t have to keep entering your name etc each time you comment).
If I want to register, how do I do it?
To register, you must be a CityTech student with a citytech email address. You will need to do two things:
- If you have not used the openlab before, you must first create an account (you will need access to your citytech email address for this). Detailed instructions can be found by following this link to the help pages, finding the “Especially For Students” section about halfway down the page, and then looking at the first link “Getting Started with the OpenLab and Joining Your Courses.”
- Once you have created an account on the openlab, log in and then join this particular course. To do this, go to the main course page, (or click the “Course Profile” link at the top left of this page), and click the “Join Now” link on the right side of the screen.
