Hi everyone,

WeBWorK is accessible from on and off campus (anywhere you have access to the internet). Your first WeBWorK assignment is due on Tuesday, September 3rd, at midnight, and will cover the material from the second day of class. Here’s what you have to do:

**Assignment. **To get started , you must complete the following three steps.

**Step 1. ***Log in to WeBWorK* here: http://mathww.citytech.cuny.edu/webwork2/MAT2071-F19-Reitz. I have created Usernames and Passwords for each student registered for my class.

**Username. **Your username for WeBWorK consists of your first initial plus your last name, all lowercase (for example, John Smith would have username ‘jsmith’).

**Password. **Your password is your Student ID (EmplID in CUNYFirst).

**Step 2. *** Update your email address if you wish*. To do this, select “Password/Email” from the main menu on the left. Use whatever email address you like (I suggest using one that you check often).

**Step 3. ***Complete the first assignment*, titled **Assignment1-Sec1.2-1.3****.** Click on an assignment on the main screen to get started.

If you have any trouble – either with logging in, or with completing the assignment, post a comment here or send me an email and I will get back to you.

**WeBWorK Tips:**

- Click on a problem to see the details (the list of problems appears in the menu on the left). Enter an answer and hit “Submit Answers”. Don’t worry, if you get it wrong you can try it again.
- You can work on the problems in any order you wish. You can do some problems now, and come back and do the rest another day (your work will be saved, as long as you submit your answers).
- If you want to print out a copy of the assignment, click on the assignment name in the main menu on the left, and then click the link in the main screen area that reads “Download a hardcopy of this homework set.”

For the past several years I have taught this same course in the Fall semester. At the end of each course, I give my students the following assignment:

Imagine that you are invited to speak on the first day of MAT 2071, to give advice to entering students. Write at least three sentences … describing what you would tell them.

To see the assignment and the students’ responses, follow this link for Fall 2018 and this link for Fall 2017.

Your assignment, due at the beginning of class on Tuesday, September 3th, is to:

- Read through ALL the responses (there are 25 of them altogether).
- Write a reply to this post (1 paragraph) responding to all of the following:
- What advice seemed most relevant to you personally? Why? (you can copy/paste a short statement, or put it in your own words)
- Based on this advice, what changes can you make right now to help you succeed in this course?

**Extra Credit. **For extra credit, write a response to one of your classmates’ comments. Do you have any advice? *Be kind.*

Hi everyone,

Your first homework assignment consists of some problems from the book, as well as a WeBWorK assignment – these are due on Tuesday (written work must be handed in in class, WeBWorK must be completed online by the end of the day). Your first OpenLab Assignment is due next Tuesday, September 3 (future OpenLab assignments will generally be due on Thursday – the due date for the first assignment is unusual as Thursday, September 5th, runs on a Monday schedule).

Welcome back,

Prof. Reitz

This course is MAT 2071, Introduction to Proofs and Logic, taking place in the Fall 2019 semester with Professor Reitz. We will be using this website in a variety of ways this semester – as a central location for information about the course (assignments, review sheets, policies, and so on), a place to write about the work we are doing, to ask and answer questions, to post examples of our work, and to talk about logic, proofs, mathematics, reality and so on.

**Getting Started**

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. However, only registered users can create new posts and participate in the discussion boards.

**How do I register?**

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 for signing up on the OpenLab can be found here.
- Once you have created an account on the OpenLab,
**log in and then join this particular course**, 2019 Fall – MAT 2071 Proofs and Logic – Reitz. To do this, first click the “Course Profile” link at the top left of this page (just under the picture). Then click the “Join Now” button, which should appear just underneath the picture there.

**Problems with the OpenLab or with your CityTech email:**
