First Midterm Monday!

A reminder that we’ll have our first midterm exam this coming Monday (March 4), at the usual class time and place. As I said in class last week, it’ll cover all the sections from Chapters 1, 2 & 3 that we’ve covered so far.  I’ve posted the list of examples and exercises to focus on here (the same list I put on the blackboard in class on Wednesday).

Hello Math 1375/6578! Welcome & Get Started

Hi all,

I’ll be using this site and the associated course profile page on OpenLab for communicating with you about the course, and occasionally directing you to online resources that might help you.  You can also communicate with me & your classmates via the comments to posts here, and via the discussion forums on the course profile page.

The first thing you should do is set up an account on OpenLab if you haven’t already done so.  Here are some instructions pulled from this post by another math prof on how to do so:

You will need to do two things:

  1. 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.
  2. Once you have created an account on the OpenLab, log in and then join this particular course, Spring 2013 – MAT 1272 Statistics – Reitz [for our course, join MAT 1375 Precalculus – Spring 2013 – Ganguli].  To do this, first click the “Course Profile” link at the top left of this page (just under the picture) [which I’ve also linked to above].  Then click the “Join Now” button, which should appear just underneath the picture of the blackboard.

Problems with the OpenLab or with your CityTech email:

Please let me know if you run into any problems registering or joining our course (send me an email, jreitz@citytech.cuny.edu).  I also wanted to give you two resources to help out in the process:

1.  For problems with your citytech email account, contact the Student Computing Helpdesk, either in person, by phone, or by email:
