## My Courses

MAT 1630 Introduction to Computational Science, FA2019

A project-based introduction to computational thinking and problem solving. Covers a wide range of topics, including data visualization, statistical techniques, simulations of dynamical systems, computational techniques to understand data, using regression to fit models to data, as well as an introduction to some more advanced topics: Monte Carlo simulations, optimization, dynamic programming, image processing, natural language processing, geospatial data analysis and current data science.

Topics in course Calculus 1 include functions, limits, differentiation, and tangent lines, L’Hôpital’s Rule, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and Applications.

This is the first of a three-semester sequence of calculus-based physics course that is the foundation to further studies in engineering and technology. The first semester introduces students to concepts and principles of classical mechanics and thermodynamics. Topics include kinematics, Newton’s laws of motion and universal gravitation, work and energy, rotational motion, vibrations, fluids, heat and laws of thermodynamics. Calculus and vector methods are used throughout the course. Computer-based laboratory component of the course illustrates and supplements the lecture material.

Topics include functions, limits, differentiation, and tangent lines, L’Hôpital’s Rule, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and Applications.

## My Projects

Python is a popular programming language that emphasizes readability. In this four-day workshop, we will cover the basics in python and spend time on interesting applications in mathematics, biology, statistics, and more.

## My Clubs

Weekly math seminar with presentations accessible to undergraduates.

What do mathematicians do? Can mathematics be fun and interesting? Do you like free pizza? The Math Club is open to everyone with an interest in logic puzzles, games of chance or strategy, and mathematics in general. We host a variety of math related events, math talks, math games, math puzzles, field trips, math competitions, and more. Feel free to stop by on Thursdays in Namm N719, from 1-2pm.

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). LSAMP or AMP aims to increase the percentage of CUNY students enrolled in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors who conduct faculty mentored research prior to graduating or entering industry. Participants of LSAMP receive a stipends up to $4000. The funding is great, but the research experience (locally and abroad) and recommendation letters that participants receive are greater.

The National Society of Black Engineers

The society’s mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community
