You can access your email by going to the following web site: http://campus.citytech.cuny.edu/. For help with accessing email, you can also send an email to helpdesk@campus.citytech.cuny.edu. In case of emergency, you can call 718-254-8565 or email: epak@citytech.cuny.edu or rhoque@citytech.cuny.edu for technical help. Theme: Biodiversity: Eco-Math link through Linear Algebra A Brief Introduction Biodiversity and the Hudson River Flowing from the Lake Tear of the Clouds, North the Hudson River journeys 315 miles and drops 4,322 feet in elevation before emptying itself into New York Harbor. The Hudson River is home to diverse populations of fish, birds, and mammals that cohabit and compete among themselves for resources. Recently the American shad, Atlantic sturgeon, river herring (blue back herring and alewife), American eel, and largemouth bass are in decline. Intense economic harvesting pressure and overexploitation cause coastal and marine species to decline. Therefore, harvesting and fishing should be managed properly and carefully to avoid decline of current population. Food web analysis provides important information regarding the nature of competition among various organisms. Cluster analysis in graph theory is a popular method to seek partition of a given data set into several clusters so that the data points within the same cluster are more similar than those belonged in the separate clusters. In this project we will use cluster analysis using the concepts of linear algebra to study the competition among various species in a given food web, in particular, competition among various Hudson River species. Students will find a partition of the competition graphs based on the Hudson River food web such that the strength of competition (for shared preys) between two clusters (two groups of predators) is as low as possible; however, the strength of competition within the same clusters is as high as possible. Big Idea behind this project Study and analyze Hudson River Food Web and its competition graph to interpret the strength of species competition. Particularly we will be exploring the followings: • Which predator species are more connected than others? • What happens if a specific species (particularly, a prey) dies out? Particularly, how does the removal of a particular species affect its predators and also the overall competition among all predator species? I Students Learning Outcomes 1. To solve systems of linear equations using matrices. 2. To identify and use vector properties (spaces, subspaces, bases, inner product). 3. To identify properties of matrices (inevitability, eigenvalues, eigenvectors). 4. To use computer technology to solve problems. 5. To learn how to apply core mathematical concepts (particularly eigenvalues and eigenvectors) in solving real-world problems. 7. To understand interdisciplinary approach and the significance of it in real-world applications. General Education Learning Goals 1. To understand interdisciplinary approach and the significance of it in real-world applications. 2. To address a problem and resolve the problem with scientific methods.

BIO2311 Anatomy & Physiology I, Fall 2016

BIO2311 Anatomy & Physiology I, Fall 2016

This is the first part of a two semester course. It covers the anatomy and physiology of the cell, tissues, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems of the human body. This course includes Lab, where concepts and theories presented in Lecture will be applied.

LIB 1201: Research and Documentation for the Information Age Spring 2012

LIB 1201: Research and Documentation for the Information Age Spring 2012

In this course we will explore issues in research and documentation for text (in print and online), images, sound, and multimedia. You will investigate where information comes from and how it is organized in both traditional and emerging media. We will examine the ethics of information use and determine how to critically evaluate sources. Throughout the course, you will create and present research and documentation projects using traditional and emerging media and technologies. This is a writing-intensive course. You should expect to spend 4-6 hours outside of class time preparing for class each week.

Nutrition (Bio 3524)

Nutrition (Bio 3524)

This course will be based on the study of nutrient constituents of foods, metabolism of nutrients in the body and their role in the human body. We will put special emphasis on specific health problems, especially those involving nutritional deficiencies. Through this course students will develop an understanding of the fundamental principles of nutrition necessary to improve and maintain health, to prevent illness and to provide support and therapy during illness.
