MAT1190/BIO1100

MAT1190/BIO1100

We all grow and heal due to cell divisions. But crazy cell divisions is dangerous…it is cancer. When US president Richard Nixon asked the scientists to join a “war on Cancer” back in 1972, we did not know much about cancer, although many were dying from this deadly disease. Since then a lot has been learned. With the help of statistics, probability, and modeling, we will explore the history of recognition of the disease as well as the types, possible causes, and other aspects of the nature of cancer. But remember….cancer has no answer!

WeBWorK Working Group

WeBWorK Working Group

This group is for faculty who are participating in the rollout of WeBWorK. We are working together to: Create instructional documents for the WeBWorK end-users (both faculty and students), Develop creative problems for core Math courses, Evolve existing problems in order to enhance their educational value to students, Streamline the management of the WeBWorK system, Provide technical support and respond to user feedback in order to improve everyone’s experience of WeBWorK.

2016-2017 Opening Gateways Faculty Seminar

2016-2017 Opening Gateways Faculty Seminar

“Opening Gateways to Completion: Open Digital Pedagogies for Student Success in STEM” is a 5-year, $3.2 million grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Supporting Hispanic-Serving Institutions program (Title V). The goal is to support student success in mathematics courses that serve as gateways to STEM disciplines, courses that often act as barriers to progress and completion in these disciplines. The project, awarded jointly to the New York City College of Technology (lead) and the Borough of Manhattan Community College (partner) in 2015, brings the two institutions together in a cross-campus collaboration that will introduce open-source digital technologies, open educational resources, and active learning pedagogies into the sequence of high-enrollment mathematics courses required for STEM disciplines at each college.
