My Courses

MAT1575 Calculus II, Spring 2015

MAT1575 Calculus II, Spring 2015

A continuation of Calculus I (i.e., MAT 1475). The course begins with integration: definition of definite and indefinite integrals, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, techniques of integration, improper integrals, and applications of integrals to areas, volumes and arc lengths. The latter half of the course covers Taylor polynomials, the Mean Value Theorem, infinite sequences and series, tests of convergence, and Taylor series.

2015 Fall – MAT 2071 Proofs and Logic – Reitz

2015 Fall – MAT 2071 Proofs and Logic – Reitz

This course is designed to prepare students for an advanced mathematics curriculum by providing a transition from Calculus to abstract mathematics. The course focuses on the processes of mathematical reasoning, argument, and discovery. Topics include propositional and first order logic, learning proofs through puzzles and games, axiomatic approach to group theory, number theory, and set theory, abstract properties of relations and functions, elementary graph theory, sets of different cardinalities, and the construction and properties of real numbers.

MAT 1175 – Fundamentals of Mathematics

Topics include linear and quadratic functions, intermediate algebra, plane geometry and trigonometry of the right triangle.

Spring 2013 – MAT 1272 Statistics – Reitz

Spring 2013 – MAT 1272 Statistics – Reitz

This course provides an introduction to statistical methods and statistical inference. Topics include descriptive statistics, random variables, distributions, sampling, estimation and inference, t-tests, chi-square tests and correlation.

My Projects

The Buzz

The Buzz

Welcome to The Buzz, a project by your student community team. The Buzz is student blogging site dedicated to all things CityTech–from how to handle the pressures of school, to what movies to see. One of our student writers will post something three times each week, so check back often to join the discussion! And be sure to join the project to get regular updates!

Opening Gateways Project Management

Opening Gateways Project Management

This is a private group for members of the management team of “Opening Gateways to Completion: Open Digital Pedagogies for Student Success in STEM,” a Title V Cooperative Arrangement grant funded through U.S. Department of Education’s Supporting Hispanic-Serving Institutions program. The project, a collaboration between City Tech and the Borough of Manhattan Community College, is focussed on using Open Digital Pedagogies to increase student success in gateway mathematics courses for STEM disciplines.

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.

My Clubs

Student Government Association

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association is the representative body for students. We are responsible for recommending student activity fee allocations, shaping policies affecting student life, coordinating extracurricular events and chartering new organizations. Feel free to contact SGA President, Lucas Almonte, with any questions, suggestions or concerns. He can be reached at SGAPresident@CityTech.Cuny.Edu If you wish to start a club on campus contact SGA Vice President, Sylwester Dombroski, at SGAVP@CityTech.Cuny.Edu

Math Club

Math Club

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.
