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.

My Projects

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.

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!

Undergraduate Research
Undergraduate Research

Realizing the value of the research experience at the undergraduate level, this project is committed to fostering research opportunities for City Tech students. Faculty and students can use this project as a place to share announcements about research opportunities, as well as a place to offer information about the experiences students and faculty have had in their research endeavors. A handbook on effective mentoring, developed by the Undergraduate Research Committee, is currently in the revision stage, and will be available next semester.

First Year Experience Committee
First Year Experience Committee

As a committee we are working on enhancing our new student orientation process. We are assessing and enhancing all steps from the moment a student is accepted into the college to their first year experience. The departments involved in the pilot are: African American Studies, Architectural Technology, Computer Systems Technology, Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology, Dental Hygiene, English, Entertainment Technology, Hospitality Management, Human Services, Nursing, and Radiologic Technology & Medical Imaging.

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.
