City Tech’s Source for Academic Affairs Information

City Tech Math department WeBWorK Leaderboards

The City Tech math department has developed a unique leaderboard feature for our WeBWorK courses. WeBWorK sections which have achievements enabled automatically have a leaderboard which displays student progress – locally by individual section and globally across all sections for the course. Currently, MAT 1275, MAT 1275CO, MAT 1375, and MAT 1475 sections are participating. This site provides information about getting started in WeBWorK using achievements and leaderboards and insight into the benefits of doing so, along with updates on students’ progress throughout the semester.

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.

2019-2020 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.
