My Courses

MATH1372 – Ganguli – Fall2019

MATH1372 – Ganguli – Fall2019

An introductory course in statistics and probability. Topics covered include descriptive statistics, sample spaces and probabilities, discrete probability distributions (Binomial, Hypergeometric), expectation and variance, continuous probability distributions (Normal, Student, Chi-Square), confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and correlation and linear regression. Spreadsheets are used throughout the semester.

MAT1375/D572 – Ganguli – Spring 2019

MAT1375/D572 – Ganguli – Spring 2019

This course is designed to prepare students for the study of Calculus. Topics include an in-depth study of functions such as polynomial functions, inverse functions, radical functions, rational functions, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions; solving inequalities; elements of vectors and complex numbers; solving trigonometric equations and identities involving sum, double and half-angle formulas; Binomial Theorem; and progressions. A graphing calculator is required.

Math 1272 – Statistics – Fall2013 – Ganguli

Math 1272 – Statistics – Fall2013 – Ganguli

An introduction to statistical methods and statistical inference. We will discuss such topics as descriptive statistics, random variables, distributions, sampling, estimation and inference, t-tests, chi-square tests and correlation.

2016 Fall – MAT 2071 Proofs and Logic – Reitz

2016 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 1375 Precalculus – Spring 2013 – Ganguli

MAT 1375 Precalculus – Spring 2013 – Ganguli

We will cover topics needed for calculus, focusing on algebraic and graphical approaches to functions. Topics include polynomial functions, inverse functions, radical functions, rational functions, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions; solving inequalities; vectors and complex numbers; sequences and series; and the Binomial Theorem.

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.
