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.

Math 1372 – Statistics with Probability – Fall 2014

Math 1372 – Statistics with Probability – Fall 2014

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.

MAT1275 – Ganguli – Spring2018

MAT1275 – Ganguli – Spring2018

An intermediate algebra course. Topics include quadratic equations, systems of linear equations, exponential and logarithmic functions, and topics from trigonometry including identities, equations and solutions of triangles.

2018-2019 Opening Gateways Faculty Seminar

2018-2019 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.
