Test #1

Thursday, March 8; will cover material/homework from sessions 1-9 on the course outline. Questions will be similar to quiz questions and to those found in the textbook homework and Webwork and on the final exam review sheet.

Test #1 Review

This is an OpenLab assignment for you to complete. Choose one question from the textbook homework on the course outline to complete and post your full solution on the OpebLab. Title your post “Test #1 Review” and add the section and problem number. Add the category Test #1 Review before submitting your post. Make sure nobody has submitted your problem already; try to make sure every section that will be on Test #1 is represented. Comment on others’ posts if you have a question about their work.

The idea here is that you as a class are creating a review sheet for everyone to study from for the first test. You will be given participation credit for this post.

Due date: Tuesday, March 6 by 10am

Welcome and homework

Welcome to your MAT 1275 OpenLab site! All course information is posted here. Please take a look around.

Homework #0:

Your first assignment is to add yourself to our OpenLab course and to submit a post introducing yourself to the class. Your post is due by 10 am on Tuesday, February 5.

  1. Sign up for an OpenLab account using your CityTech email address.
  2. After you’ve logged in, add yourself to our MAT 1275 class.
  3. From the class OpenLab site you can create a new post by clicking the symbol that looks like a + sign inside a circle at the top of the screen.
  4. Title your post “Introducing [your first name] [your last name].” (You may use just initials if you like, as long as there’s enough information for me to locate you on my official roster.)
  5. From the categories on the right-hand side of the screen, make sure to select “Introduce yourself” so that the rest of us can locate your post later.
  6. Tell us anything you’d like us to know about you! Some suggestions are…
    • Your major
    • How you became interested in your major
    • Which math classes you’ll take after MAT 1275 (if you don’t know, you can check your program requirements in the college catalog here)
    • What you hope to do after you graduate from CityTech; short-term goals, long-term goals, whatever…
    • What you hope to get out of this course (I don’t mean which grade you want!)
    • Other interests/hobbies you have
    • What your favorite animal is
  7. Read and comment on at least one your classmates’ posts. (Note: the administrator will have to approve your comments, so don’t worry if they don’t appear right away.)

Homework #1:

Your first Webwork assignment consists of four short sets. Answers are due by 02/05/2018 at 11:59pm.

  • ReducingRationalExpressions
  • AddRationalExpressions
  • AddRationalExpressions2
  • IntegerExponents

To log into Webwork, follow this link.

  • Your login name is your first initial + your last name. For example, if your name is Barack Obama, your login name is bobama. (If your last name has a space or a hyphen, delete it.) All letters are lower case.
  • Your password is your CUNY ID number.

Click on the homework set’s name to view the problems. Click on individual problems and enter your answer. After you have entered an answer, the system will tell you if it is correct. Make sure you have entered all your answers before the deadline. There is nothing else for you to do after that.

Here are some tips: WeBWorK Guide for Students.

Quiz #1

Your first quiz will be given at the beginning of class on Thursday, February 8. It will be based on material/exercises from Sessions 1 and 2.
