This assignment was designed for students in the pathways introductory chemistry class and the first year seminar and aligns with the Inquiry and Problem Solving core competency. In this context, there is a focus on framing the issues (identifies and/or addresses questions and problems), evidence gathering (assembles, reviews and synthesizes evidence from several diverse sources), evidence (analyze the data to address the questions posed) and conclusions (critical thinking, reflect on the outcomes, draw conclusions and generate new knowledge). There is also a Global Learning component based on comparing data collected locally with corresponding data from other locations or countries. The assignment includes the written communication ability with a focus on "Content Development and Organization," as well as the clarity of the communication and its purpose. The overall aim of this assignment is to enhance students' conceptual learning and understanding of key issues related to society as well as their course. This assignment was developed as part of a LaGuardia Global Learning mini-grant and CUNY Experiential Learning and Research in the Classroom mini-grants.
The assignment will be scaffolded over about 3 weeks and is worth about 10% of the final grade.
To further increase the success of this assignment, instructors might want to consider the following: Use class discussions to focus on the relevance and importance of conceptual learning. In order to improve the data analysis aspect, incorporating class demonstrations of how to conduct the analysis and guide discussions about what the data means. Giving students more detailed rubrics with formal expectations of the requirements of the assignments, particularly in the written format Find ways to increase student participation in class discussions.
When this assignment has been utilized in previous semesters, students clearly displayed the capability to relate the co-curricular experiences in the data collection and its analysis to concepts and ideas covered during class. Evidence for this came from very dynamic and interactive class discussions based on air pollution as well as from the output of the written assignment, in which students were able to relate the nature, sources and chemical properties of the pollutants to their impact on the environment, health and society in general.
LaGuardia's Core Competencies and Communication Abilities
List the Program Goal(s) that this assignment targets
Global Learning based on comparing pollutant levels around the LaGuardia campus with those in other locations or countries. It is also an IPS assignment, incorporating scientific literacy and thinking, as students need to analyze the data, interpret it and reflect on the outcomes.
List the Student Learning Objective(s) that this assignment targets
Identify and apply fundamental chemical concepts and methods. Gather, analyze, and interpret data.
List the Course Objectives(s) that this assignment targets
Explore the complex connections between chemistry and society. Apply chemical principles to real world issues, including ethical aspects. Gather, analyze, and interpret data.
Write a short description of the pedagogy involved in executing this assignment
Students collect and analyze the data, interpret the results in terms of pollution levels, safety and ethics and compare with EPA standard levels and with levels in other countries.
Outside the classroom events will be organized for data collection. There will be class and group-based discussions focused on the data, its analysis and the connections to society.

This two week assignment asks students to interpret and analyze the 1974 Arecibo Message sent by Drake and Sagan. Week 1 introduces the concepts behind the construction of the message and engages with a critical analysis of the architecture and the contents of the message. Week 2 asks students to develop software in a Jupyter Notebook (available for free from the Anaconda Python Distribution) to interpret messages that were similar to those produced by Drake and Sagan.

Arithmetic | Algebra provides a customized open-source textbook for the math developmental students at New York City College of Technology. The book consists of short chapters, addressing essential concepts necessary to successfully proceed to credit-level math courses. Each chapter provides several solved examples and one unsolved Exit Problem. Each chapter is also supplemented by its own WeBWork online homework assignment. The book can be used in conjunction with WeBWork for homework (online) or with the Arithmetic | Algebra Homework handbook (traditional). The content in the book, WeBWork and the homework handbook are also aligned to prepare students for the CUNY Elementary Algebra Final Exam (CEAFE).

Emphasis on teaching and learning involving rational fractions, decimals and percents, measurement/geometry, probability and data interpretation. Interdisciplinary approaches involving mathematics and science, social studies and literacy. Diagnostic techniques, and adaptation of materials and methods for special needs learners. Introduction to research paradigms in mathematics education.

This course is one in a sequence of four education courses deigned for teachers specializing in mathematics in grades K-6. The first two courses (CBSE 7400T and CBSE 7401T) focus on research-based methodology for teaching mathematics and its use in the classroom. CBSE 7401T deals mainly with methodology for teaching topics related to rational numbers, decimals and percents measurement and geometry.

This is the first of two lessons/labs for teaching and learning of computer science and sociology. Either and be used on their own or they can be used in sequence, in which case this should be used first.
Students will develop CS skills and behaviors including but not limited to: learning what an API is, learning how to access and utilize data on an API, and developing their R coding skills and knowledge. Students will also learn basic, but important, sociological principles such as how poverty is related to educational opportunities in America. Although prior knowledge of CS and sociology is helpful, neither is necessary for student (or instructor) success on this two-week project. Three instructional hours per week (total of six hours over two weeks).

Calculus III

The aim of this course is to introduce the concepts in multi-variable calculus which are used very often in physics, engineering, chemistry, computer sciences, and other applied fields.
The course will start with an overview of points, vectors, lines, planes, and curves in three-dimensional space . We will then move on to surfaces in space, their derivatives, maximum and minimum problems. We will see how one can compute surface areas and volumes of the underlying space of a given surface. Towards the end of the course we will study three important theorems in this course: Green’s theorem, Stokes’ Theorem, and Gauss’ Theorem. These theorems have enormous consequences and applications in real life; especially in physics and engineering.

Professor Kingan‰Ûªs motivation for writing her free Calculus I textbook was to help address the departments high failure rates in Calculus. Along with another CUNY initiative to offer Calculus workshops in advance of taking the course, Kingan‰Ûªs concise textbook in Calculus I offers students inside and outside of CUNY an opportunity to prepare for Calculus I at their own pace. She also believes that by providing free access to this material she could help to overcome some of the inequity students experience when Calculus is not offered in their high school. The textbook was written specifically for this pilot project.
The full website is available at http://calculusforeveryone.wordpress.com/ and was developed in collaboration with Miriam Deutch and Diane Dias de Fazio.
