Math 051 Online

This is the main page for MAT 051 at BMCC/CUNY, taught by Prof. Wladis.

Useful course links (you may want to print these out and keep them with you throughout the semester):

  • Important Dates:

    • Midterm: 11/15 in class--come to class on Monday 11/13 with questions to review
    • Department Final Exam (on paper): 12/11
    • Computerized CUNY Final Exam: TBA (12/13 or 12/18)
  • Assignments:
    Each of these assignments is a required part of the course. If you want to pass the class, you have to complete ALL of the different assignment types. If you skip certain catgories of assignments, you will not be prepared for the exams, and you will also get zeros averaged into your grade, making it difficult or impossible to pass the class.
  • Handouts and Class Notes:

  • Class Mailing List: Click here for instructions on how to sign up for the class email list.
    If class is ever cancelled due to weather or illness, or if I need to contact you about your grade, this will be my main way of communicating with you, so please use an email address that you are likely to check often.

    Be sure to put my email address on your email program's accept list: If you plan on using an email address which is not a BMCC email address, make sure to put my email address, and the group email list, on your email program's accept list so that my emails to you are not filtered to your spam folder. To find out how to do this, contact your email provider.

  • BMCC email: You are required by BMCC to check your BMCC email regularly. While you may always email me from a non-BMCC email address, and you may sign up for the class mailing list with a non-BMCC email address, you must also check your BMCC email for important notifications. Go to to set up your BMCC email account. You will also need this information to login to the computers in our classrooms!
