Math 301

This is the main page for the MAT 301 face-to-face course 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):

  • Assignments:
    • Labs: To do the labs on your computer, you need to have Adobe Reader and Java and Flash, or you need to install Maple.

      How to get Maple software (optional, free download from CUNY eMall): The labs for this course can be done using either Maple, or using online applets (to be posted here as needed). If you will be taking future calculus courses at BMCC after this one, you may want to download this software. Maple software can be downloaded for free by all CUNY students by logging into the CUNY portal and clicking on CUNY eMall at the very top once you are logged in (then click on software and on the next page click on Maplesoft software - if you end up on the Microsoft software page, just clickMore Software towards the top of the page and it should display Maple as one of the options).

  • 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.
