Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Mathematics Department operations and instruction are being performed via a mix of remote and in-person means.

The Math Department's main telephone lines, at (212) 650-5346 and 5347, are being answered by in office staff, Monday through Thursday, for the Fall 2021 semester and the foreseeable future. Hours of operation for all days are from 10AM - 6PM.

On Fridays however, the staff will continue to operate remotely. As a result, calls to the department should then be directed to the following telephone number, (929) 277-8821, which will generally be answered 9am-5pm.

Preferably, email your concerns and questions to math@ccny.cuny.edu, which is also being monitored.

Staff members and administrators are either forwarding their telephone lines or monitoring their campus voicemail on a regular basis.

The Assistant Chair, Prof. Bak, and the Department Advisors for non-majors, Mr. Park and Mr. Turner, are holding regular online advising hours during which you can contact them in real time. The details can found on our Administration page which can be accessed via the left side bar or you can click here.

Additionally, Mr. Turner, who is also the Artino Lab Director, is available during his aforementioned posted office hours to answer programming questions from students in Math 328, 366, and 377.

Instructors can be contacted via email or their office hours. You can find a listing of instructors by clicking here or you can click here to view office hours for the Fall 2021 term.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing each other in person once again.

Dr. Bennington P. Gill

Bennington P. Gill is a professor emeritus of mathematics at City College. He was a treasurer of the American Mathematical Society and chairman of the New York section of the Mathematical Association of America. Martin Davis, being a student of Bennington Gill, cites him as a major influence for his mathematical career.

In 1942, Bennington Gill gave an interesting podcast describing the use of mathematics in World War II which was archived by the NY Public radio.

He graduated from City College (1917) with a B.S. degree in mathematics and received his Ph.D from Columbia University (1930).
