Abstract: In a recent paper, Folsom and Ono constructed a canonical sequence of weight 1/2 mock theta functions and a canonical sequence of weight 3/2 weakly holomorphic modular forms, both using Poincaré series. They show a remarkable symmetry in the coefficients of these functions and conjecture that all the coefficients are integers. We prove that this conjecture is true by giving an explicit construction for the weight 1/2 mock theta functions, using some results found by Guerzhoy.
