English Classes

English 84 - Developmental Reading and Writing

This course introduces students to the processes of creating, developing, and revising paragraphs and short essays based on personal experiences, observations, and reactions to short reading selections. Students learn basic rules of grammar, mechanics, and usage. Students practice a variety of sentence types and paragraph structures. Students revise their writing with the assistance of weekly one–on–one tutorials.

 

English B - Introduction to College Writing

This course introduces students to the processes of creating, developing, and revising paragraphs and a short essay based on personal experiences, observations, and reactions to short reading selections. Students learn basic rules of grammar, mechanics, and usage. Students practice a variety of sentence types and paragraph structures. Students revise their writing with the assistance of weekly one-on-one tutorials.

 

English A - Writing the College Essay

This course is designed to strengthen college–level writing skills. Students will read and analyze articles and essays and will practice writing coherent, well–developed expository essays. Students will revise their writing using peer review and weekly one–on-one tutorials. Students will review functional grammar and sentence skills and be introduced to techniques of research and documentation.

 

English 1A - Reading and Composition

This course is designed to strengthen the students’ ability to read with understanding and discernment, to discuss assigned readings intelligently, and to write clearly. Emphasis will be placed on the ability to write an essay in which each paragraph relates to a controlling idea, has an introduction and conclusion, and contains primary and secondary support. College-level reading material will be assigned to provide the stimulus for class discussion and writing assignments, including a required research paper.  

 

Math Classes

Math 23 - Pre-Algebra

This course bridges the gap between arithmetic and formal algebra, developing number sense and operation sense, in order to formulate and solve algebraic equations with integers, fractions and percent’s. Algebraic principles are applied to problems from a variety of fields. Other topics include: proportional reasoning, spatial reasoning, informal geometry and measurement, coordinate graphing, informational graphs, and data collection and description.

 

Math 37 - Basic Accelerated Mathematics

This accelerated course provides students who place below the elementary algebra level the opportunity to develop numeracy skills, strengthen mathematical reasoning skills, and complete elementary algebra in a single semester. There are three levels of mathematics in this course, taught in an integrated fashion: basic arithmetic skills; fundamentals of algebra, with an emphasis on linear equations; and the remaining topics found in a typical elementary algebra course. This course has multiple exit levels, based on a student’s demonstrated competencies. Students engage in student success activities, including creating an education plan with a counselor, and participation in supplemental instruction.

 

Math 40 - Elementary Algebra

This course in elementary algebra includes the study of real number solutions and applications of linear equations, quadratic equations, linear inequalities, and systems of linear equations. Other topics include coordinate graphing or linear equations, factoring techniques, and simplification of rational and radical expressionsNote: Mathematics 40 is equivalent to one year of high school algebra.

 

Math 80 - Intermediate Algebra for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

 This intermediate algebra course is designed for students who are considering further study in the sciences, technology, engineering, or mathematics. In the context of studying a large library of basic functions and their graphs, students strengthen and expand their algebra skills. The library includes linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic functions, as well as inverse functions and the absolute value function. Particular emphasis is placed on the operations on functions, as well as solving equations and inequalities. Other topics include solving systems of equations, operations on complex numbers, and applications. 

 

Math 150 - Elementary Probability and Statistics

The focus of this course is the basic practice of statistics, including descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, and the role probability plays in statistical analysis. Students calculate and interpret various descriptive statistics using graphing calculators with statistical testing capabilities and statistical software, as well as by hand. Major topics include methods of data collection and simulation; measures of central tendency, variability, and relative position; graphical summaries of data; linear regression and correlation; distributions, including normal and binomial distributions; probability theory; and inferential statistical methods. Students choose, justify, use, and interpret the results of inferential techniques, such as confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, goodness of fit, analysis of variance, and nonparametric tests.
