The College Mathematics course teaches students a wide spectrum of math concepts that are designed to build upon the math basics learned in high school and/or in earlier studies. Globally useful algebra and geometry skills are developed, and students experience new and pertinent content while exploring probability and statistics. In addition, problem solving is emphasized through the logic component of the course.
In this course, students will expand their structural control of language while gaining wide cultural knowledge. During the course, students are assigned research projects, analytical writing, and oral presentations, giving them the opportunity to develop writing, reading, listening, and speaking skills. These projects assist students in developing social awareness, historical perspective, scientific competence, moral understanding, and analytical and critical thinking. Ethnic and cultural diversity are explored as a way to further prepare students for participating in the global community.
The Directing course focuses on the many responsibilities of the director and film crew to successfully take a project from script to screen. During lectures, students learn basic and advanced techniques of directing, including acting, directing actors, composition, the rehearsal process, script analysis, preproduction, casting, and theory. Students participate in workshops that emulate a working film production environment, as they become director and actor utilizing their scripts and talents.
This course is designed to help students refine their own writing processes while developing an in-depth personal and intellectual inquiry into a subject of their choosing. The course connects personal reflection with critical analysis, providing varied opportunities for wiring and for strengthening language skills. As the course unfolds, a series of assignments lead students through a continually deepening creative research process, which then develops into a complex and detailed written project..
