Possible courses for Summer Scholars 2013

 

SCIENCEBIOL 101 General Biology
 

OVERVIEW

General Biology 101  is an introductory biology course that provides a thorough introduction to molecular and cellular topics in biology. 

Students will learn the structure and function of biological macromolecules, organelles, cellular membranes, cellular respiration, thermodynamics and photosynthesis, cell signaling, reproduction, and introductory Mendelian Genetics. 

Biology 101 is taught using lecture, group projects, and online tutorials and activities.

OUTCOMES

Students will be able to demonstrate understanding of the historical foundations, methodologies employed, general architecture and functioning of the cell - the basic unit of life.

This course is the prerequisite for Biology 102 and provides the intellectual foundation for future study in 200-level courses in cell biology and genetics. 

BASIC REQUIREMENT

  • Student must be entering their senior year in high school, Fall 2012
  • Grades of A in high school biology and chemistry
  • One of the two required recommendations for admission to the Pre-Collegiate program is submitted by one of your science teachers

CLASS INFORMATION

This course is held weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00am to 11:30am. The instructor for this course is Dawn Franks, Ph.D. Review the General Biology I syllabus now!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

You will be restricted to enrolling in ONLY THIS COURSE for summer 2012. It is our preference that you focus on the rigorous material which will help to establish the necessary foundation in this topic. 

Tuition & Fees: See the Math and Science Academy section for the tuition for only ONE course.

SCIENCECHEM 100: College Chemistry for a Sustainable Future
 

OVERVIEW

College Chemistry for a Sustainable Future combines lecture, discussion, and group activities.  Students will explore the role of chemistry in everyday life in our world. 

We will examine essential principles of matter, including atomic and molecular structure, patterns of chemical reactivity, energy transfer, and biomolecules. Chemical concepts in these areas will be applied to identifying problems and solutions to the related human and environmental issues of climate, water, energy, resources and health. 

The foundations of chemical knowledge achieved in this course can be applied to continued study of chemistry at the college level and informed citizenry in an interconnected world.

OUTCOMES

Students will demonstrate knowledge and describe everyday applications of basic chemical principles in the areas of structure and reactivity. Students will also be able to explain the role of chemistry in addressing real-world problems in human life and the environment, and utilize critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills necessary for future success in college and beyond.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS

  • High school algebra
  • High school geometry
  • One of the two required recommendations for admission to the Pre-Collegiate program is submitted by one of your science or math teachers

CLASS INFORMATION

The instructor for this course is Sandra Helquist. Review the Chemistry 100 syllabus now!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

You will be restricted to enrolling in ONLY THIS COURSE for summer 2012. It is our preference that you focus on the rigorous material which will help to establish the necessary foundation in this topic.

Tuition & Fees: depending on whether you choose to take ONE or TWO courses, please see the Math and Science Academy section for tuition information.
