MSP161 - Math/Science Prep
Credits: 2

Catalog Description: This course is the first semester of a four (4) semester preparatory curriculum designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for participating in the STEM enrichment program including readiness for MAT 136, CHE 101, and PHY 131. Students will begin an exploration of science and math topics typically covered in first half of PHY 100 – How things Work and the first half of MAT 102 – Algebra 2. Students will explore the physical world and its impact on human life, including the basic principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, waves, optics, and atomic physics as well as the solving of first degree inequalities, introduction to functions, linear equations in two variables and graphing, solving systems of two or three linear equations and inequalities, a brief review of polynomial operations and factoring.

MSP164 - Math/Science Prep 4
Credits: 2

Catalog Description: This course is the fourth semester of a four (4) semester preparatory curriculum designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for participating in the STEM enrichment program including readiness for MAT 136, CHE 101, and PHY 131. Students will begin an exploration of science and math topics typically covered in BIO 100 – Introduction to Biology and review components of MAT 102 – Algebra 2. Students will explore an introduction to the basic characteristics of life, organisms, their interactions, and the scientific process. Improves scientific thinking and increases science literacy. This course will provide an overview of 5 core concepts of biology: studying and using the scientific method, evolution, ecology, genetics, and biodiversity.
