• Senior Course Descriptions 

    Seniors must choose either college physics, college biology, human anatomy or microbiology; seniors must choose among Laboratory Calculus, Advanced Calculus II, or college statistics.  All seniors are required to take senior research application and evaluation course.

    College Physics

    The course is an advanced curriculum that stresses development of problem solving, thinking and laboratory skills.  The content covers mechanics, thermodynamics, wave phenomena, electricity and magnetism, and selected topics in modern physics.  Classroom activities include collecting and analyzing data in a computer-based lab and introducing students to application of theoretical concepts.  Experimental design, gathering data, and the use of statistics to analyze data are studied jointly with the research methodology and design course or senior research application and evaluation.

    *1 high school credit/8 College semester hours/year (Prerequisite:  Advanced Mathematical Analysis)

    College Biology 

    This course is a college-level introduction focusing on the fundamental characteristics of living matter from the molecular level to the ecological community level.  Introduces the diversity of living organisms, their structure, function, and evolution.  Topics covered include major concepts in molecular and cellular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, botany, physiology, and ecology.

    *1 high school credit/8 College semester hours/year (Prerequisite:  Algebra II)

    Human Anatomy 

    This course integrates anatomy and physiology of cells, tissues, organs, and systems of the human body.  Integrates concepts of chemistry, physics, and pathology.

    *1 high school credit/ 8 college semester hours/year (Prerequisite:  College Chemistry)

    Calculus I (MTH 263)

    Presents concepts of limits, derivatives, differentiation of various types of functions and use of differentiation rules, application of differentiation, antiderivatives, integrals and applications of integration.

    *1 high school credit/4 College semester hours/year

    Calculus II (MTH 264)

    Continues the study of calculus of algebraic and transcendental functions including rectangular, polar, and parametric graphing, indefinite and definite integrals, methods of integration, and power series along with applications.  Designed for mathematical, physical, and engineering science programs.

    *1 high school credit/4 College semester hours/year

    Statistics I (MTH 245)

    Presents an overview of statistics, including descriptive statistics, elementary probability, probability distributions, estimation, hypothesis testing, correlation, and linear regression.

    *3 college semester hours/year (Co-requisite: Calculus II)

    Statistics II (MTH 246)

    Continues the study of estimation and hypothesis testing with emphasis on advanced regressions topics, experimental design, analysis of variance, chi-square tests, and non-parametric methods.
