Florida Tech's College of Engineering and Science, the largest and most research intensive arm of Florida Tech, is offering a virtual summer program that is designed to prepare students with diverse backgrounds for basic math and science courses that are essential for STEM majors. The courses are geared to rising 10th-12th grade high school students.
The six courses being offered are:
College Algebra Review: Review of fundamental topics in algebra required for college level math courses.
Applied Statistical Analysis: Introduces the powerful research tool of statistical analysis using R-Statistical software and utilizes the “inquiry-based” learning strategy, in which the students actively participate in the learning process through investigative research and cooperative learning.
Introductory Chemistry: Covers the foundations of modern chemistry, focuses on tackling scientific problems with the eye of a chemist, and provides a hands-on (virtual) experience on how to collect data and write lab reports.
Calculus Refresher: Provides the review of key mathematical concepts to help students gear up for fast-paced college level Calculus course.
Introduction to Genetics & Biochemistry: An introduction to fundamental principles of biology, including the building blocks of cells, photosynthesis, and cellular respiration, as well as classic and modern genetics.
Introduction to Physics: A basic introduction to Newton's laws, kinematics, energy, and momentum, in preparation for University Physics 1.
Sign up for one or more courses. Each one meets for an hour per day, Monday through Thursday, for six weeks. Additional "enrichment sessions" are offered on Fridays.
