infoicon  
ENGLISH II TEXT & ANALYIS HONORS: English Composition II Honors is a second-semester composition course that continues to refine the writing skills learned in English Composition I, including fluency, coherence, organization, and control of grammar and mechanics. The course focuses on analysis and synthesis of texts, finer points of writing style, and responsible researching skills. Students write a series of documented essays in comparative, analytical, and persuasive modes. A variety of texts serves as the springboard for written and oral analysis as students continue to strengthen and refine their analytical skills through careful examination of readings.
 
25160 MATH 114H PRECALCULUS HONORS  
infoicon  
PRECALCULUS-HONORS: This is an honors course designed for students preparing to study calculus. The material covered in this course combines the material in BOTH MATH 112 Precalculus I and MATH 113 Precalculus II. As an honors course, it includes additional material including all material from the one credit MATH 116 Intro to Limits course. Topics include the study of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, exponential, and trigonometric functions and other topics from algebra, trigonometry and analytic geometry. It also includes the binomial theorem and the study of limits of polynomial, rational, radical and trigonometric functions. Students who successfully complete Precalculus Honors can proceed directly into the study of calculus.
 
21502 MATH 116H INTRO TO LIMITS HONORS  
infoicon  
INTRO TO LIMITS HONORS: This course is designed as an honors component to supplement existing courses at the precalculus level. The course is intended to provide students with exposure to relevant ideas for future courses in Calculus. Topics include intuitive concept of the limit of a function, introduction to the delta epsilon definition, limits at infinity, continuity, and the Intermediate Value Theorem. Offered in the spring semester.
 
24467 MATH 117H STATISTICS HONORS  
infoicon  
STATISTICS HONORS: This is an honors course combining the material in both Math 110 Statistics I and Math 111 Statistics II, as well as topics of Experimental Design. This course introduces the student to the methods and uses of statistical research. Topics include descriptive displays and analysis, classical probability, the normal distribution, the sampling distribution of the mean, inferences concerning means, critical values, and p-values (Statistics I). Other topics include description and analysis of bivariate data, regression and correlation, inferences in regression, chi-square procedures, inferences in two means and proportions, simple experimental design, analysis of variance, and optional non-parametric tests (Statistics II). Experimental Design topics include randomized block designs, two-way factorial experiments, repeated measures, relationship between ANOVA and regression, two-stage nested designs, and estimation based on nested sampling.
 
25239 SOCI 101H INTRO TO SOCIOLOGY HONORS  
infoicon  
INTRO TO SOCIOLOGY HONORS: Sociologists have a unique perspective that enables individuals to understand how larger social forces influence our personal experiences. Students who take Introduction to Sociology Honors will be provided with this perspective which they will then use to examine contemporary American society. A variety of source materials will be used to examine important social issues including the American class structure, deviance and conformity, the changing American family, and the relationship between economic and political power. As globalization increasingly shapes our lives, cross cultural data will be used for comparative and informative purposes.
