Descriptions and credit recommendations for all evaluated learning experiences

Location:
Connecticut, Delaware, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and other approved locations throughout the United States.
Length:
32 hours (8 weeks).
Dates:
July 2010 - Present.
Objectives:
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: solve equations and inequalities with 1 and 2 variables; apply trigonometric functions and laws; perform operations with rational expressions, functions, exponents, and roots; solve problems using exponential and logarithmic functions; correctly manipulate a calculator; and apply critical thinking and problem solving skills in analyzing information.
Instruction:
Major topics include: algebraic expressions, equations and inequalities, relations and functions, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, and uses of trigonometry. Methods of instruction include lecture, drill, class discussions, question and answer, exercises, and self-exploration, and group work.
Credit recommendation:

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category OR in the baccalaureate degree category, 3 semester hours in Algebra with Trigonometry (6/10) (12/15 revalidation). NOTE: The educational approach in this course is based on the principles of accelerated learning and adult learning theory. Based on this, and due to the limited class size and the low student/teacher ratio, learning outcomes are achieved and content is covered in the allotted hours.

Location:
Connecticut, Delaware, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and other approved locations throughout the United States.
Length:
28 hours (7 weeks).
Dates:
January 2009 - Present.
Objectives:
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: assess the eating patterns and dietary needs for people of different ages and for differing groups within society; identify nutrition and health problems associated with diet; identify the socio-economic factors related to diet; critically assess current nutrition fads and controversies; analyze various nutrient requirements and how these are translated to daily intake recommendations of nutrients and foods; and effectively manage family members' diets in relation to their needs and lifestyles.
Instruction:

This course focuses on content analysis and synthesis of particular aspects of the science of nutrition and its applications in real life. Through examination and enhancement of these concepts, students employ new attitudes and behaviors concerning their own perspective of nutrition for themselves, their families, and society as a whole. Major topics are: guidelines for designing a healthy diet; a nutrition perspective on the human body; energy balance and weight control; carbohydrates; fitness and sports nutrition; lipids; proteins; vitamins; minerals; global impacts; safety of food and water; under nutrition around the world; eating disorders; pregnancy and breastfeeding; nutrition from infancy through adolescence; and nutrition during adulthood.

Credit recommendation:

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Science (3/10) (6/15 revalidation). NOTE: The educational approach in this course is based on the principles of accelerated learning and adult learning theory. Based on this, and due to the limited class size and the low student/teacher ratio, learning outcomes are achieved and content is covered in the allotted hours.

Formerly:
Consumer Chemistry (SCI 215)
Location:
Connecticut, Delaware, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and other approved locations throughout the United States.
Length:
28 hours (7 weeks).
Dates:
July 2010 - Present.
Objectives:
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: determine the relationship between chemistry and many of the problems facing society such as environmental pollution, radioactivity, energy sources and human health; utilize the scientific method of problem solving; develop an appreciation of chemistry as an open-ended learning experience that is an integral part of daily life; read about science and technology with some degree of critical judgment; develop scientific literacy; and functionalize science as a means of gathering and evaluating information and chemistry as central to all the sciences.
Instruction:

This course helps students appreciate the world they live in through an understanding of the science of chemistry and its connection to personal and work environments Major topics include: applied study of chemistry for the non-science major; how to locate information and develop analytical skills; higher order reasoning skills; critical judgment; the ability to assess risks and benefits; how to respond with reasoned and informed intelligence to the complexities of our modern technological age; and relevant issues will be used to introduce chemistry and the science will be set in its economic, social, international, and ethical contexts.

Credit recommendation:

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Science and Society (3/10) (5/15 revalidation). NOTE: The educational approach in this course is based on the principles of accelerated learning and adult learning theory. Based on this, and due to the limited class size and the low student/teacher ratio, learning outcomes are achieved and content is covered in the allotted hours.
