The purpose of this course is to develop higher-order thinking abilities needed for academic success and personal development. Each element in this course is designed to help students become critical thinkers. Students will be challenged to think, reason, read and write clearly, logically and effectively in order to better understand our world and everyday situations. Critical thinking is often the first step in problem solving. It is essential for understanding ourselves and our relationships. The course will explore critical thinking as it helps to enhance our communication. The development of critical thinking will be fostered by applying these skills to contemporary issues and personal experiences. Students will begin to learn to recognize persuasion and bias, steps to problem-solving, analyze structure of arguments and evaluate the merits of arguments.
This course is designed to instruct students in the specific study habits, attitudes, thinking skills and problem-solving skills necessary for success in mathematics courses. Through the use of various attitude scales, students will determine personal strengths and weaknesses as well as behavior and attitude changes needed in order to maximize proficiency in mathematics. This course may be taken only one time for credit.
The purpose of the Financial Success for Students course is to help students learn the skills to stay out of debt and stay in school.
