Learning Communities integrate two or more courses using a common theme. By connecting subjects through readings and assignments, understanding of the material is easier and learning is improved. Furthermore, you'll work with the same community of students in the linked classes, helping each other succeed and making friends along the way. To enroll, simply register for the specific courses and sections in the learning community. The courses will transfer and appear on your transcript just as they would if you took them separately.
We are surrounded everywhere by a continuously changing world, and calculus is the mathematics that describes this continuous change. Over centuries, the origins and development of calculus were motivated and driven by problems in physics. We will examine ways in which this particular language of mathematics helps us understand and describe the forces of physics at work in our dynamic universe. We will see how many important concepts in physics, including projectile motion, force, work, energy, momentum, inertia, can be described and deeply understood using the language and techniques of calculus.

Rites (and writing) surrounding death have allowed us space to grieve and to celebrate, to mourn and to move on. Build on the skills in writing and research you learned in English 101, but add your own voice, focusing on human encounters with death and memorializing, while establishing your skills as a speaker and presenter. Study social traditions and individual inventions for coping, texts and tributes, and local sites of interest while becoming a stronger orator.
