Found of Elem School Geometry

MAT 240

This course is a second semester requirement for students in the elementary education program. It emphasizes background information for the teaching of elementary school geometry. Topics include geometric shapes, spatial visualization, measurement, similarity and congruence, and transformational geometry. Students learn mathematical theory and application, and experience the role of elementary school students through a variety of classroom activities and demonstrations. Prerequisite: MAT 140 with a grade of C or better.

Fund of Electricity for Techs

MFG 102

This is an algebra-based Electricity Fundamentals course. The expected students are those in the manufacturing technician training program. Topics covered will include "What is Electricity', Ohm's Law, Watt's Law, Power and Energy Series, Parallel, and Combination Circuits, Wire Size and Ampacity, Magnetism and Inductors, Alternating Current, Capacitors, Three-phase power, Motors, and Troubleshooting. This course includes a lab component. Prerequisite(s) : MAT 115

Intro-ProgramLogic Controllers

MFG 115

This course will provide the fundamentals of a programmable logic controller(PLC). Hands-on instruction and industrial-type applications of PLC's requiring relay ladder logic control and a study of automated manufacturing and the functions of PLC's in an industrial environment will be provided. Topics include components of a PLC, memory organization, discrete I/O, numbering systems, logic gates, Boolean algebra, relay ladder logic, timers, counters, word level logic and troublshooting. 2 hrs lect. 2 hrs. lab. Prerequisite: MAT 115 or higher.

Music Theory II

MUS 102

The course material covered includes a review of triads and their inversions, non-harmonic tones, and tonal structure involving diatonic harmony. More advanced use of diatonic seventh and secondary dominant chords will be applied as part of the harmonization of melodies. Other areas to be covered include modulation, contemporary music application course material, modes and more advanced compositional techniques. Prerequisite: MUS 101 or successful score in the Theory Placement Test.

Music Appreciation

MUS 105

Students in this course learn to understand music through active, perceptive listening. Identification of musical elements, media, textures, designs, and genres is stressed. Course requirements include listening assignments outside of class. No music skill or previous experience is required. This course is not intended for music majors.

College Chorus

MUS 107

Students in the College Chorus gain experience in the study and performance of choral music repertoire representing diverse genres, styles periods, and cultures. Emphasis is placed on developing the vocal instrument and building choral music performance, ear training, and music reading skills.

Vocal Ensemble

MUS 111

Students in the Vocal Ensemble, in contrast to the College Chorus, gain experience in the study and performance of small ensemble repertoire representing diverse genres, style periods, and cultures. The music studied ranges from Renaissance to Jazz, from Baroque to Broadway, as well as popular and folk. Emphasis is placed on developing the vocal instrument and choral music performance and ear training skills. The Vocal Ensemble performs three or four public concerts each semester and is open to all students, faculty, staff, and persons in the community by audition and instructor recommendation. Vocal Ensemble may be repeated for credit and may be elected without credit.

Jazz Ensemble

MUS 114
