Mr Will Bryan achieved the top grade possible (A) in Biology A-level before reading Geography at the University of Cambridge. During his three years as an undergraduate, Will studied biogeography, which focuses on plant biology at the macro-scale and covers issues, such as plant succession and the impact of fertilisers on the environment. He also studied contemporary climate processes, including the causes and impacts of global warming, which are a common feature of Biology syllabuses. Will is available to teach Biology to students up to IGCSE.
As a student in this program you&rsquo ll study an Asian language - Chinese, Hindi and Urdu, Japanese, Korean, or Hmong - as well as methods of literary and cultural analysis. The language study will provide you with advanced spoken and written skills that allow you direct access to the people and cultures of Asia, where more than half the world&rsquo s population lives. The analytical courses give a theoretically sophisticated understanding of the rich literary and cultural texts, from the accepted literary canon to popular culture and film.
Investigate quantitatively, to determine the impact of each additive, the effects on samples of a garden soil of adding 75% by mass of (a) sand, (b) potting compost, and (c) clay* on
where n is the absolute refractive index of material 7. The refractive index is equal to the ratio of the ray 8767 s speed (v) in materials 6 & 7 and also equal to the ratio of the wave 8767 s wavelength (λ) in materials 6 & 7, so we can show that
You will be taught by research active staff at the cutting edge of their fields. Members of staff are involved in variety of research areas. Research is being undertaken in the area of mathematical risk theory and finance as part of the Department's enhancement of Finance, as well as modelling of epidemiological systems to un-derstand disease patterns.
Prerequisite: PSYC 655. Recommended: PSYC 855. An examination of the interplay of individual, ethnic, and cultural factors in psychosocial growth and well-being. The aim is to apply analysis of cultural factors to make decisions, solve problems, and communicate effectively. Issues of globalization, diversity, cultural bias, and cross-ethnic communication are addressed.
The third way to study nursing at the University of Minnesota is to complete an undergraduate degree in a field other than nursing and then pursue a Master of Nursing at the U of M. As a graduate student studying nursing you will be a part of a school that partners with more than 755 health and community organizations that will provide you with excellent supervised clinical experiences. You&rsquo ll have a range of learning experiences to further develop your skills, perspectives and understanding of the continuum of care provided by nurses.
Art History is the study of the visual world, both past and present. It looks closely at a wide array of images, objects, buildings, and sites in order to better understand human societies. Art History operates with the understanding that visual/material artifacts may speak more directly and deeply about a culture than its written record. This is called "visual literacy" and it is an invaluable skill in our increasingly visual world.
Prerequisite: PSYC 655. Recommended: PSYC 855. An examination of the influence of social factors on individual and interpersonal behaviors. The objective is to analyze the underlying causes of individual and group behavior and the ways in which group attitudes and behaviors are related. Topics include conformity, attitudinal change, personal perception, and group behavior. Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: BEHS 776, BEHS 976, BEHS 955, PSYC 776, or PSYC 876.
You will benefit from a well-rounded curriculum that covers the managerial, behavioral, and ecological sciences of our natural resources. Examples of coursework include dendrology, managing recreational lands, hydrology, environmental conflict management, and forest ecology. The hands-on curriculum in FNRM will bring you beyond the classroom during field sessions where students learn and practice the technical skills used by professionals. The FNRM major is the only 9-year bachelor&rsquo s degree program in Minnesota that is accredited by the Society of American Foresters. This accredited degree program prepares students to work for local, state, and federal agencies such as the National Park Service, USDA Forest Service, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
In Year 7, 8 and 9 students will be given an introduction into Computer Science, including planning, programming, algorithms and computer architecture. They will be encouraged to think logically and independently to solve computational problems and thorough understanding of computing concepts will give them the tools to transfer their learning to other problems in the future.
