SAT/ACT Vocabulary - More Important Than You Think
Thursday, March 26th, 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Workshop Fee $80
The word these days is that neither SAT nor ACT tests vocabulary all that much anymore. But is that true?
Vocabulary is actually pretty heavily tested, just not quite in the way students think. In the course, we review prevalent SAT/ACT words, words with multiple meaning, words with scientific and historic context, common "word swaps" (than vs. then), and linking words (when do you start a sentence with "Regardless," anyway?).
Gambling And Investing - Learn The Math Behind Your Money
Tuesday, March 31st, 4:15pm - 6:15pm
Workshop Fee: $100
We all know gambling is generally a bad idea and investing generally a good one, but how does the Math behind it work?
In the first part of the course, students learn the basic rules for common casino games; through this process, they learn about probability, odds, expected value, permutations and combinations, and other statistical topics that become more interesting in the context of games. By the end of the gambling segment, your student will sure to know exactly why gambling is not a great idea! In the second half, students learn about basic investing concepts with money market accounts, CDs, stocks, and bonds; through these lessons, students learn about percent change, exponential growth and decay, interest rates, compound interest, and standard deviation, among other topics. By the end of the investing segment, your student should understand that educated investing can be a great idea! And they will learn/review valuable Math skills in the process.
Participation will require the use of a computer and access to the internet.
