Brief Admissions Session
Make My Valentine (Theory of the Firm, Econ 102)
How does a business make operating decisions like, "What should we produce?" "How many units?" "Should we use people or machines to make our product?" Join us as we engage in a manufacturing activity to explore these questions.
Communication Arts & Sciences: A chilling classroom and a diabolic professor set the stage for a spooky theoretical investigation into how Malaysian ghost stories shape and maintain ideas about gender, race, and class in Malaysia. Beware! Only those who are brave and willing to question their taken-for-granted-assumptions need show up ... after all, we may learn a thing or two, and maybe see a ghost?
Everything you wanted to know about Electrical Engineering, but were afraid to ask
This class will provide an overview of some key topics in electrical engineering such as ac vs. dc, analog vs.digital, and the basic concepts of voltage, current, and impedance in an electrical circuit. The topics will be presented using methods employed in a typical college lecture setting making use of demonstrations and classroom response devices designed to maximize student engagement.
Seeing things that aren’t there
Underlying our perception of visual stimuli are a multitude of automatic cognitive processes that help us perceive and interpret the world around us. This talk will investigate these processes by examining why illusions work, why we sometimes can’t see what is right in front of us, and why we see things that aren’t there.
Naming Chemical Compounds: General Chemistry
All science and engineering students need to take General Chemistry as part of their major. Chemistry at Berks is taught using a 'flipped-classroom' model where students will prepare for material prior to class by reading through a Class Guide and completing a pre-class assignment. During class students will work on problems and use clickers to answer questions. In this class students will experience clickers while they learn how to name Chemical Compounds. By the end of class students will be able to write the chemical formula given the name such as "Iron (III) bromide" or write the name given the chemical formula such as FeBr3.
