Entering grades 9-12
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Advanced Credit/Enrichment

This course introduces students to the study of life by progressing from the microscopic level up to worldwide ecosystems. Class discussion is directed toward relating the material to human experiences. The laboratory provides a hands-on learning setting and encourages students to develop skills in observation, data collection, critical thinking and report writing. This course includes, but is not limited to, such topics as scientific method, cell biochemistry, respiration and photosynthesis, mitosis and meiosis, classical genetics, plant and animal anatomy and physiology. Due to the intensity of this course, it is highly recommended that students have earned at least a B in their preceding Science class.

Entering grades 10-12
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Advanced Credit/Enrichment

This course emphasizes the understanding of the basic principles of Chemistry, their application, and the use of data in the solution of problems rather than the memorization of a multitude of facts and formulas. The course includes, but is not limited to, such topics as atomic structure, chemical formulas, equation writing, phases of matter, ionization, gas laws, reaction energy, reaction kinetics, chemical equilibrium, stoichiometry and oxidation-reduction. Lab experiences develop and reinforce conceptual understanding. Due to the intensity of this course, it is a prerequisite that students have taken at least one year of High School science and that they have earned a grade of B or higher in their preceding science class

Entering grades 9-12
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Advanced Credit/Enrichment

This course covers topics in geometry including logic, angles and perpendicular lines, parallel lines and planes, constructions, coordinate geometry, polygons, triangles, quadrilaterals, inequalities, similar polygons, right triangles, circles, locus of points, area, solids and transformations. Due to the intensity of this course, it is highly recommended that students have earned at least a B in their preceding math class. We do NOT recommend that students younger than 9th grade take this course because of the time, intensity, work load and age of the other students in class.

Entering grades 9-11
Dates: June 28 – July 23

Enrichment (Pass/Fail with a certificate of completion)

Many students are showing strong interest in Computer Science. This has been a steady trend for the past number of years. Computer Science has been a fast-growing field of study and the skills learned continue to be in very high demand. These skills include algorithmic and computational thinking. Here at Rutgers Prep students can enroll in four Computer Science courses. To complete these courses students must enroll in the Introduction to Computer Science course. This 4-week summer course is offered to students who are interested in Computer Science.

Course Objectives

The main objective is to teach students computer science by using “real-world-computing” to demonstrate the growing importance of computers in today’s society. This fundamental course builds a good foundation for further study of computer science and is a prerequisite for AP Computer Science.

Entering grades 1-3 
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Math becomes fun and entertaining through games, songs and hands-on exploration. Students reinforce the skills needed through enrichment for math success.  Topics covered may include number sense, basic addition and subtraction, beginning multiplication/division, strategies for problem-solving, money with decimals.

Entering grades 3-5 
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Explore mathematics through hands-on learning to gain a better understanding of math concepts. Students review regrouping, multiplication/division, fractions and decimals through innovative multi-sensory lessons and story problems. Interactive play, math games, and individualized instruction allow plenty of opportunities to practice and reinforce skills. Students experiment with trial and error to learn from their mistakes to build confidence and an improved mathematical foundation.

Entering grades 10-12
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Advanced Credit/Enrichment

This course includes comprehensive coverage of the classic physics topics of mechanics, energy, light, electricity, magnetism and electromagnetism. The course emphasizes both the conceptual and theoretical understanding of the material. Lab experiences develop and reinforce conceptual understanding. A prerequisite for the class is the completion of Algebra 2. Completion of a Pre- Calculus or Trigonometry course is strongly recommended, as students will need to apply trigonometry skills to problems about vectors, angled projectiles, forces, work, momentum, electric fields, light and magnetism. Due to the intensity of this course, it is highly recommended that students have earned at least a B in their preceding science and math classes.

Entering grades 9-12
Dates: June 28 – July 30

Enrichment

This course is designed to prepare students to complete a traditional two-dimensional AP Physics-1 course in the fall and successfully complete the AP examination the following Spring. 

Passing of an AP exam may afford the student college credit. 

This course will mirror all units of instruction in AP Physics-1 as set forth by the College Board. The Algebra-Based direction will focus on Mechanics in one dimension and reinforce sound, basic conceptual understandings of physics phenomenon.
