## SOAR 10MA: Preparation for Success in Mathematics at Stanford

This course will build on and enrich students' fundamental prerequisite skills in foundational mathematics to prepare students for success in Calculus and further mathematics courses at Stanford University. This course is intended for students that will enroll in the
Math 19-20-21 sequence, but will broadly be relevant and engaging for success in university-level mathematics courses at Stanford, as well as in other courses at Stanford in other disciplines that rely on these courses as prerequisites. Students will enhance their proficiency with precalculus mathematics, with an emphasis on higher level conceptual understanding and problem-solving. The primary of this course is to help students develop and hone the mathematical skills necessary to successfully transition to university level mathematics at Stanford University. The course will focus on fundamental concepts from algebra, functions and graphs, trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, and limits.

## SOAR 10WR: Introduction to Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford

This course helps students develop greater confidence in their academic writing practice and prepares them for their first-year writing class. Through discussion, reading, and both informal and formal writing activities, students focus on how audience, purpose, and cultural context can shape the decisions they make in their writing; develop research and information literacy skills; and practice strategies for effective academic writing style. We'll engage with a variety of different types of writing, from expository to analytical essays and source-based writing. Class meets three times per week for 75 minutes synchronously online, and students also participate in at least one individual writing consultation with their instructor.
