New Math 110 Option Available

By , November 29, 2011 8:15 am

Are you avoiding taking Math 110- College Algebra? A new class option is now available for you! This pilot program includes one day of lecture and two days of lab each week. During lab sessions, you will work in an interactive learning environment, which will provide you with ongoing assessment opportunities, prompt feedback about your progress, and individualized on-demand tutoring. The vision for this redesign is to create a more closely-knit community of learners and educators than can be achieved in the traditional lecture setting.

To enroll, choose one of the two lab sessions available: 001L is Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-10:15am and 002L is Wednesdays and Fridays 1:00-2:15. You’ll automatically be enrolled in the lecture section, which is 1:00-1:50 on Mondays.

UMKC Theatre Presents The Salvation of Iggy Scrooge

By , November 29, 2011 8:10 am

A cross between the Dickens classic and a rollicking trip down pop culture memory lane, this is a phantasmagorical evening of irreverent Christmas cheer.  Iggy is a burned out rock-n-roll superstar who snarls through Christmas Eve until a top of the charts group of ghosts shows up: rock legends Bob Marley, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley come to set his warped values straight.  This crazy Christmas offering was first seen at the Unicorn in 1998.

Student tickets are $17.50. For more information, visit UMKC Theatre’s website.
