POD:01 - Issues in Adolescent Development
Jeanie Harmon, Child Development

Adolescence, once a relatively short period in the course of development, has now extended from the teens into the twenties for many youth in America. Much of our student population, particularly those ages 18-22, display characteristics that reflect an extended adolescence. Students are living at home with parents for longer periods of time, taking longer to achieve independence and self-sufficiency, are less familiar with the demands of the work world and have a harder time setting and achieving goals. How do we support the needs of these students, set appropriate expectations and facilitate the skills needed for competence and self-sufficiency? In this session, we will discuss characteristics of late adolescent development and practical strategies for supporting the needs of students, ages 18-22 in the college-learning environment.

Mohammed ibn Musa al-Khwarizimi was a hugely important mathematician and scientist from the early Islamic period (second millennium AD).  His influence on shaping of modern mathematical ideas is so important to our mathematical thinking that the word algebra, which was taken from the title of his original textbook, and algorithm, which is a corruption of the name “al-Khwarizimi” have become words that are commonly used today.  Dean Gooch, mathematics instructor at SRJC, will trace the history of Mohammed ibn Musa’s work, discuss the probable origin of his mathematical and scientific knowledge, and explain the impact of his work on modern mathematics.
