This booklet identifies the minimum entrance requirements necessary for college admission in South Dakota's public universities and recommends specific content for each course in the curriculum, as well as additional experiences and skills that would smooth the transition to a higher education course. The following topics, targeted to students themselves, are discussed: (1) general requirements for college admissions and college preparatory curriculum; (2) recommended core courses in English, mathematics, science, social studies, modern/classical languages, fine arts, and computer science; (3) other experiences beyond the core courses; and (4) skills beyond the academic ones needed for academic success. Over half of the booklet is targeted to teachers and administrators. It describes detailed recommended course content for each of these subject areas: English; Mathematics (Algebra I and II, Geometry, Advanced Mathematics, Trigonometry, Finite Mathematics, Statistics); Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics); Social Studies (Government, United States History, World History, Geography, Economics, Sociology); Modern/Classical Languages; Computer Science; and Fine Arts (Visual Arts, Theatre, Music, Dance).
