PACA: Introduction to Communications & Reflective Development


Have you ever heard the term Thriving Mindset? When you have this mindset, you approach life with curiosity. You are eager to learn new things, reach goals, manage your emotions, and develop resilience. With resilience, you can adapt to and overcome obstacles you encounter. Sound interesting?

In PACA: Introduction to Communications & Reflective Development, you will work on your Thriving Mindset to learn about what makes you tick. You will explore your motivations and how they impact your goal setting. You will strengthen your belief in your own abilities. And you will reflect on your emotions and how they influence your outlook and actions. These skills will help you succeed in school, at work, and in your personal life. In fact, as you take this course, you may even see your relationships with others evolve and improve.

As you progress in this course, you will find a path to success that is uniquely your own. Along the way, you will discover how mindfulness can keep you centered and focused. You will develop empathy for others—but also for yourself. And these skills will help you make the most out of all that you do.

The material you study in this course may be challenging. Sometimes self-exploration can be uncomfortable. But try not to shy away from that discomfort. Your PACA Coach is available to help you understand and manage your response to challenges. If you encounter topics or assessments that seem overwhelming, be sure to ask for help! Your WGU Academy team is here to support you every step of the way. 



Have you ever realized that math is all around us—in the form of fractions, division, decimals, algebra, and more?  In Precalculus, you’ll become comfortable with these math basics and learn how they can help you every day, including maneuvering many of the challenges life may throw at you.

You probably know that math will help you manage a budget at work or at home, and help you tip a server at your favorite restaurant. But did you know that NASA uses math to get astronauts into space? Math is also required for video games, heart rate monitors, gourmet recipes, and construction projects.

This course also prepares you for higher-level math courses, which build on the basics you’ll learn here. And, as you learn more, your belief in your own math abilities will increase.

Along the way, you may have moments when everything makes sense, and other times when it feels confusing and overwhelming. When that happens, simply ask for help. Your instructor and the rest of the WGU Academy team are here to support you every step of the way.
