Need to understand what kind of camera I should get based on the criteria of this beginner's class
. (You need to scroll down to the second class, "Introduction to Digital Photography.")

I want to take a class and want to get a camera for it. Here's the course description:
introduction to digital photography
Want to find out what White Balance, Resolution, and Mega Pixels are all about, speak the digital lingo and finally understand that manual? In this class, you will learn how to use your digital camera more effectively, review the fundamentals of image capture and camera operation, proper exposure and effective composition. Weekly assignments and sharing images in class will help you troubleshoot and develop a creative eye. Students are expected to provide a digital camera with manual adjustment capacities (Aperture (A), Shutter Speed (S, or Tv), and camera manual (bring to first class). Automatic point and shoots are not suitable for this class.
I don't know what all this means and don't know how to pick a camera that has these options. Any suggestions that are mid-range priced? I am a total noob when it comes to cameras. Thanks in advance!
