ERTH 1030 - Natural Sciences I

The sciences of the natural world, focusing primarly upon physics and chemistry but including some discussion of relevant topics in astronomy and planetary science. Both classical and modern concepts are treated, at scales ranging from the atom to the universe, and an effort is made to instill an appreciation for the nature of science and the scientific method. Examples are used as appropriate to illustrate the value of science in our everyday lives. The course is designed for students in nontechnical fields; engineering and science majors will not be allowed to register. (Note: Natural Sciences II does qualify as a science distribution requirement for some science majors.)

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
