ERTH 1030 - Natural Sciences I

The sciences of the natural world, focusing primarily 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 nonscience majors and cannot be used by science majors to fulfill a distribution requirement. (Note: Natural Sciences II does qualify as a science distribution requirement for some science majors.)

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Credit Hours: 4
