SCI 100 - Science Problem Solving


1 Credit(s)

Problems drawn from various areas of science, engineering, and daily life are used to help students develop strategies in problem solving. Measurement tools, physical objects, demonstrations, “manipulatives,” and the like are used to stress that the language of science refers to the real world and not simply to textbook examples. The course is taught in a laboratory setting to encourage free exploration of problem solving strategies and learning from others. Emphasis is placed on method and rationale rather than on correct answers. Students learn to justify solutions to problems in clear, logical language. One two-hour meeting weekly. Open to all students.
It does not count toward satisfying the science distribution requirement.
