There are no prerequisites for this course.
At the successful completion of this course the student should be able to
confidently discuss topical scientific matters with their peers and family.
critically assess the context and scholarliness of scientific sources.
research a scientific topic and communicate their research to civic groups.

A introductory college-level math course is clustered with an interdisciplinary science course. Each year we pick a current topic important in society to explore math, science and data interpretation.
Students are assessed by their performance on group projects, individual assignments and mathematical exams.
The course is assessed using the student assessment of learning gains (SALG) instrument, course specific assessments and student performance on measurable learning outcomes.
