|Title||Energy and the Environment|
|Prerequisites||Completion of a laboratory science sequence, or permission of Department Chairperson|
This course focuses on understanding what energy is, how it is produced, and how it is utilized in modern society, drawing on concepts from physics, chemistry, geography and geology to understand energy production and conservation. The advantages and disadvantages of renewable and non-renewable energy sources will be analyzed, including issues of efficiency, availability, cost, pollution, and environmental impact. Three lecture hours per week.
This course is intended to develop those ideas, computational techniques, and methods of reasoning used in college mathematics, with an emphasis on algebra needed to formulate and solve first and second degree equations, constructing models using linear and quadratic functions, and concepts of coordinate geometry. Only for students entering Fall 1999 or later who have not passed either the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra Test or the College Level Math Test or for those students who entered before Fall 1999 who have not satisfied the Basic Mathematics Competency Requirement. Does not give degree credit. Three lecture hours per week.
