Exploration and Experiment is a science-focused program intended to prepare you for success in a quantitative field such as Chemistry, Engineering, or Physics. If you are considering a major in one of these subjects, you should definitely take this FYE. There will be math! In order to be successful, you will need to take a college-level calculus course, if you haven’t already had one. We’ve been asked not to mention explosions, medieval siege engines, or giant robots in this blurb. So we won’t.
CHEM 131 Fundamentals of Chemistry I – Dr. Jeffrey Cornelius
This introductory chemistry course will develop your observation, quantitative and scientific skills through learning and practicing chemistry. We will do this by researching, problem-solving, and performing experiments in the laboratory. Topics include the structure of atoms, working with conversions and math ratios, models of bonding, and understanding gases, liquids, and solids.
PHYS 201 Physics for Scientists/Engr I – Dr. Jonathan Langton
This introductory physics course will cover mechanics of single particle systems, including kinematics, force, and conservation laws.
The Integrated Learning Course will focus on the skills and process of conducting scientific research projects.
Please join us in the fall for Exploration and Experiments!
