Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
Goal 03 - Natural Science
  • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
  • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
  • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
  • Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about science-related topics and policies.

Description
This course focuses on the observable universe. We look at basic scientific methods, theories and concepts related to space/time, motion, and forces that govern the universe. The origin, evolution, and fate of planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe are examined and interpreted. Observational techniques for astronomic studies are introduced and used. Events and techniques related to space exploration and searches for life elsewhere are covered. Several voluntary night observations are offered during the semester. A semester project using observational skills is assigned along with several internet and written activities. Prerequisites: Algebra is recommended MnTC Goal: 3, Group B
