Science (SCIEN-UH)

SCIEN-UH 1101:1104  Foundations of Science 1: Energy & Matter  (4 Credits)  
Typically offered Fall and Spring  
Foundations of Science 1: Energy and Matter provides a comprehensive introduction to these two fundamental concepts that are so famously unified in the equality E=mc2. Following an introduction to the physical sciences, the course focuses on velocity, acceleration, forces, and energy, while simultaneously introducing students to atoms and molecules. Chemical reactions are examined, and the energy changes associated with them are investigated via a thorough analysis of the three laws of thermodynamics. Laboratory exercises focus on the guiding principles of the scientific method and an introduction to experimental design, and scientific presentation, including technical writing. Weekly discussion sections are designed to hone proficiency at solving problems in a collaborative, team environment. From Fall 2023 this course will now be known as: SCIEN-UH 1121EQ, SCIEN-UH 1122EQ, SCIEN-UH 1123EQ
