INQ 250CHL 1

Instructor: Dr. Stephanie Livingston
Time: Th 1:10PM-4:10PM
Term: 2014FA
Room: TREX 469

Catalog Description:

Introduces the methodologies of the natural sciences through an inquiry-focused approach to a topic drawn from one of Western Perspectives, Global Perspectives, or the Natural World. Students will explore the types of questions that science asks and how it attempts to answer them by defining and classifying information, developing models, identifying patterns, and drawing conclusions based upon data.
