Science is unquestionably central in shaping our modern world. Though often directed by the “big science” efforts of universities, global corporations, and nations, it is the individual scientist that populates these scientific communities. It is at this individual level, both professionally and personally, that science touches us most directly. Students earn advanced degrees in a wide range of specialties like physics, biology, and chemistry. Science is also a central component in related fields of medicine, geology, genetics, ecology, cosmology, and technology. On the personal level we encounter science everyday when we eat genetically enhanced food, take complicated medicines to combat illness, debate the origins of life, strive to understand new information about ourselves in the universe, use advanced technologies, and in many more ways. These scientific developments do not emerge instantaneously from a vacuum. To fully understand science, one must have an appreciation of its history and how it has developed over time. The latest scientific advance is merely a snapshot of the present, and only looking at this image obscures our appreciation of the dynamic interaction between science and culture, and the ways that national, institutional, and individual goals have determined its trajectory. This broader perspective, gained only by the study of the history of science, serves as our central mission in this class. STEM185 and HIST270 are considered equivalent courses. Beginning January 2023, students may only take one of these courses for credit.

This course investigates the concepts of college algebra. The course covers the concepts of algebra, graphing and solution of linear and quadratic equations, inequalities and the solution of systems of linear equations. The course is organized into four distinct parts. The first part of the course covers the basic concepts involved in graphing points and linear equations. The second part of the course investigates the solution and graphing of inequalities and systems of linear equations. The third part of the course concentrates on the manipulation and use of exponential expressions and radicals. The final part of the course considers the solution of quadratic equations and their applications. Practical applications are provided throughout the course. There is careful attention to the presentation of concepts that will become important in the study of analytic geometry, trigonometry and calculus. The course assumes the student has completed MATH101 Introduction to College Algebra or an equivalent course and is completely comfortable with the language of algebra, equations and inequalities, polynomials, factoring, and rational expressions.

THIS COURSE DOES NOT FULFILL MATH PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENTS IN SCIENCE PROGRAMS. STUDENTS IN AS OR BS PROGRAMS OR IN PROGRAMS THAT REQUIRE MATH302 SHOULD TAKE MATH110 OR HIGHER AS THEIR MATH GEN ED UNLESS CLEARED WITH ACADEMIC ADVISOR FIRST. This course examines various mathematical concepts and problem solving techniques and provides mathematical functional literacy for those majoring in non-technical subject areas such as intelligence, military history, economics, and management. Students will learn how to solve a wide variety of problems from such areas as: mathematical thinking; logic; number theory and real numbers; introduction to algebraic equations, inequalities, and problem solving; functions and graphs; geometry; mathematical systems and matrices; sophisticated counting techniques; consumer math; and an introduction to probability and statistics. This course is principally a problem-solving course where students learn how to solve a wide variety of mathematical problems, rather than a conceptual course where problem solving is not emphasized.

Effective emergency planning is the key to surviving natural and man-made disasters. Risk analysis and the formulation of a comprehensive plan, followed by a vigorous and continuing testing program, are essential elements to surviving an emergency. Topics covered include threat assessment, risk analysis, the formulation of a plan, emergency operations center (EOC) staffing, coordination with supporting agencies, the importance of liaison continuity, actual incident management, and effective follow-up analysis. Various actual case studies are discussed. Students build upon their knowledge and use the Hazard Vulnerability Assessment (HVA) developed in EDMG101. If they have not taken the course, a generic completed HVA will be provided to develop a section of an Emergency Operation Plan. Students will also have the ability to work through a self-paced optional “refresher” module on the creation of the HVA.
