PSCI 2251 - Physical Science by Inquiry 1

Credits: 4
An inquiry-based (lab-oriented) course in the physical sciences designed primarily for students who expect to teach the physical sciences (K-12) or those who learn better with a hands-on approach to science. Topics include properties of matter (mass, volume, density, concentration, and solubility), heat and temperature (calorimetry, phase change, and heat transfer), thermal properties of matter (heat capacity and specific heat), light and color (light, shadows, and pigments), and astronomy (solar system, solar motion, and lunar phases). 6 lab hours $GEP
