NSCI 100 - Calculations in Sciences

Credit Hours: 1
Lecture Hours: 0
Lab Hours: 3

This course provides a strong foundation of mathematics common to introductory level chemistry and physics and thus it serves as a good preparation course for these courses. Topics include, but are not limited to, scientific notation, metric system, significant figures, conversion factors, word problems, important calculations in stoichiometry, properties of functions, curve sketching, trigonometry, hyperbolics, parametric equations, polar coordinates, imaginary numbers, complex numbers, vectors, intersections and distances, dimensional analysis, kinematics, Newton’s laws, and circular motion. The 3-hour per week studio teaching consists of the introduction of the topics; active, collaborative, and cooperative learning; practice of the concepts; and graded activities.
