In this course, the knowledge of science is built from the fundamental concepts of space, time, energy, and mass. Given these concepts, the basic principles of physics and chemistry are described and applied. The course includes surveys of astronomy and geology, with special emphasis on chemical and physical principles. Attention is also given to the scientific method and to the ways science affects the life of humanity on earth. (This course has replaced GSC 2114 General Physical Science.)
Students are encouraged to complete GSC 1121 Experiments in Physical Science: A Laboratory Manual within the same period of enrollment for a total of four credits.
