And by Appointment
Students will benefit by taking high school algebra or MAT 0028 prior to enrolling in this course. This course, designed to meet the General Education Requirements for non-science majors, is designed especially for students who wish to gain an understanding of the fundamental nature of physical science from the chemical point of view. The treatment utilizes an approach to scientific concepts and methods, stressing and illustrating principles rather than merely listing phenomena. This course will require proctored testing at an approved location. Students may be charged testing fees at off-campus and virtual testing locations. For additional information and resources, please see the College's Online Learning website at https://www.fscj.edu/academics/schools-of-learning/online-learning/online-course-testing.

Analysis of the Movie Film: Andromeda Strain – 1971

Editorial Review:  .....The movie spends a great deal of time covering the scientific procedures of the high-pressure investigation, and the rising tensions between scientists who have been forced to work in claustrophobic conditions.

  It's all very fascinating if you're interested in scientific method and technological advances, although the film is obviously dated in many of its details......
