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.

The Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) implements and coordinates reasonable accommodations and disability-related services to promote full participation of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of life.

The Rehabilitation Act defines a disability as an individual who has a physical, mental, or learning disability, which substantially limits one or more major life activity (i.e., seeing, hearing, speaking, walking, sitting, standing, breathing, reading, writing, or performing mathematical calculations, and caring for oneself); or who has a record of such impairment; or who is regarded as having such impairment. Both the impairment and the limitation of a major life activity must be established to be eligible under the ADA.

One Project #1 (Option #1):

The Scientific Method/Controlled Experiment Paper:

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......

The Subject Code for this section: C7S (for example Subject: C7S First Email)

All Activities and Testing remain Open until 11:59 pm August 20th therefore there is no late work except the midterm proctored exams (The  7 week term ends August 20th.  The August 20th day assumes August 22nd will be the C7 term grade deadline. August 19th and August 20th are now called completion days (replaces the old final exam days). Traditionally grades are usually due at 10 pm two days after the last day of completion.

The Midterm exam must be completed by the end of August 5th for full credit. After August 5th, the grade will be zero, and gateway points will be subtracted from earned online quizzing.

The 1st week explorations must be completed by July 8th. Submission after July 8th (or the day the points are posted in  Blackboard) will earn no points. Likewise the Scientific Method project option (Project #1 or #24) must be completed by August 5th to earn full credit

Students SHOULD Complete at least two to three chapters per week to finish. Each chapter take several hours of study and testing. You can not do 15 chapters in one week. It is up to the student to set her/his own personal weekly deadlines and assume the professor has programmed Blackboard that the chapter must be completed by midnight on that weekly due date.

The student will notice that the due date for all online testing is August 25th. Because there are so many 3-5 question short testing, a student who qualifies for an incomplete final grade will be able to continue working after August 20th, but must be done no later than the end of the August 25th or earlier when the college shuts down Blackboard.

Please note the college will terminate using Blackboard after the conclusion of Summer Term 2019, and will switch to the Learning Management System (LMS) Canvas, which is the LMS used at UNF.

No optional projects will be accepted after August 21st
