GEOL 190. Introduction to Quantitative Geoscience. 3 Hours GE12 / N.

This applied, introductory-level program will explore topics in geology, hydrogeology, physics, chemistry, and biology from a mathematical perspective. The course is designed for students with a desire to expand their mathematical skills, building on practical applications in the natural sciences. The study of lab and field sciences and mathematical problem-solving through rigorous, quantitative, and interdisciplinary investigations will be emphasized. The course will take students from a review of arithmetic and algebraic manipulations, to the use of logarithms, and functions, through series, trigonometry and graphing, and finish with an introduction to the elements of calculus and statistics. The course will utilize Excel as platform for calculating and graphing numerical examples of the problems presented. We expect students in this course to emerge with confidence in the basic use of mathematics commonly applied to investigate and model the natural world. Prerequisite: MATH 002, or two years of high school algebra and a score of 22 or higher on ACT mathematics, or a qualifying score on the mathematics placement test. LEC.
