MDS 101 - Connecting the Sciences - A Macroscopic Approach

Description: This course introduces basic concepts of biology, chemistry, physics, and geology in order to examine the evolution of life in the context of the evolution of the earth and the evolution of the universe. It develops an understanding of fundamental forces, conservation of energy, heat and temperature, light, stellar evolution, solar energy and photosynthesis, evolution of the earth and its atmosphere, and evolution of life. The many topics investigated include the existence of black holes, current theories of plate tectonics, and extinction of the dinosaurs. The course emphasizes hands-on laboratory investigations. (3 lecture, 3 laboratory hours) Laboratory fee applies.SUNY GEN ED-GLAB; NCC GEN ED-LSCI

MDS 102 - Connecting the Sciences - A Microscopic Approach

Description: Note that MDS 101 is not a prerequisite for this course. This course integrates the study of the physical and life sciences in order to understand the organization of atoms into living and non-living structures-to explore the threshold between the animate and inanimate. The goal is to examine the physics chemistry and biology of a living cell and contrast these cells with inanimate crystals. Students will gain an understanding of atomic and molecular interactions, organic and inorganic molecules, crystals and crystal growth, cellular structure, nucleic acids, and genetic engineering. The course emphasizes hands-on laboratory investigations. (3 lecture, 3 laboratory hours) Laboratory fee applies.)SUNY GEN ED-GLAB; NCC GEN ED-LSCI
