Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
    • Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about science-related topics and policies.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Explain the basic structure and function of various natural ecosystems and of human adaptive strategies within those systems.
    • Discern patterns and interrelationships of bio-physical and socio-cultural systems.
    • Describe the basic institutional arrangements (social, legal, political, economic, religious) that are evolving to deal with environmental and natural resource challenges.
    • Evaluate critically environmental and natural resource issues in light of understandings about interrelationships, ecosystems, and institutions.
    • Propose and assess alternative solutions to environmental problems.
    • Articulate and defend the actions they would take on various environmental issues.

This course emphasizes the fundamental concepts of ecology as it pertains to the impact of humans on their environment. It addresses the demands placed on the biosphere by the exploitation of natural resources and energy, the creation of pollution and the disposal of waste. This course is interdisciplinary, combining concepts from the natural and physical sciences (e.g. biology, chemistry, geology, physics) with the social sciences (e.g. economics, politics, ethics, history) to present an understanding of how wise stewardship of earth's resources can result in the long-term sustainability of our shared environment. Meets MnTC Goal 3 and MnTC Goal 10
