Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 02 - Critical Thinking
    • Gather factual information and apply it to a given problem in a manner that is relevant, clear, comprehensive, and conscious of possible bias in the information selected.
    • Imagine and seek out a variety of possible goals, assumptions, interpretations, or perspectives which can give alternative meanings or solutions to given situations or problems.
    • Analyze the logical connections among the facts, goals, and implicit assumptions relevant to a problem or claim; generate and evaluate implications that follow from them.
    • Recognize and articulate the value assumptions which underlie and affect decisions, interpretations, analyses, and evaluations made by ourselves and others.
  • 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 09 - Ethical/Civic Resp
    • Analyze and reflect on the ethical dimensions of legal, social, and scientific issues.
    • Recognize the diversity of political motivations and interests of others.
    • Identify ways to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

Description
Interactions between the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, not limited to an examination of patterns of natural disaster, such as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, tsunami, landslides and drought. Patterns of natural occurrence and their effect on human institutions is a cornerstone of this course. How government agencies, private business, interest groups are embedded within the human response to such events is analyzed. Understanding the range of human responses (i.e. political, legal, social, economic, etc.) is explored in context of ethics and civic responsibility.
