GEOL 302 - Earth Science Connections Laboratory


Units: 1
Laboratory investigations demonstrating connections between integrated Earth system science (geology, atmosphere, oceanography, planetary science) and other natural sciences and engineering. The course focuses on K-12 Next Generation Science Standards with the goal of teaching science with confidence. Concurrent enrollment in GEOL 301 recommended.

Prerequisites: GEOL 100, and Mathematics/QR Placement Category I or II, or completion of GE area B4.
Credit Restrictions: Not for Geology or Environmental Science major credit.
Equivalent Quarter Course: GEOL 3012.
Possible Instructional Methods: Hybrid Only.
Grading: A-F or CR/NC (student choice).
Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  1. Design a laboratory/activity-based lesson for middle-school students connecting Earth science with another STEM discipline,
  2. Demonstrate advanced knowledge of laboratory activities related to Earth Science, including planetary science, geology, meteorology, climatology and oceanography,
  3. Demonstrate advanced and/or focused science content knowledge in Earth science using appropriate vocabulary and referencing appropriate concepts (such as models, uncertainties, hypotheses, theories, and technologies),
  4. Apply advanced quantitative skills (such as statistics, algebraic solutions, interpretation of graphical data) to scientific problems in a laboratory/activity setting,
  5. Critically analyze scientific claims and data,
  6. Apply science content knowledge to contemporary scientific issues (e.g. global warming) and technologies (e.g. renewable energy), where appropriate.
