LACR 22X - Scientific Inquiry Foundation Track

3 credits
The Scientific Inquiry Foundation Track (SIFT) serves as a foundation for future studies in the natural and social sciences, in mathematics, and for life-long learning. Scholarship in these scientific disciplines has influenced our culture in significant ways - both directly as a result of ongoing research and indirectly as new scientific ideas and theories are developed and applied within the context of important issues and concerns in the larger society. By the end of this course, successful students will: 1. Demonstrate understanding of the nature of science and how scientific research is conducted. 2. Demonstrate understanding of the ethical considerations associated with scientific inquiry. 3. Demonstrate ability to approach questions or problems using a scientific perspective. 4. Demonstrate ability to analyze information and present conclusions. For all SIFT courses, student must have first matriculated at UArts after Fall 2005. Enrollment in BS, BFA, or BM degree program required. This is a description of the SIFT course category. Any course numbered LACR 22- will meet this requirement. For example: LACR 221 SIFT: Problem Solving
