SINC 110 - The Principals of Science I


Credit(s): 3
The Principals of Science I course is designed for prospective elementary school teachers emphasizing content from the major science disciplines of earth science, biology, chemistry and physics. This course is intended for nonscience majors to enhance their general knowledge, skills, and confidence associated with teaching science in the elementary school. Two semesters will be required in order to adequately cover the basic information, concepts and materials associated with each of the sciences mentioned. Some problem solving is necessary and participants should be familiar with the simple or basic math taught in the elementary grades. The laboratory component will consist primarily of “hands-on” investigations and activities appropriate for inclusion (with modification) into any grade at the elementary level.
