100 level undergraduate course

The Scientific Inquiry Foundation Track (SIFT) serves as a foundation for future studies in the natural and social sciences and in mathematics and for life-long learning. Scholarship in these scientific disciplines have 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. An introduction to the fundamental mathematical principles and operations used in undergraduate courses in the physical and social sciences. Topics include sets, logic, probability, statistics, number theory, algebra, and geometry. The course includes a module on scientific method which is common to all SIFT courses.
