These sections will focus both on science methods and provide a scientific perspective on “Alternative Medicine”. However, we will also use a few basic laboratory experiments as a vehicle to pursue these methods. The course will attempt to answer the question of "How do we know" within the context of science. We will briefly examine history and philosophy of science and the terminology used. We will examine sources of information. We will use information on WWW in order to collect data. These data will be analyzed in a variety of ways and, hopefully, conclusions drawn. Computers will be extensively used. The class will meet for 5 hours each week and there will be many out-of-class assignments.
Prerequisite or Corequisite GSCI 103A
