Questions:
How much Math do I need to know
to pass this Course?
This course is intended to provide you with a conceptual understanding
of the principal constituents of the universe and how they relate to one
another. Some of these ideas cannot be expressed without some accompanying
mathematical derivations. This math is, however, no more complicated than
simple algebra and the understanding of proportions. Understanding scientific
notation (10^{5}=100,000) is essential. Supplementary handouts will
be available for most mathematical topics.
What is the format of the quizzes
and exams?
They will be in a format of multiple choices and
essay questions. The difficulty level is comparable to that of the online
practice quizzes and homework assignments.
