Neal Nelson, 8676738
MW, 124p
CRN: 40113
This class is an introduction to the mathematical ideas behind logical reasoning and how it forms a powerful system for deducing new truths from existing assumptions. The course will cover both formal logic as well as applications to critical reasoning. Logical reasoning was introduced to us by the early Greeks, but not fully understood until the early 20th century when mathematics and science had great hopes for an absolute foundation for all of mathematics. Although Godel dashed the hopes for a single complete mathematical system, methods of logic now provide a rigorous foundation for both mathematics and computing. Class activities will be primarily reading, problem solving and discussion with regular lectures as needed. Nuclear Energy: An Introduction4 credits full session
Dana Kelly 8676788
Tu, 610p
Prerequisites: Algebra proficiency, familiarity with physics at high school level.
CRN: 40130 (UG), 40131 (MES)
Energy is at the core of many problems related to the environment and policymaking, both national and international. Nuclear power does not produce greenhouse gases, and is thus a clean alternative for baseload power plants. A consortium of U.S. companies is poised to construct one or more new nuclear plants in the U.S. This class covers the basics of nuclear power, including basic reactor physics, energy transfer, radiation protection, accident analysis (including discussion of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl), regulation and the issue of waste. It will provide students in environmental studies and public administration the background needed to make informed decisions and give advice about nuclear power to policymakers.
