Basic concepts in physics, chemistry, and the solar system are investigated. Emphasis is placed on basic principles and their applications to modern technology and everyday experiences. Some problems requiring simple math are discussed and solved, but detailed mathematical derivations are more appropriate in other courses. Part of this course is also committed to reviewing historical developments of scientific thought, examining the perceived conflict between science and Christianity, and analyzing evidence for a Creator from scientific discoveries.
