Provides a review and discussion of the history of energy usage, the relation between energy usage and quality of life, the societal impact of energy use, and the environmental constraints on energy usage. Emphasis is placed on the role that engineering disciplines play in solving energy problems. The full impact that the various energy alternatives have on economic and environmental issues will be reviewed in order to provide a rational basis for energy choices now and in the future. The course also provides foundational experience using units, 2D and 3D coordinate geometry, vector algebra and scientific problem solving in preparation for higher level courses. Prerequisite: C or better in MATH 1426 (or concurrent enrollment).
