1 DEREE COLLEGE SYLLABUS FOR: ES 1010 ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: ENERGY RESOURCES AND POLLUTION 3/1½/4 LEVEL 4 -UK CREDITS: 20 (Updated Fall 2010) PREREQUISITES: CATALOG DESCRIPTION: None Principles of environmental science including a discussion of non-renewable and renewable energy resources, water and air pollution, global atmospheric changes, hazardous and solid waste management. Environmental policy and management issues are also discussed, with emphasis on sustainable solutions. RATIONALE: Environmental Science: Energy Resources and Pollution is a science course with laboratories that fulfils the general education requirement in science. It is designed for students with little or no background in natural or environmental sciences and aims at giving them a more thorough understanding of major environmental issues of our days that reflect the human impact on the environment. The course provides a scientific background on issues such as energy resources, global climate change, ozone depletion, air and water pollution, hazardous chemicals and the solid waste problem. Current management practices and policies as well as options that lead toward a more sustainable future are discussed. The knowledge gained in this course may help students take more informed decisions concerning the environment in their future lives and careers. It is a required course for environmental studies majors, as it provides the background needed for more advanced courses of the program. LEARNING OUTCOMES: As a result of taking this course, the student should: 1. Demonstrate knowledge of core concepts and principles on the following topics: non-renewable and renewable energy resources, environmental hazards and human health, air pollution, climate change, ozone depletion, water pollution, solid waste management. (Knowledge) 2. Acquire the ability to apply the concept of sustainability on the analysis of major environmental issues of contemporary societies and of their interdisciplinary nature. (Knowledge) 3. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the scientific method and how this applies to the study of environmental issues, as well as of the interdisciplinary approach needed in problem solving. (Knowledge, cognitive skills) 4. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the relationship between environment and society, and of the role

2 2 of economics and politics in addressing issues of environmental sustainability. (Knowledge) 5. Develop skills for using basic methods in environmental science including the ability to acquire, process and evaluate data. (Cognitive, Practical, Transferable Skills) 6. Acquire the ability to use appropriate laboratory and field equipment competently and safely. (Practical Skills) METHOD OF TEACHING AND LEARNING: In congruence with the learning and teaching strategy of the college, the following tools are used: Class lectures, interactive learning (class discussions, group work), video presentations, and practical problems solved in class. Exercises and primary source documents are assigned as homework and are discussed and reviewed in class Laboratory activities (including practical work and laboratory reports). CD-ROMS and Textbook Web site. Office hours: students are encouraged to make full use of the office hours of their instructor, where they can ask questions, see their exam paper, and/or go over lecture/lab material. Use of a blackboard site, where instructors post lecture notes, assignment instructions, timely announcements, as well as additional resources. ASSESSMENT: Multiple "diagnostic" tests formative (in-class or online) 0 In-class midterm examination (2-hour) - summative 30 Final examination (2-hour, comprehensive) - summative 45 Lab reports / Topics - summative 25 Reports on the lab activities-field trip /Review of a special topic and presentation in class Total of all assessments: 100 The formative tests aim to prepare students for the examinations. Students are expected to submit feedback on their performance. The lab reports test the practical component of the course (learning outcomes 5 and 5). The midterm examination tests Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 The final examination also tests Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and it is comprehensive.
