ONLINE SYLLABUS AND DESCRIPTION: The course Science and Society (Science 10) offers a general audience a venue to explore scientific thought and culture and its role in approaching current major global issues such as climate change, public health, energy and the environment. At the same time the course puts mankind in its proper geologic (temporal) and galactic (spatial) "place" by reviewing current scientific thought and evidence for evolution and the origins of matter.

More importantly, it reveals, through a series of concrete case studies, the complex dynamics in our current technological society, and the key decisions that must be made to adapt to a rapidly transforming human and global environment.

(Science 10, Fr. Daniel McNamara, S.J., Ph.D. & Nathaniel Libatique, Ph.D.)

SEMESTER 1 - 2015:

SEMESTER 2: November 2014 to March 2015 (Libatique):
  • Upload to Google Site Due Friday 2 pm. Submit A4 size hardcopies at ECCE Department by 4pm.
  • How to submit reaction papers and the Take Home Long Test reqiurement: I will ask our beadle Howi to set up a google site where you can upload your submissions. PDF format please. PLEASE do not submit Google Docs, it takes a long time to open such files. All files submitted via upload should follow the filename convention: "Surname, Firstname - Reflection" and "Surname, Firstname - Title of Article/Piece".
  • Reaction/Reflection paper to Interlinks and/or Ateneo research (if you happened to have attended a thesis defense outside of Interlinks). Two pages maximum if single-spaced one column. Three pages maximum of double spaced one column. Personal slant, no need to pretend that you are an expert. Maybe more like a review or a blog in style. A photo of yourself in attendance would be a plus. The primary focus of the activity is that you get to attend and immerse yourself in the activity, and interact with Q and A with real live researchers, the Reaction Paper is simply a closure type activity. So please do not attempt to write a reaction paper if you were not present in the event (I have heard suggestions along these lines). Read the next bullet ....
  • In lieu of a Reaction/Reflection Paper to Interlinks (in case your schedule prevented you from attending) I suggest that you read a previously un-assigned scientific technical article(s) from Science, Nature, American Scientist, The Economist, IEEE Spectrum or some other publication of similar content/level and write a reaction to the reading. Attach the text of the original article in your submission.The 5-article special report from The Economist "Let there be light" is one such example. An article from Yahoo News - Science is NOT a good source. Include a hardcopy of the original article(s) in your submission so I also have direct access to the article.
  • Take home Long Test - Paper is due on Friday 20 March this week via Google site upload. Three pages maximum, single space, two column, in the style of an article from The Economist or Time Magazine, except that references are cited using any style of citation that you are used to. Add one or two tables, graphics or figures to spice up or emphasize a point or two. References are required to demonstrate that you have read weighty and high quality material and that you have the ability to weave this content into your own creative argument-thesis.
  • This post has now been superseded: "Our last long exam is next week, Wednesday 18 March. Final Exam is on 27 March and will be optional. I will post pre final class standings on the 24th of March Tuesday"by our Take Home long test - paper requirement.
  • INTERLINKS: Friday 13 March 2015, Leong Hall Roofdeck, 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Poster Exhibit (students are on hand to explain and demonstrate) of research work in the School of Science and Engineering.
  • A special report from The Economist, "Let there be light", January 17, 2015. 5 articles.
  • Documentaries on the Keppler Space Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope. Please inquire from classmates regarding access to the videos.
  • Readings from "Stellar Origins, Human Ways": (1) Dayrit, "Sustainable Development: An Evolving Paradigm for the 21st Century". (2) Nina Rojas, "Born in the Universe: Approaching the Origin of Life". (3) Daniel McNamara, "A Return to the Beginning".

  • I'm postponing our test to Wednesday 21 January 2015. Class time. Please disseminate.
  • My exams are both objective and subjective. The subjective question often asks you for your views on a particular point discussed in a lecture, reading (required or optional-bonus pts) or video. So after reading or viewing media, pls spend time taking notes and reflecting on the material before you move on. Certainly, cramming won't work hence i am posting the materials in advance.
