ENGG 111 Computer Tools for Scientists and Engineers: Spreadsheets
Late Start: Sep 5 – Nov 14
ENGG 111 is a 1-unit introduction to computer tools and techniques useful for data analysis, problem solving, and communication in science/engineering coursework and professional activities. Students learn to use spreadsheet software (such as Microsoft Excel) to perform routine data analysis, including use of mathematical equations, statistical analysis, graphing, curve fitting, and a variety of numerical problem-solving techniques, and also to communicate analytical results according to standard practices in science and engineering.
Prerequisite: Math 103 or 103AB or 103XY or sufficient score on the Math Assessment Test. Students must submit proof of prerequisite in order to enroll in the course.
Students enrolled in the online section of ENGG 111 may participate in the same lectures as students in the traditional 'face-to-face' section of the course (meets 11:10am – 12:30pm on Wednesdays from Sep 5 to Nov 14). The lectures will be presented simultaneously to students in the computer classroom and via the internet using freely available web-conferencing software (CCC Confer/Elluminate), which allows real-time interaction between students and instructor. All lectures will be archived for later viewing (or re-viewing).
Every week, students will be expected to complete the following activities via the course website: participate in the online lecture or view the lecture archive, complete the interactive video/spreadsheet tutorial, download the weekly homework assignment, and upload the completed homework file. There will also be a more comprehensive project assignment due at the end of the course.
A Midterm Exam and a Final Exam will be administered on designated dates. They can be taken either online or in person at the College of Marin Kentfield Campus.
In addition to internet capability, students will need to have access to Microsoft Excel (preferably 2007 or newer) in order to succeed in the course. Note that students can freely access this software at any of the College of Marin student computer labs.
