Natural Sciences and Mathematics

Living in our technologically advanced society requires that we understand the natural world upon which we depend. The pursuit of truth and the discovery of beauty in our world demand an ability to observe carefully and understand, appreciate, question, and challenge conclusions generated through the enterprise of science. This PEAK prepares students for such an endeavor by enabling them to develop fluency in quantitative reasoning and problem solving, understanding of the methods, uses, powers, and limitations of science and mathematics, and knowledge of the concepts, principles, and theories underlying these disciplines.
