This course serves as an introduction to the pre-modern Islamic artistic traditions of the Mediterranean, Near East, and Central and South Asia. It surveys core Islamic beliefs, the basic characteristics of Islamic art and architecture, and art and architecture created under each dynasty and ruling party. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: identify the core beliefs of Islam, the major characteristics of Islamic art, and the major forms of Islamic architecture; identify major pre-modern Islamic works of art and monuments from the Middle East, Northern Africa, Spain, and South Asia; explain how the core beliefs of Islam contributed to the basic characteristics of Islamic art and architecture and the secular art works and architecture of the Islamic world; identify the succeeding dynasties that ruled the Islamic world; explain the important role that the patronage of art and architecture had played in definitions of kingship.

This survey chemistry course is designed to introduce students to the world of chemistry. In this course, we will study chemistry from the ground up, learning the basics of the atom and its behavior. We will apply this knowledge to understand the chemical properties of matter and the changes and reactions that take place in all types of matter. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Define the general term 'chemistry.' Distinguish between the physical and chemical properties of matter. Distinguish between mixtures and pure substances. Describe the arrangement of the periodic table. Perform mathematical operations involving significant figures. Convert measurements into scientific notation. Explain the law of conservation of mass, the law of definite composition, and the law of multiple proportions. Summarize the essential points of Dalton's atomic theory. Define the term 'atom.' Describe electron configurations. Draw Lewis structures for molecules. Name ionic and covalent compounds using the rules for nomenclature of inorganic compounds. Explain the relationship between enthalpy change and a reaction's tendency to occur.

Islam, The Middle East, and The West
Conditions of Use:

This course will introduce the student to the history of the Middle East from the rise of Islam to the twenty-first century. The course will emphasize the encounters and exchanges between the Islamic world and the West. By the end of the course, the student will understand how Islam became a sophisticated and far-reaching civilization and how conflicts with the West shaped the development of the Middle East from the medieval period to the present day. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: identify and describe the nature of pre-Islamic society, culture, and religion. They will also be able to describe the subsequent rise of the prophet Muhammad and his monotheistic religion, Islam; identify and describe the elements of Islamic law, religious texts and practices, and belief systems; identify and describe the rise of the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties in the Middle East. Students will also be able to compare and contrast the two empires; identify and describe the emergence of the Umayyad dynasty in Spain. Students will also be able to analyze the conflicts between Muslims and Christians on the Iberian Peninsula; identify and describe the Crusades. They will be able to describe both Muslim and Christian perceptions of the holy wars; identify and describe the impact of the Mongol invasions on the Middle East; compare and contrast the Ottoman and Safavid empires; analyze the decline of the Ottoman Empire and the beginning of European imperialism/domination of the Middle East in the 1800s; identify and describe how and why European powers garnered increased spheres of influence after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the end of World War I; analyze and describe the rise of resistance and independence movements in the Middle East; identify and describe the rise of Islamic nationalism and the emergence of violent anti-Western sentiment; analyze (and synthesize) the relationship between the Middle East and the West between the 600s and the present day; analyze and interpret primary source documents that elucidate the exchanges and conflicts between the Islamic world and the West over time.

فهم العلوم: كيف تعمل العلوم فعلاً
Rating

إن رسالة "فهم العلوم" هو أن يقدم مورد ممتع وسهل الوصول ومجاني يعمل على التعريف الدقيق بماهية العلوم وكيفية عملها فعلاً. إن المنهج العلمي شيق، إلا أن الشروحات القياسية غالباً ما تغفل عن الطبيعة الديناميكية للعلوم. وتؤثر العلوم فينا جميعاً كل يوم، لكن كثيراً ما يشعر الناس بأنهم منعزلون عن العلوم. إن العلوم هي مسعى إنساني مكثف، إلا أن العديد من التصويرات تخفي جوانب الشغف والفضول، بل وحتى المنافسات والمكائد، التي تميز كل المشروعات الإنسانية. يقدم "فهم العلوم" للمستخدمين نظرة من الداخل على المبادئ العامة والمناهج والمحفزات التي تندرج في كل العلوم. يتضمن هذا المشروع في رحمه محاولة لإعادة الاندماج مع العلوم، والتي تبدأ بإعداد المعلم وتنتهي بالفهم العام الأوسع للعلوم. وتضم الأهداف العاجلة للمشروع: (1) تحسين فهم المعلم لطبيعة العمل العلمي، (2) توفير الموارد والاستراتيجيات التي تشجع معلمي الصفوف من الحضانة وحتى السادس عشر على تدعيم طبيعة العلوم طوال ممارستهم لتدريس العلوم، (3) توفير مرجع واضح وغزير للطلاب وعموم الناس، والذي يصور المسعى العلمي بدقة. لقد جرى إنشاء موقع "فهم العلوم" بواسطة متحف متحجرات جامعة كاليفورنيا بمدينة بيركلي، وذلك بالتعاون مع مجموعة متنوعة من العلماء والمعلمين، وتم تمويله بواسطة المؤسسة الوطنية للعلوم1. علماً بأن "فهم العلوم" كان قد استلهم واستوحى فكرته في البداية من عملنا المتعلق بمشروع "فهم التطور" الذي أبرز حقيقة أن العديد من المفاهيم المغلوطة حول التطور تنبع من سوء فهم طبيعة العلوم. فضلاً عن ذلك، يشير البحث إلى أن الطلاب والمعلمين في كل المستويات الدراسية لديهم فهم منقوص لطبيعة ومنهج العلوم، الأمر الذي يمكن أن نعزوه إلى الفصول المدرسية حيث يتم فيها تدريس العلوم بوصفها عملية بسيطة وخطية ولا تتولد عنها أشياء. وهذا التصوير الكاذب والمُقفِر يجعل الطلاب ينفصلون عن العلوم، ويثبط الدعم العام لها، وربما يساعد على تفسير المؤشرات الحالية بأن الولايات المتحدة تفقد ثقلها العالمي في مجال العلوم. فحتى وأبعد من الاهتمام بصحة الاقتصاد الأميركي، فإن عامة الناس بداخلهم احتياج أصيل للتقييم النقدي للطروحات المتضاربة للدليل العلمي في وسائل الإعلام. ولكي يفعلوا هذا، عليهم فهم مواطن القوة والقيود والمناهج الأساسية للمشروع الذي أنتج تلك الادعاءات العلمية. يقوم "فهم العلوم" بخطوة هامة نحو الوفاء بهذه الاحتياجات.
