1.Buku Acuan

“The Sciences: An Integrated Approach”, 5th Ed., James Trefill & R.M. Hazen,

John Wiley & Sons.


  1. Latar Belakang
  • Kurikulum tradisional bidang sain di sebagian besar universitas gagal memberikan pendidikan basic science yang diperlukan untuk memahami beberapa isu dalam bidang sain dan teknologi yang berkembang di masyarakat,
  1. Tujuan
  • Providing education for people who will not be scientist but who need some knowledge of science to function as citizens.


  1. Outcome
  • Mahasiswa benar-benar memahami bahwa dalam real life, tidak ada pengkotakan antara sain, teknologi, seni dan bisnis.


  1. Approach:
  • This course encompasses physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, astronomy, and emphasize general principle and their application to real world situation rather than esoteric detail.
  • The emphasis of the course is the development of a student’s understanding of the scientific process – as opposed to just the accumulation of scientific facts, and to elucidate the historical significance of key principles and underscores the integrated nature of scientific knowledge.
