Communicate knowledge about safety routes, fire extinguisher location, safe assembly areas and other safety related information.
Course Activities and Design
MCH 100 will be presented by means of audio-visual presentations, textbook study, and assigned research activities. Final written tests in both subject areas complete the course.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Students will be tested in both subject areas using a written final test. Test results will be reviewed with students when not acquiring 100% score in either area and student will correct incorrect results to assure adequate knowledge in these areas.
Student will communicate knowledge received in department tours about safety routes, fire extinguisher locations, safe assembly areas, and related information.
Students will respond to departmental tours to assure knowledge about required safety related issues with articulate and relevant conversations with peers and faculty.
