CLASS 291 - Introduction to Scientific Terminology *3 (3-0-0)

The Greek and Latin elements of modern scientific termniology, with an examination of its history and cultural background.

Description: The vast majority of technical terms in the sciences (e.g., Biological Sciences, Geology, Medicine, Dentisty) derive from Greek and Latin and understanding such terms is often a daunting task for students who lack a background in Greek and Latin. In this course, students will learn the Greek and Latin elements from which scientific terms are created and so develop a broader scientific vocabulary and a greater understanding of origins, formation and meaning of technical vocabulary. As a spoonful of sugar to help the terminology go down, we will also examine the historical, cultural, artistic, and literary background to provide some context for the creation of the scientific terminology from Greek and Latin roots. In addition to making it easier to understand and become conversant with the drier aspects of the topic, this additional material is interesting in its own right and gives students further insight into the historical development of scientific thinking. No prior knowledge of Greek or Latin is required or assumed.
