General Education Goals
CHE101 can be used to satisfy EKU General Education Element 4B and has been designed to address the following EKU General Education Goals:

Students will be able to:
1. Use appropriate methods of critical thinking and quantitative reasoning to examine issues and to identify solutions. (GE Goal two) 2. Analyze the fundamental natural processes of the world and the interactions of humans and their environment. (GE Goal five) 3. Distinguish the methods that underlie the search for knowledge in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, history, and social and behavioral sciences. (GE Goal seven) 4. Integrate knowledge that will deepen their understanding of, and will inform their own choices about, issues of personal and public importance. (GE Goal eight)

Student Learning Outcomes
