Science Majors vs Nonmajors: Is There a Difference?
Sundberg, Marshall D.; Dini, Michael L.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v22 n5 p299-304 Mar-Apr 1993
Argues that reform efforts should not be directed to redefining the content of nonmajors' course to make it more "interesting " to students. Although courses should be interesting, the focus should be on scientific literacy. Focus should be placed on four or five key concepts, and the dichotomy between majors and nonmajors at the introductory level should be dispensed with. (PR)
