Nat Sci Section To Stress Math

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

For the first time, a lower-level Natural Sciences course offers a section which will stress mathematics, Nathaniel P. Carleton '51, teaching fellow in General Education, announced yesterday.

Gerald Holton, associate professor of Physics, emphasized that this is in no sense an honors section for those with high grades. Nevertheless, he stated, "I am endeavoring to see if we can teach to non-scientists as rigorous and profound a program as we do to professional scientists, taking advantage of the special aims of each."

The course introduced a laboratory section two years ago.
