Description: Seattle Central Community College offers this course on the biodiversity of the Pacific Northwest. The course aims to help students understand how environmental justice affects their lives, cultural communities, and identities. Each week’s class has a section in which mathematical concepts are used to understand and organize the information learned about. This is an 18-credit course that actually encompasses five or more separate classes with the same theme: biodiversity in the Seattle area. As a result, departmental separations disappear, and the interactions of many disciplines becomes apparent.
