In the Winter Quarter 1972 the Electrical Engineering Department at Ohio State offered a new course for nonengineering students. The course followed the text, The Man Made World, and included a film and guest lecture series. The 25 students who completed the course achieved some appreciation for and facility with quantitative procedures for solving problems and indicated their approval of the course. Adjusting to the wide range in the students' interests and ability, (especially mathematical), and stimulating classroom participation were major difficulties. The course, considered a success, will be offered again in the future on a regular basis, and large enrollments are expected since the course now satisfies the natural science requirement for many students in the University.
