This is an introductory course with no pre-requisites and is designed for non-majors. There is a separate lab section that is required, but not dedicated to this lecture (other lectures feed into the same set of labs). Most students take the course as a general education requirement.
All goals are listed on the course website under "objectives". They are quite detailed, and are too long to retype here.
How course activities and course structure help students achieve these goals:
Students know that the goals are the basis for the course. They know that all exams are derived from the learning objectives. Exam performance is directly correlated to meeting the goals.
