Welcome to Astronomy!
Astronomy is a fascinating area of science that has captivated human curiosity for centuries. In this class we will explore how we can measure sizes of and distances to astronomical objects, orbital motion, how objects in space interact through gravity with applications to the solar system and galaxy, and how light is characterized, measured, and used to learn about objects in the universe. This is a fun and engaging course that will require active participation in discovery activities throughout the year.
Students, please be sure to check Canvas for all assignments and updates for this course.
Parents, be sure to check email communication regarding the class. I don't send messages frequently, but do like to check in every few weeks or so. I always love hearing from my students' parents and am happy to answer any questions you have.
