ASTRONOMY LABS: A Concept Oriented Approach by Nate McCrady & Emily Rice Available now via Pearson Collections. Instructors can select from 40 labs (at a cost of $ per lab to the bookstore, for a typical cost of $25 per semester) covering topics from quantitative reasoning, Earth’s perspective, tools for astronomical observations, Solar System & exoplanets, stars, galaxies, and cosmology.

This book provides a chronological introduction to the sciences of astronomy and cosmology based on the reading and analysis of significant selections from classic texts, such as Ptolemy’s Almagest, Kepler’s Epitome of Copernican Astronomy, Shapley’s Galaxies, and Lemaître’s The Primeval Atom.

Each chapter begins with a short introduction followed by a reading selection. If astronomy is new to you, many of the ideas and terms in this book may be unfamiliar. Astronomy is like any new language: it may take a while to become a good conversationalist.

During the 14 lab sessions, we will encounter objects located in our own solar system, stars filling the Milky Way, and objects located much further away in the far reaches of space.

Providing the tools and know-how to apply the principles of astronomy first-hand, these 43 laboratory exercises each contain an introduction that clearly shows budding astronomers why the particular topic of that lab is of interest and relevant to astronomy.

About one-third of the exercises are devoted solely to observation, and no mathematics is required beyond simple high school algebra and. Format: Astronomy meets once a week for 3 hours. An instructor spends minutes at the beginning of each lab providing background.

Students then work in small groups on laboratory exercises, turning in a report at the end of each lab. The lab exercises and are contained in a lab manual available from the SupeStore. There. A Microscale Approach to Organic Laboratory Techniques.
