For students curious about the universe, Astronomy offers a glimpse into the fundamentals. It does not require a strong background in algebra or trigonometry. Instead, it usesĀ  an activity-based approach that teaches students the basic laws of astronomy and explores the locations of planets, stars, and other astronomical units as seen on earth – past, present, or future. Students do not need a telescope. To facilitate learning, the course includes numerous demonstrations and hands-on activities.
