Description

Class Experience

This course will provide the student with an introduction to the concepts of modern astronomy, the origin and history of the Universe, and the formation of the Earth and the solar system. Students will compare the Earth's properties with those of the other planets and explore how the heavens have influenced human thought and action. The course gives a description of astronomical phenomena using the laws of physics. The course treats many standard topics including planets, stars, the Milky Way and other galaxies, and black holes. Laboratory exercises include experiments in light properties, measurement of radiation from celestial sources, and observations.

Students will be provided periodic assessments, but these are optional. Parents can grade students in regard to completion of assignments or by using the assessments. All assessments will be presented on Quizlet. Quizlet is free, so please create an account for your child to use. Creating an account will save their work on the site. I will use Quizlet, using my teacher subscription, and then share the link with your child on the Outschool class page. Students can use the Quizlet link to practice notecards, listen to the notecards be read for our auditory learners. play the matching game for our gamer students, and then take a practice test for assessment purposes. Quizlet grades all assessments, and students will be able to retake all assessments til they are happy with the grade given. Visit www.quizlet.com to create a student account beforehand. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
