Goals & Outcomes
  • Appreciating science in general, and astronomy in specific.
  • Developing a working knowledge of the scientific method and how to apply it to real world situations.
  • Critically analyzing and evaluating information, scientific or otherwise
  • Diagram the positions of the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon during solar and lunar eclipses.
  • Predict the phase of the Moon that would be seen in the sky, given the positions of the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, and the observer.

Clicker questions coming

My advice:

  • Take out some notebook paper.
  • I will fill in the blanks on the board. Copy info down.
  • Write your guess someplace off to the side so you can cover up your answer when you study your notes
  • Write the correct answer in another place you can cover up, NOT immediately next to your first guess.
  • This will make it hard for you to peek at the right answer when studying your notes
