Astronomy 100/101 Lecture, Spring 2013
Department of Astronomy

Welcome to Astronomy 100/101! In this course you will discover how the forces of nature shape our understanding of the cosmos and explore the origin, structure, and evolution of the Earth, moons and planets, comets and asteroids, the Sun, other stars, the Milky Way, other galaxies, and the Universe as a whole, all while marveling at the spectacular beauty and diversity of the heavens.  Lectures, readings, in-class activities, and bi-weekly homework and quizzes will combine to help you truly understand the physical processes at work in the Universe while improving your ability to solve problems, think critically, and communicate effectively. 

"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
