Introduction to Astronomy
This course will teach the fundamentals of astronomy. We will discuss topics such as the Solar System, radiation, the star cycle, and more. Students are not expected to be familiar with any of the concepts yet, as this is an introductory course. We will cover some pretty challenging concepts, so get ready for a wild ride.
Don't expect much homework outside of a few online quizzes, which won't take too much time.
