Astronomy 1

Astronomy 1 (ASTR 1) is a three unit survey of astronomy course which meets for three hours of lecture per week. It can be taken for a grade or for credit/no-credit, and it has no prerequisite. The catalog description of Astronomy 1 is "This course is an introduction to astronomy. Topics to be covered include the physical nature of the solar system, stars and stellar systems, and the universe as a whole, including not only their current state, but also theories of their origin and evolution." For further information about Astronomy 1 course offerings, see

Astronomy 1 courses taught by Professor Sholle

Astronomy 1 is a lecture course. If you wish to meet a lab requirement for physical science, you will also need to take Astronomy 1L, offered in the evening. You don't need to take Astronomy 1L during the same semester that you take Astronomy 1. However, in order to learn the most and have an easier time doing it, you should probably take Astronomy 1L the same semester as you take Astronomy 1, or take Astronomy 1L in a semester after you have completed Astronomy 1.

Astronomy 1L

Astronomy 1L (ASTR 1L) is a two unit laboratory course which meets for one hour of lecture per week and three hours of lab per week. It can be taken for a grade or for credit/no-credit, and it has no prerequisite. The catalog description of Astronomy 1L is "This course provides an introduction to observational astronomy. Various projects provide training in astronomical observation, and in the analysis of numeric and graphical data. Passing both ASTR 1 and ASTR 1L satisfies a physical science lab requirement." For further information about Astronomy 1L course offerings, see
