Lake Superior College

ASTR 1101 - Introduction to Astronomy - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
Students in astronomy will be introduced to several aspects of the universe. Students will see how astronomical ideas have developed through history and how our ideas about the universe (and our place in it) have changed. They will investigate the motions of the sun, moon, stars, and visible planets. They will learn to identify the major constellations in the night sky and will become aware of changes that occur in the sky with the passage of the seasons. Student will discover what has been learned through exploration of the planets, moons, and other bodies in our solar system. They will learn how the sun produces energy, and how stars form, evolve, and die. Students will discover how galaxies are organized and what their motions teach us about the origin and evolution of the universe. MTC goal area: (3) Natural Sciences. (Prerequisites: College-level reading and MATH0450) (3 hrs lec/2 hrs lab/0 hrs OJT)

St. Cloud Technical and Community College

ASTR 1301 - Astronomy Lab - 1 credits
Natural Science (03)
Meets MN Transfer Goal 3 - Natural Sciences. This is an introductory astronomy lab course designed for non-science majors. It can be taken by itself as a stand-alone course or in conjunction with an Astronomy course. In this course students will learn about the constellations, stars, telescopes, instruments and measurements astronomers make to determine the distances to the stars and planetary bodies. This laboratory course will focus on gaining an understanding of the instruments, observations, measurements, and calculations used by astronomers to determine the properties of astronomical objects and the distances to these astronomical objects. Student Learning Outcomes: * Conduct experiments to test hypotheses and mathematical formulas. * Use appropriate computer technology and software to perform experiments, perform analysis, and prepare reports. * Identify diverse asterisms, planets, and starts and learn how to discover astronomical objects in the sky. * Verify theoretical astronomical concepts through practical investigation. * Communicate astronomical theory, experimental results and real-world applications of astronomical concepts and laws. * Demonstrate cooperative learning skills.
