Course Description

Astrophysics is the application of physics to understand and interpret the art of observation and the measurement side of astronomy. This course will help tie astronomy to the different physics concepts that the student has experienced as a physics student. The main goal of this course is to help the students see that astrophysics is not just a high technology research branch, but as part of everyday living.


Course Schedule: Spring 2000

Attendance Policy

Student must attend all classes and is responsible for all work assigned. If a student misses a class, he/she must contact the instructor for make up work. Past experience shows that students who succeed in this course are those who attend class regularly.


The course is tentatively divided into three main units. Each unit will consist of several chapters that are chosen as an introduction to astrophysics.
