Website Detail Page

written by Paul Francis
This website provides role-playing and problem-based exercises for introductory and advanced astronomy students.  Small groups and group interactions are used to stimulate discussion and learning. The exercises include star and planet formation, the runaway greenhouse effect, life in space, cosmology, galaxies, redshift, and telescopes. This website also provides two on-line papers about the benefits of role-playing and problem-based exercises.
