Lecture Tutorials for Introductory Astronomy

Author: Carolyn Stonecipher
Posted: November 2, 2009 at 10:31AM

I am using this in my (first time) high school astronomy class (grades 10-12) and I think it is great.  The students really get involved in discussing the questions and understand the concepts much better.  There is little preparation on my part and the tutorials can be done in a regular non-lab classroon setting.  The questions lead to more questions that the students really want to know; for example, Causes of Moon Phases led to a discussion of what the moon phases would look like to someone in the Southern Hemisphere.  I bought the 2008 second edition for the additional exercises.  Keep them coming!
