The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
Student projects designed as supplements to an undergraduate cosmology course are available on the LAMBDA website (Legacy Archive for Microwave Background Data Analysis). One project shows students how to accurately compute ages and distances numerically in an expanding LCDM universe. Another project has students use the CAMB simulation (Code for Anisotropies in the Microwave Background) to explore CMB maps and power spectra to understand how the densities of various components of the universe are measured.
