Conceptual Astronomy 1

$28.00$899.00

Conceptual Astronomy is an experience-based program which teaches fundamental principles of astronomy through observation, experiment, and interactive activities. All the activities are teacher-tested and assume no particular training in astronomy for the teacher or for the student. In this program, you and your students will take an exciting journey from earth, to the moon, the sun, the planets, and finally the stars in an ever-widening path of discovery. This guide is the answer to the question of how to design hands-on activities around the content which involves measurement, experimental design, and mathematics using the experiences of students as the basis for learning. Instructors are presented with a variety of methods to give students these experiences including direct observation, modeling, and computer simulation. The author, Jeff Adkins, is a practicing high school teacher and the Director of the Espace Academy (http://www.espaceacademy.com) sponsored in part by a grant from the California Department of Education’s Specialized Secondary Program.
