Course content will be addressed in the lectures in class, readings and quizes from the text book, concept test questions, project assignments, and exams. Attendance to the lectures is the single most important way to ensure success in this course. There will be ample opportunity for individual exploration and interaction -- just as there is in scientific research. You are encouraged to ask questions in class and during office hours; to visit the Teaching Observatory; and, in general, to let only your imagination be the limit.

If you have a documented disability and anticipate needing accommodations in this course, please see me as soon as possible. And please request that the Counselor for Students with Disabilities send a letter verifying your disability.
