Instructors can select from 40 labs (at a cost of $2.50 per lab to the bookstore, for a typical cost of $25 per semester) covering topics from quantitative reasoning, Earth’s perspective, tools for astronomical observations, Solar System & exoplanets, stars, galaxies, and cosmology. The labs are primarily designed for use in general education courses for non-science majors and require only high school algebra. Students are led through investigations of a concept by a series of questions and are given the opportunity to examine, interact, and experiment with phenomena that are integral to astronomy while developing scientific process skills. The labs use a conversational, Socratic approach and emphasize simple, inexpensive equipment.
