Course Materials Under Revision for 2017-2018

Required and Optional Texts

For the 2017-2018 academic year,we will be using Universe, 10/e, William Kaufmann III,Roger A. Freedman (W. H. Freeman and Co.). . This is a college level introduction to astronomy intended for both science and non-science majors. It is supported by a "companion website" Freeman Astronomy, and we will be using this as a source for some quiz drill work. It is not possible to use any other edition for this course due to significant differences in text presentation and exercises.

You may order all texts through Scholars Online Bookstore. Be sure to order a version (I'm recommending ISBN #1429263768) containing the DVD.


Optional Resources

Starry Night Deluxe version planetarium program.

Voyager III Planetarium program (this is the one I use to make all my diagrams).
