Syllabus: Fall 2011 Astronomy 101.002 (Call No. 14181) Course Description: Astronomy is considered to be the oldest of the sciences. Before mankind even understood what caused the seasons we knew that there was a repeatable pattern. Observation, recorded history, and trusting that what had happened before would happen again allowed mankind to settle in one place. You will learn about the Universe and thus know that events are not only repeatable but predictable as well. While Astronomy is a very old science we continue to add to our knowledge base every day. I hope to introduce current topics every week so that you can see just how dynamic it is. You will learn about the tools and theories that are used to expand our knowledge of the universe. Science is not just a huge compilation of facts but a way of thinking and acting. Instructor: William Miller; wmiller@unm.edu; 277-1506; web page www.unm.edu/~wmiller Class Time: Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:00 – 5:15 pm Class Location: 103 Regener Hall Course Text: Astronomy: A Beginner's Guide to the Universe
