AST 1022L Astronomy Laboratory Fall 2011 Section 0463/0464 : Monday: 10:40 – 12:35/12:50 – 2:45 Instructor: Megan Shabram 319 Bryant Space Science Center mshabram@astro.ufl.edu (352) 294-1857 Office hours: Tues. 10:00-11:00, Thurs. 10:00-11:00 Teaching Lab Director: Dr. Francisco Reyes 12 Bryant Space Science Center reyes@astro.ufl.edu (352) 392-2052 ext. 229 Course Website: http://www.astro.ufl.edu/~mshabram/ast1022.html Locations: Class will be held in the Bryant Space Science Center room 7 (Basement). Additionally, there will be 3 mandatory night labs held at the Campus Teaching Observatory (CTO). The dates and times for the night labs will be announced within the first couple weeks of class. CTO is located on the UF campus, south of the Reitz Union parking lot and west of the Aerospace Engineering building, off Museum Road (See map). We'll be there after dark, so it is a good idea to use the buddy system for your safety when you arrive and when you leave. If you have trouble finding it, you can reach me directly at the observatory starting 30 minutes before the lab at (352) 392-1016. You might want to find it in the daytime before the first lab to be sure, absence due to not being able to find CTO will not be excused. A map indicating the location of CTO can be found on the last page of this syllabus. The night labs are subject to the weather conditions. If the night session needs to be cancelled I will send an e-mail message around 6 PM to cancel the lab. If you don't receive a cancellation message you should show up at the CTO at the scheduled time, unless there is bad weather, thunderstorm, or tornado watch or warning. Course Objectives and Goals: “AST-1022L Astronomy Laboratory counts for one (1) credit of Physical Science (P) towards the General Education requirement.
