Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It is a very fascinating course, and I would recommend to anyone curious as to how the universe came to be what it is. From the planets to black holes, it gives a very thorough introduction to Astronomy
The course starts with the basics, from the lunar phases and celestial sphere stuff, before heading into why the planets orbit the way they do, and which astronomers were responsible for this. It also goes through how stars produce their energy, how to navigate the stars in the sky, and how they die/form, as well as what happens to them after death.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to do maths. Whilst it isn't a physics or chemistry course, number crunching is involved.
