Conceptual Astronomy


A high school/college level astronomy workbook for activity and lab based courses.  This course includes everything from puzzles to sophisticated lab modeling projects and everything in between.  Learn how to build a sundial and stonehenge, track Jupiter’s moons, measure the age of a star cluster, find the Hubble Constant and the age of the universe, and much more.  Based on 30 years experience as an educator, Conceptual Astronomy will help you and your students reach for the stars.
