Spring 2007

Welcome to the Spring 2007 edition of Astronomy 110: Introduction to the Solar System. The labs for the course will be taught by Froney Crawford (the main lecture component of the course will be taught by Beth Praton). Many of the lab details can be found in the lab manual.

For the lab, you will need the following items:

Our lab will meet every Thursday night from 7:30 - 9:20 p.m., usually in Hackman 425. However, we will sometimes meet elsewhere (depending on the lab). I will let you know in advance (probably by email) which lab we will be doing in a given week and where we will meet. I'll have more to say to you in person about what needs to be turned in and graded and when it is due.

Note that for the 12 labs scheduled, only your best 11 scores will be counted (that is, your lowest lab score will be dropped at the end of the semester). However, any labs missed beyond this one will have significant penalties attached: your lab grade will drop one full letter grade for each missed lab.

Froney's contact information is:

Come see me anytime.

Note: For the first lab of the semester (on Thu Jan 18), we will meet in the North Museum Planetarium at 7:30 p.m. I'll be there to let you in the back door at 7:30 (don't be late!). I will hand out the lab (Constellations) at the first class meeting on Wed to give you some time to prepare.
