Section Description

: This course is taught in a mostly non-mathematical format. It is designed primarily for non-science students to understand where astronomy has been and where it's headed. There will be some simple arithmetic on some test questions. Although little math background is necessary, an ability for logical reasoning is important. It's a big universe. We cover a great deal of material at a fast pace, and the course may be challenging for you. See the syllabus for a list of topics covered.
