Pathways to Astronomy
Publication Date 27 Jan 2017
OverviewPathways to Astronomy breaks down introductory astronomy into its component parts. The huge and fascinating field of astronomy is divided into 86 units. These units are woven together to flow naturally for the person who wants to read the text like a book but it is also possible to assign them in different orders or skip certain units altogether. Professors can customize the units to fit their course needs. They can select individual units for exploration in lecture while assigning easier units for self-study or they can cover all the units in full depth in a content-rich course. With the short length of units students can easily digest the material covered in an individual unit before moving onto the next unit.
