ASTR 205 will show the student our natural world on a cosmic scale. The universe may be seen better and understood through scientific methods which are described and viewed.
This course is based upon the text Moons & Planets by William K. Hartmann (5th edition). It is an intermediate-level astronomy course, meant to be taken after ASTR 210, and is for students who want to study planetary astronomy in a deeper way. Unlike ASTR 210, which covers a wide range of topics in astronomy, ASTR 310 is more focused, concentrating on the planets and smaller bodies found in our own "solar neighbourhood," the Solar System. Students who have not completed ASTR 210, but who have a strong mathematical background (including calculus), may also take the course.
