Physics 120: Astronomy: From the Earth to the Cosmos Spring 2021 Catalog description: ---------An introduction to the universe, from the Earth to the most distant galaxies. Main topics include stars, galaxies, and cosmology, in addition to foundational topics such as gravitation, light, and matter. Primarily for non-science majors. Concurrent lab enrollment required. 4.000 Credit hours Core B2 Natural or Lab Sci, Tuition (Sciences) ---------- Astronomy is the oldest science. Through millennia we have watched the skies, imagined what lies beyond them, charted and experimented, and now recently begun exploring them. Peoples the world over, separated through time and distance, have looked to the same sky, and built their own understanding, record, and stories of what lies above. Because of this, Astronomy has become a fascinating field that synthesises not only science, but history, culture, belief, and philosophy, into an awe-inspiring whole. That whole contains literally everything; the entire universe, so we’re going to tackle as much as we can manage in the time that we have. Expect to learn some mind blowing things about nature, gain a deeper insight into the celestial origins of our experiences here on Earth, and with any luck, be a bit humbled by a new sense of perspective. Student Learning Outcomes After successfully completing this course, students will be able to: ● Demonstrate understanding of and literacy in the content and principles of astronomy. ● Perform laboratory procedures that explore the content and principles of astronomy. ● Carry out scientific procedures in a socially responsible manner. ● Accurately observe, record, analyze, and report data collected in the laboratory. Put less rigidly: studying astronomy helps build concrete skills like data analysis and scientifically minded thinking, but also emphasizes the interconnectedness of many distinct and seemingly disparate parts of life, as well as ingrains a broad sense of scale and context for ourselves and our place in the cosmos! Live meeting - Zoom details Meeting times: M W F 9:15am - 10:05am PST After introductions and hellos, I’ll be recording each session and posting them on canvas. While it is possible to watch these recordings at a later date, please do attend our sessions when it’s possible! Much of the learning that happens in courses like these comes from dialog, and you’ll get a lot less value dialoguing with a recording. We have a fairly small class this semester so I hope we’ll be able to have good, fruitful discussion! Textbook Cosmic Perspective, 9th edition by Bennett (modified) Mastering Astronomy for online homework and lab work You’ve got a few options for purchasing these. The easiest would be to get a digital code for mastering Astronomy, which comes with an electronic version of the text. If you’d like to buy a physical copy, keep in mind you *will* need a code for mastering Astronomy both for completing homework and some of our lab activities; some versions of the book will come bundled with the code, while others will be stand alone without it. Unfortunately most second-hand copies you’ll be able to find won’t have the code included. The following are some external resources I recommend. Crash course is great for exactly what it sounds like, though it moves at a very quick pace. PBS spacetime dives into more high level topics, but still tries to present them in an approachable way (good place to fish for project ideas!)

This stands in as a sort of attendance, checking to make sure you’re keeping engaged with class as we move through the semester. A short 2~3 sentence recap on what we discussed is all you’ll need here. Homework: 30% Most weeks you’ll need to complete homework questions investigating what we covered in the previous class sessions. These will be done using the Mastering Astronomy software. Comprehensive Homework: 15% At the end of the semester we’ll have 1 final, larger homework set that will cover questions ranging over the entire semester’s topics. This will include some more difficult extra credit questions if you’d like to take up the challenge~ Project 25% Proposal 5% First draft 10% Final draft 15% Listening to someone talk about astronomy is fine, but most real learning comes from your own investigation and interests. We’ll be creating a project during the semester to give you a chance to choose your own topic and dive into it. The topic and presentation style is completely up to you; it could be a written article, a video, an animation, a podcast, you could make up and run your own experiment, or you could build something! I’ll look over your proposal and give feedback to help guide it to be sure it lies in the bounds of astronomy (and will be interesting to research!), and I’ll similarly give feedback after your first draft. We’ll start talking more about the projects as we get about half way into the semester, so as we progress through class keep an eye out for subjects that you think you’d like to dive deeper into. You’re welcome to partner up with a classmate and do your project together too! Labs 20% You should be co-enrolled with Phys 120L, the astronomy lab. These labs provide a more hands-on opportunity to explore the concepts we’ll encounter in the lecture at greater depth, guided by your lab instructor. These labs will meet weekly with a few breaks sprinkled in. I’ll post the lab instructions for each week on our canvas page Be sure to be diligent in these labs; they account for a significant chunk of your grade! Your lab instructors will provide you with zoom links for your individual sessions. I’ll list the lab sections and the lab topics below: Lab Sections Phys120L-02 Mon 2:40 pm - 4:25 pm William J Golightly wjgolightly@usfca.edu Phys120L-03 Tues 9:55 am - 11:40 am Andrew Fittingoff ahfittingoff@usfca.edu Phys120L-04 Tues 12:45 pm - 2:30 pm Andrew Fittingoff ahfittingoff@usfca.edu Phys120L-01 Tues 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm Minhua Zhu mzhu7@usfca.edu Lab Schedule Week 1: 1/25-1/29 Orientation Meeting Week 2: 2/1-2/5 Lab 1 - Mathematics of the Cosmos Week 3: 2/8-2/12 Lab 2 - Sky Navigation Week 4: 2/15-2/19 Week 5: 2/22-2/26 Lab 3 - Force of the Cosmos Week 6: 3/1-3/5 Lab 4 - Light and Spectroscopy Week 7: 3/8-3/12 Lab 5 - Scales of the Cosmos Week 8: 3/15-3/19 Week 9: 3/22-3/26 Lab 6 - Stellar Spectra Week 10: 3/29-4/2 Lab 7 - Cosmic Evolution Week 11: 4/5-4/9 Lab 8 - X-ray Supernova Remnant Week 12: 4/12-4/16 Week 13: 4/19-4/23 Lab 9 - Origin of the Cosmos Week 14: 4/26-4/30 Lab 10 - Hubble's Law Week 15: 5/3-5/7 Grades Final grades will be based on the categories above, with ranges as follows: A: 90~100% B: 75~90% C: 60~75% D: 50~60% F: < 50% General USF Policies Students with Disabilities The University of San Francisco is committed to providing equal access to students with disabilities.
