Edward E. Tim P. Slater, University of Wyoming. Jeff P. Adams, Pennsylvania State University. Gina Brissenden, University of Arizona. Nine new activities ensure the most common topics of introductory astronomy are covered. Lecture-Tutorials now total 38 and compliment the instructor’s curriculum with activities on the Doppler Shift, Extrasolar Planets, Kepler’s 2nd Law, and Seasons. All the activities have been improved with special attention in terms of the wording of questions and the scenarios presented.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, Lecture-Tutorials for Introductory Astronomy is designed to help make large lecture-format courses more interactive with easy-to-implement student activities that can be integrated into existing course structures. The Second Edition of the Lecture-Tutorials for Introductory Astronomy contains nine new activities that focus on planetary science, system related topics, and the interactions of Light and matter. These new activities have been created using the same rigorousclass-test development process that was used for the highly successful first edition. Each of the 38 Lecture-Tutorials, presented in a classroom-ready format, challenges students with a series of carefully designed questions that spark classroom discussion, engage students in critical reasoning, and require no equipment.

The Night Sky: Position, Motion, Seasonal Stars, Solar vs. Sidereal Day, Ecliptic, Star Charts.Fundamentals of Astronomy: Kepler’s 2nd Law, Kepler’s 3rd Law, Newton’s Laws and Gravity, Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes of Stars, The Parse, Parallax and Distance, Spectroscopic Parallax. Nature of Light in Astronomy: The Electromagnetic (EM) Spectrum of Light, Telescopes and Earth’s Atmosphere, Luminosity, Temperature and Size, Blackbody Radiation, Types of Spectra, Light and Atoms, Analyzing Spectra, Doppler Shift.Our Solar System: The Cause of Moon Phases, Predicting Moon Phases, Path of Sun, Seasons, Observing Retrograde Motion, Earth’s Changing Surface, Temperature and Formation of Our Solar System, Sun Size.Stars Galaxies and Beyond: H-R Diagram, Star Formation and Lifetimes, Binary Stars, The Motion of Extrasolar Planets, Stellar Evolution, Milky Way Scales, Galaxy Classification, Looking at Distant Objects, Expansion of the Universe. For all readers interested in astronomy.

  • EDIT: The review below still stands. But the quality of paper is really annoying. For such an expensive workbook, it's disappointing to have to write on cheap magazine-style paper. If it had luxurious paper it would be wonderful. As it is, holding it feels cheap, and it gets worse over time.

    When my professor told me I had to spend forty bucks on a workbook, I was really annoyed. What was this, middle school? Clearly another degenerate symptom of college, catering to the industry rather than actual learning!

    However, to my surprise, the workbook is phenomenal. I know that's probably hard to believe. But you'll actually go through it and make all sorts of cool realizations and walk away with an incredible sense of basic scientific literacy that feels good to know.

    The method of student exploration through well-sequenced questions works incredibly well here. We used it without the textbook, and you can still plow through it. (Sometimes with Google.)

    I'm not promising you'll love it. But don't dismiss it just because it's a workbook. You might find it's pretty effective!

  • It's been a long coming, but it's finally here! Astronomy instructors and authors have produced a wonderfully readable and thoroughly comprehensible introduction to the science of astronomy. Each topic in this book really is a mini-tutorial as proclaimed by the cover title. The book format is actually written in a laboratory worksheet fashion (the sheets can be detached from the book along their perforated edges) with each worksheet dedicated to a specific astronomy concept (e.g., position, motion, Keplar's Third Law, etc.). One pass through this ingeniously designed "book of tutorials" and the beginner to the wonderful world of the cosmo is truly ready to move on to more advanced astronomy books and/or astronomy courses. My congratulations (and gratitude) to the Pearson Addison-Wesley Publishing Company for making the concept of learning enjoyable once again.

    If you are at all interested in astronomy, but recoiled away from the subject after opening a typical "introductory" college textbook, then you would do yourself a tremendous favor by purchasing this book. You won't be disappointed!

  • Someone had filled out every page of this workbook in pen. I spent the entire semester having to scan and edit out another person's handwriting so I could complete my homework by myself. This book was essentially useless and a headache.

  • Standard textbook, if you're taking AST101, be prepared for it to be much more challenging than anticipated! This is legit science, complete with thermodynamics and dare I say, MATHHHHHHHaghhhhhh

  • Several errors. Questions in general are suitable for a high school month-long unit maybe, not a college course.

  • As described.

  • Some of these questions are hard but it helps me learn in my class and I am glad that this is required for class

  • The book was perfect just took a while to come
