The Complete Astronomy Course Solution!

Bundle In Quest of the Universe, Seventh Edition with the new Astronomy Activity and Laboratory Manual, Second Edition for a complete and affordable hands-on-learning astronomy course solution.

Astronomy Activity and Laboratory Manual provides a cost effective way to introduce active learning into any introductory astronomy course. The activities within this lab manual require no specialized equipment or individual materials beyond a pencil, straightedge, and common calculator, making it easy to integrate into any course of any size, whether in the classroom or online.

No two astronomy courses are alike, and every instructor has a particular teaching style and approach to topic organization. That’s why each activity within Astronomy Activity and Laboratory Manual is self-contained, allowing instructors to customize the selection of activities for their unique course.

Take your students on an exciting journey through the universe with the compelling narrative of the Astronomy Activity and Laboratory Manual and the fact-based approach of the core textbook.
