Both topic responses and interaction with other students are due on the dates shown above in the Schedule of Due Dates. There are many resources available on-line that you may also use to assist you with your preparation for a discussion topic. Just search the web using key terms of a given discussion topic. Homework Assignments Quizzes Homework assignments are based on topics discussed in the textbook assigned readings and may require some additional research. One assignment of 5 or 6 short answer questions will be made each week. Assignments will be available on Mondays and are due on Sunday of the same week. The only exception is for Week 8, which must be submitted by Saturday midnight, the last day of the course. The homework assignment sheets are Microsoft WORD documents that you will download to your computer from the Content area of the course. Next, you will enter your answers into that same document, and then post the completed assignment to the appropriate D2L Dropbox for that week. Answers are expected to be in your own words rather than quotes; grade may be reduced if extensive quotes are used. ed homework will not be accepted. More information regarding homework assignments is available in the FAQ document found in the Content area of the course. Assignments must be submitted in a format that is recognized by Microsoft Word, such as.doc,.docx, or.rtf. Only documents that can be opened by Microsoft Word will be accepted. With the exception of Quiz 1, quizzes will be made available by 12:01 A.M. CT on Thursday of the week in which they are to be completed (weeks 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7). Quizzes are accessed by clicking Quizzes on the navigation bar in D2L. They must be submitted by midnight CT on the following Sunday. Quizzes are intended to be closed book/closed notes. To enforce this intention, a strict time limit of 15 minutes will be enforced. It is recommended that you do your reading assignment and your homework prior to starting the quiz. Once you begin the quiz you must finish it. Should you lose your communication link, you must log back on immediately and still finish the quiz within the allotted 15 minutes. If you have done your readings and homework you should have no trouble completing 9 multiple choice questions within the time limit, even if you must log back on. The intent is that you will not have time to look up answers. Quiz 1, over the course rules presented in the syllabus and Welcome Letter, has a longer

5 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 5 time period and allows one re-try so you will better understand the course rules and policies. Late quiz submissions receive no credit, so be sure to submit quizzes by the deadline. Midterm and Final Exams A midterm exam is given in week 4 of the course. A comprehensive final exam must be taken during the last week of the course. The midterm exam will become available at 12:01 AM on Wednesday of the week 4 and must be completed by midnight Saturday of that same week. You will be given one hour to take this exam which is not proctored. The final exam will become available at 12:01 AM on Tuesday of week 8 and must be completed by Saturday midnight CT. You must take the final exam in the presence of the proctor approved by your instructor. The final exam is password protected and the password is available only to your approved proctor. Exams are closed book/closed notes. You will be given one and one-half hours to complete the final exam. Both exams are predominately multiple choice or true/false with a few short answer questions. More information regarding exams is available in the FAQ document. Please see the Proctor Policy section of this document for a description of your obligation concerning proctor selection, notification, and scheduling. Although ProctorU and any Columbia College campus testing center will always be approved, you must notify the instructor as to which of these you will use and then take the exam only with that proctor. Failure to notify the instructor as to which proctor you will use or taking the exam with a proctor other than the one you disclosed to your instructor may result in a grade of zero being given for the exam.

Course Schedule Week 1 Discovering the Night Sky; Gravitation and the Motion of the Planets Reading Assignment: Chapters 1 & 2 Discussion 1: Introduce yourself to your classmates. Please give more than your name. Include your profession, hobbies, interest in astronomy, and any other information that can help us get to know you. Discussion 2: Galileo was the first scientist to use the telescope to study the nighttime sky. Among his discoveries were the phases of Venus and the four major satellites of Jupiter. Describe the specifics of what Galileo saw that supported the heliocentric theory and refuted the geocentric theory. Given the views he put forward, do you believe he was treated fairly by society? Homework Assignment 1: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters 1 and 2. Quiz 1covers information available in the syllabus and Welcome Letter. There is a special time limit for this quiz only! Week 2 Light & Telescopes, Electromagnetic Radiation & Spectra, and Formation of the Solar System Reading Assignment: Chapters 3-5 Discussion 3: Our solar system was created from a cloud of dust and gas called the solar nebula. Describe the processes that took place according to this Solar Nebula theory and specifically how it came to be that we have planets orbiting around a star and why this orbital motion is all in the same

6 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 6 plane and in the same direction. Also explain why, according to this theory, the terrestrial and the Jovian planets are so different in size and chemical composition. Discussion 4: Describe what is meant by the term exoplanet. There are four common methods used to discover exoplanets; name each method and describe how each allows us to determine the existence these objects. Homework Assignment 2: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters 3-5. Proctor Information: Proctor information form must be submitted for approval by end of week 2. Quiz 2: Covers Ch Week 3 The Earth, the Moon, and Other Terrestrial Planets Reading Assignment: Chapters 6-7 Discussion 5: We have been reflecting laser beams off the Moon since the early 1970s using reflectors left there by Apollo astronauts. From these experiments we have learned that the Moon is moving away from the Earth at a rate of 3.8 cm per year. Discuss the specifics of the process that is causing this to occur including detail on how the Moon is getting the energy to recede. What is the likely end result for the Earth/Moon system and what do you think the impact on humanity might be. Discussion 6: Several planets in our solar system have global magnetic fields. Describe how this global magnetic field/magnetosphere is created for both the terrestrial type planets and for the Jovian planets. What is a general statement of the process that applies to both? What do you see as the impact to Earth if we should lose our magnetosphere? Homework Assignment 3: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters 6 and 7. Quiz 3: Covers Ch Week 4 Outer Planets and other Solar System Objects Reading Assignment: Chapters 8-9 Discussion 7: There has been a scientific debate raging for many years over the classification of Pluto. Pluto recently lost its status as a planet. Do you feel it should be classified as a dwarf planet, a planet. Or is it just a large version of a captured comet or KBO? State your opinion on this issue and the scientific rationale for your position. Discussion 8: Meteors often appear in "showers" that occur at the same time each year. During these showers the rate of occurrence is many times higher than the random events we see at other times of the year. Discuss the cause of these annual predictable events. Also discuss the difference between a meteoroid, meteor and a meteorite. Should we worry about being struck by any of these shower objects? Homework Assignment 4: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters 8 & 9. Midterm Exam: Exam over chapters 1-9. Sixty minute time limit is strictly enforced. Week 5 The Sun, Characterizing Stars, & Stars from Birth through Middle Age Reading Assignment: Chapters Discussion 9: Discuss the primary regions or zones within the Sun and what occurs in them, how and where energy is created in the Sun, and the Sun s chemical composition. Discussion 10: Parallax is used as a tool to determine distances to stars. Describe how this stellar

7 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 7 parallax works. Also discuss what limits the effective range of the technique and the maximum distance that can be accurately measured. Parallax is not unique to astronomy. Provide some specific examples of non-astronomy applications. Homework Assignment 5: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters Quiz 4: Covers Ch Week 6 The Death of Stars; Black Holes Reading Assignment: Chapters Discussion 11: The larger the mass of a star, the higher the internal pressure caused by gravity. Higher internal pressure causes higher temperatures and it is temperature that determines the types of fusion that can occur deep in a stars interior. Discuss all of the types of fusion that can occur in a star, the temperatures at which they occur, and the mass (not density) required to produce them. Discussion 12: Discuss the cause of Black Holes and their major components/features. Make sure you address the event horizon and the singularity along with other major properties. Does the concept of a Black seem reasonable to you? Why or why not? Homework Assignment 6: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters13 & 14. Quiz 5: Covers Ch Proctor Information for Final Exam: Confirm that your proctor request form has been reviewed and feedback provided regarding acceptance or rejection of your proctor request. Course Evaluations: Please evaluate the course. You will be able to submit your course evaluation between Sunday of Week 5 and Thursday of Week 7. A link will be sent to your CougarMail that will allow you to access the evaluation. Week 7 The Milky Way, Galaxies; Quasars and other Active Galaxies Reading Assignment: Chapters Discussion 13: "You can't see the forest for the trees" might seem an appropriate analogy for astronomers attempting to determine the shape of the Milky Way galaxy when we are in fact located inside the galaxy. Discuss techniques used by astronomers (including how each technique aids in mapping), both today and in the past, to determine the type of galaxy in which we live, why it is so difficult to determine the shape of our galaxy, and where our Sun is located in the galaxy? Discussion 14: Describe at least four of the most commonly used techniques used to determine distances to stars and galaxies. For each method, make sure you include what is actually measured and how these measurements allow the calculation of distance. Also indicate the distance over which valid measurements can be made for each method. Homework Assignment 7: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Chapters Quiz 6: Covers Ch Week 8 Cosmology; the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Reading Assignment: Chapters Discussion Assignment Discussion 15: Many astronomers have spent their entire careers trying to definitively answer the question "are we alone in the universe." Discuss the type of efforts made to date to find extraterrestrial intelligence. Is there a possibility we might still find life in our solar system and if so

8 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 8 where? Aside from the scientific evidence, what are your views regarding life beyond Earth? Homework Assignment 8: Assigned in D2L based on topics discussed in Ch.18 & 19. Final Examination: This is a proctored exam covering all of the material discussed in the course.
