All written assignments (reports, homework, projects) must be in computer generated text - NO handwritten papers.
Some of the assignments will involve problem-solving and math.
You may be interested to visit our
on the roof of Painter Hall. This houses a 9 inch refracting telescope. The general student night is Fridays
at 7:00 - 8:00 PM, clear nights only. This is a simple telescope to use and students (you!) can be checked
out to observe with it. Please see me for further information. You may also look at the
Painter Hall Telescope Handbook,
which explains the check-out procedure and the use of the telescope. You can also consult the
Educational Services Office,
RLM 13.122, 471-1307. There are also Star Parties every Wednesday evening on the roof of RLM using
the 16-inch telescope.
