Astronomy: the solar system and beyond
ASTRONOMY: THE SOLAR SYSTEM AND BEYOND and its accompanying learning tools ThomsonNOW and Virtual Astronomy Labs shows you your place in the universe, not just your location, but also your role as a planet dweller in an evolving universe. You will learn to focus on the scientific method through the strong central questioning themes of "What are we?" and "How do we know?" Rather than memorize facts, you will be empowered to create your own understanding of your place in the cosmos. Use ThomsonNOW to not only enhance your conceptual understanding of the content, but to improve your grade in the course.
