At Simulation Curriculum Corp. we have twenty years' experience developing interactive astronomy content and we are delighted to bring you this rich, beautiful, enhanced astronomy workbook. We think it's a great new way to explore this exciting subject.
You can use this workbook as an ideal companion to our award-winning Starry Night High School curriculum, which you may have installed on your computer, reinforcing core concepts learned in the classroom. This workbook can also be used as a supplemental resource with most other introductory astronomy textbooks, or even all by itself, making it easier to grasp important concepts of astronomy.
You will learn about the effect of both the Earth's rotation on its axis and the revolution of the Earth around the Sun. You will be introduced to coordinate systems used to record the positions of objects in the sky and to the systems of time used in astronomy. You will explore the appearance of the Moon and its role in both solar and lunar eclipses.
