Wow, where has the semester gone? Can you believe you are half way through the year?! I would like you to reflect on what we have learned this semester, what activities and labs we did and how those things have changed how you think about the world around you now.
For your post this week tell us what you have enjoyed the most, why you enjoyed it and what you learned from it. Don't be stingy with your explanations this week. I want you to really reflect on the why and what parts. Remember you could earn extra points here.
Your comments will be different this week as well. One of your comments will be a question that you ask the person about what they posted. Please choose a person that has not had a question asked and don't ask silly questions. Pick someones post that you are truly interested in learning more about what they said!
Your second comment will be answering your classmates question.
This week your first post is due Tuesday, your question comment by Thursday and your answer by Sunday.
I want to survey you this week about your interest in my other class, Astronomy and Aerospace Engineering. This course offers 2 University of Washington credit courses worth 10 credits in Astronomy as well as an engineering component where students build and test different models in 3 different challenges and a design idea conceptual challenge. You have to be a junior or senior to take the course.
We've covered a variety of astronomical topics this past semester and will cover a couple more next semester so my questions this week is simple and should be easy to answer. Based on the basic things you have learned so far and your interest level in the type of course I described above...
If you have the chance to take the full year Astronomy course either in your junior or senior year, would you? Why or why not?
Remember to get in your answer by Wednesday of this week and your 2 comments by Sunday. :)
