Description:

The Nebraska Astronomy Applet Project has developed a series of online Introductory Level Astronomy modules that use high-quality simulations to introduce students to important astronomical and astrophysical phenomena. Current modules address the solar system, Earth's seasons, the horizon coordinate system and rotation of the night sky, and the motions of the sun. There are also simulators that demonstrate planetary orbits, the phases of the moon, eclipsing binary stars, and other topics. Each module includes pre- and post-tests, a student guide, and teacher's resources such as pedagogical objectives, a demonstration guide, and assessment materials.
