Unit 10 - Stars and Our Universe

In Unit #10, students will learn how stars are classified by their temperature and luminosity. They will also learn about the life cycle of low to medium mass stars compared to high mass stars.  

Students will be given a short quiz each Friday to assess how well they have learned that week's materials.  It allows me to see if the class is ready to move on.  There will be a larger assessment at the end of each unit.  The students will be given a study guide to help prepare for the unit tests.

Please click on the "calendar" link on the left to see the daily agenda in my class.  You can also click on the "Useful Links" tab to find folders.  The folders are labeled by unit and will contain all files that I have used in that unit.  If your student has lost an assignment, you should be able to find it in the unit folder.  Finally, you will find a PDF file of the textbook in this folder.
