The University of Nebraska at Lincoln has one of the internet's best websites promoting active learning in the field of introductory astronomy. This resource is intended to be used in parallel with UNL's efforts. Contributions may include:

  • Wikiquizzes (see below)
  • Space for student essays relevant to these labs
  • Classroom activities relevant to one or more UNL activities

Draft of first wikiquiz[edit]

  • I place the first wikiquiz here to help sort out copyvio issues. I think this quiz differs sufficiently from the UNL page. And, this quiz will link to the UNL page.
  • This quiz is based on Stellar Properties #2: HR Diagram #1 Only one questions would be selected for a classroom quiz.
  • This is a stub that students will complete, perhaps under the username user:Guy vandegrift's student

At the next Astronomy class meeting, students will copy this "stub" to a subpage of user:Guy vandegrift's student and add questions. All will be variations of this question, all pertaining to UNL's Stellar Properties #2: HR Diagram #1'
