Astronomy 1G was a twenty credit pre-Honours course taught in second semester, intended for a broad range of physical sciences students. It was taught in alternate years, sandwiched with Astronomy 1S. A1S focused on stars and planets, and A1G on galaxies and cosmology. It was last taught in Spring 2012; Astronomy 1S was last taught in Spring 2013. For the 2013/14 academic we have restructured our pre-Honours astronomy teaching. There are two first year courses (Discovering Astronomy, and Astrobiology) and a new second year course, Introductory Astrophysics. This page is just a repository for the components of the course taught by me.
