Day 90: Astronomy “Misconceptions” and Jay Leno

Screen shot 2014-01-16 at 9.11.17 AM

First day of the new semester = the first day with my new class of astronomy students. Nice for them and for me to have a fresh start halfway through the year. After introductions, seat assignments, attendance, book distribution (and reading assignment), and Edmodo instructions, the students take a quick paper and pencil “quiz” on some astronomy basics. The same questions are those asked in the classic Jay Leno video that I finally found online! We all have a good laugh. Nice way to break the ice and have some fun.
