Trusting in the providence of our God, Exploring Creation with High School Astronomy uses the scientific and mathematical constants of the universe to reveal the beauty of creation. Experiencing God’s signature, in all of its majesty, brings us closer to our Creator and inspires us to strive for greater things.
Astronomy is the perfect complement to Physics study where the mathematical levels are similar. Because there are no tests, however, any high school student would benefit from this elective course. The curriculum consists of the written text and questions that students answer “On Your Own.” This allows students to check their comprehension levels before moving on. While some questions are mathematical in nature, students who do not have the mathematical skill can skip them and still gain full insight into the universe and their unique place within it.
