Astro-11 Fall 1998 Computer and Web Labs

Last update: 5 March 1999

You will be expected to carry out a total of four of the computer or Web "labs" listed below during the remainder of the semester. These are due on the last day of class, 22 April 1999.

The CLEA computer labs are available at download directly from the CLEA website! Follow the instructions in the lab guides provided on the links below.

The web labs can be carried out entirely using the internet. You should print out the worksheet so you can fill in the answers and hand it in. If you have questions or problems with this, or suggestions for improvements, please e-mail me.

You should hand these in to me during class, or at my office (just like the regular observing and homework).
