Basic Mathematics for Astronomy (PDF 34P)

Basic Mathematics for Astronomy (PDF 34P)

Each section in this manual begins with a description of each set of skills. You should read these descriptions and if you fully understand the concepts, try some of the sample problems. If you score well, move on to the next section. However, if you find that you do need to rethink these concepts, then study the description carefully and do all of the exercises section. The questions in the exercises section go more in depth than multiple choice exam questions will, but doing them will help you think through and master the concepts. Answers for all of the exercise questions are provided in the last section. Only use these answers after you are done with the exercise questions (looking at the answers ahead of time will not help you learn). Finally, the last part of each section is example exam questions. These are the types of questions you can expect to find on multiple choice exams related to these skills.
