Astronomy 1001 End of Term Notes

As a reminder from the course syllabus:

1) You need a C- or better to receive a passing grade if you’re registered for the course Pass/Fail (S/N).

2) You must earn at least 50% of the lab points (120/240) and 50% of the observational project points (70/140) in order to pass the course.


Each instructor decides their own grading curve.
