Cosmic Catastrophes

Lawrence Rudnick, Department of Astronomy, University of Minnesota

This homepage for a freshman astronomy class provides a detailed syllabus and clearly defined learning goals for students, not only about astronomy and the universe, but about how we make choices, as individuals and communities, in the face of risks. The page also features links to lecture topic "enhancers" in the form of text and graphics that augment in-class learning.
