Astronomy free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Astronomy

This module covers basic astronomy with a modern observational approach. It encompasses two broad themes of 'Stars and Galaxies' and 'Multiwavelength Astronomy'. Starting from cosmic length scales, learn how astronomers measure the Universe ? through spectroscopy, imaging and time-variability. You'll learn about the constituents of stars and galaxies, and study their formation, evolution and rebirth through energetic processes. To finish, revisit the Universe from the perspective of cosmic time scales. Throughout, alongside astronomy, you'll develop your computing, maths and physics skills.

Science, Maths & Technology 

The relativistic Universe

If you are interested in using quantitative physical methods to understand relativistic and high-energy processes in the Universe, and already have a good background in OU level 2 maths, physics and astronomy, then this is the module for you. This module comprises three parts that present, in turn, the theoretical basis for modern cosmology, described by Einstein's special and general theories of relativity; cosmological observations of the local and distant Universe that are used to understand its structure and evolution; and high-energy phenomena in the Universe including interacting binary stars, active galactic nuclei and gamma-ray bursts.

Science, Maths & Technology 

Mathematics for science and technology

Maths is intimately entwined with science and technology, whether it is used to analyse data collected on plants in the Amazon rainforest, to calculate the trajectory of a comet or design a bridge to connect two countries. This means that science and technology go hand-in-hand with maths, and that a firm grasp of maths is crucial for studying any science and technology discipline. This free course, Maths for science and technology, will help you build a stronger grip with the maths helping hand. You’ll learn about how the power of algebra, the sense of scientific notation, the beauty of basic trigonometry and why 70 db (decibels) is 10 times more powerful than 60 db. As well as this you will delve into scientific measurement, including the importance of units and the flexibility and practically of the SI – the internationally recognised system of units based on multiples of ten.
