Astronomy 98/198: Python for Astronomers

In Spring 2018, I taught Astronomy 98/198: Python for Astronomers along with Makena Fetzer and Orion Lyau. Astronomy 98/198 is intended to be an introduction to Python and does not demand any prerequisites or prior coding experience. Emphasis is placed on application in data analysis settings, particularly with astronomical data sets. Astronomy 98/198 is a two-unit class affiliated with Democratic Education at Cal (DeCal). You can find the syllabus here. Our faculty sponsor was Mariska Kriek.

Every class, we asked a silly question on the attendance form. You can find those questions, and some choice answers to those questions, here.
