You cannot have physics without math. You cannot have astronomy without physics. You cannot have life without all three but some people try to deny that fact. Take a peek behind the celebrity and mystique of these disciplines--you do not have to be Neil deGrasse Tyson to connect with their practitioners. Put aside your preconceptions about the difficulty of math beyond balancing your checking account; ignore that part of your brain that cannot wrap itself around the vastness of billions and billions of stars surrounding our “Pale Blue Dot;” and see that you can provide helpful reference to even the most Einstein-esque scientist.

Program Takeaways

  • Consider that physics, astronomy, and math are not as unapproachable as you think.

  • Learn how physicists, astronomers, and mathematicians view and use libraries.

  • Gain resources to help you provide good reference to these disciplines.
