New lab exercises are presented, continuing a series developed over the past few years (see Caton and Pollock, BAAS 18 No. 4, 22 Nos. 1 and 4, and 23 No.4, and 24 No. 4), including a PC-based spectral classification exercise that displays spectra on a VGA screen, and a simple PC-based eclipsing binary light curve simulation program.
Information packets will be available, including software, lab exercises, and instructor's notes. These will be on paper and on (PC) disk, in ASCII and WordPerfect formats, including some figures in AutoDesk's Generic CADD form. This will allow other institutions to modify the exercises to fit their own equipment and procedures.
Information will also be provided on accessing a PC that we have installed on the Internet to allow acquisition of future updates and additional materials that will be developed.
