[91.07] Binary Star Software for Teaching

C.H.S. Lacy (U. Arkansas)

Educational software for Macintosh computers to aid in teaching binary star concepts is now available free from my web site http://www.uark.edu/misc/clacy/BinaryStars/. Four programs are available to teach binary star concepts such as orbital period, orbital phase, eclipsing binary star, dates of minima, semi-major axis, eccentricity, longitude of periastron, orbital inclination, Keplerís laws, and observing seasons. These programs may be used in a teaching laboratory setting, or for personal use. Both student manuals and instructor manuals are provided.
