Asterion and Chara--The Confusion of the Chase
Bernholz, Charles D.; Lyons, Michael J.
Physics Education, v37 n4 p289-295 Jul 2002
The study of astronomy, as an important part of any science education programme, provides our students with insights into more than just the cosmos. It may also serve as a mechanism to link them to other natural and social sciences. This article examines equally valid interpretations of the constellation Canes Venatici as an example of how the study of astronomy may serve this multidisciplinary educational role. In addition, it is an extension of the thoughts of Stannard (2001) on communicating physics through story. (Contains 4 figures and 13 footnotes.)
