Role-Playing and Problem-Based Exercises for Teaching Undergraduate Astronomy

This page provides information about, and copies of the role-playing exercises and problem-based learning exercises I use in my undergraduate Astronomy classes.

You are very welcome to use, copy and modify these exercises. I only ask that you cite me as the source, and that you let me know that you are using them, and how the exercises went.

These exercises have now been used successfully with over 10,000 students at more that thirty universities and schools around the world.
