    astronomy is the best kind of science! it's not that hard. but you have to know about 3 different types of galaxies: irregular, elliptical, and spiral. of course we live in the milky way, so its a spiral galaxy. =) also know about meteors, meteorites, and meteoroids. they are NOT the same!! astronomy is interesting. you'll learn about:

    constellations

    moons

    the 9 planets and their features

    the big bang theory

    telescopes

    supernovas

    nebulas

    comets

    asteroids

    the sun

    I dont know about you but i had ALOT of homework. sometimes, she gave us so much, i didnt bother even doin it =)

    darling, maximum colleges do no longer practice those matters in eighth grade. Im fairly optimistic those are college classes. We dont initiate algebra till finally eighth, and freshman twelve months we do geo and then it relies upon on how sturdy we are at math if we willl be waiting to take calculus.

    It's not that hard if you have a good memory, as you need to memorize the names of stars, formation of common constellations and where to find them and how to read star charts. You also need to be good in math to calculate distances of stars and convert from light-years into other measurements.
