Cosmology

Natural Science specialization with deeper studies in physics

Cosmology is the teaching of building, origin and development of the universe on a wider scale. We look at astronomical observations and physics theories that have led to the image we have of the universe, our cosmos.

We approach concepts like red displacement, the expansion of the universe, the hubble constellation, gravitation theory, the cosmological principle, cosmic background radiation, matter, antimatter, galaxy formation, dark matter, dark energy, inflation.

The teaching is based on the book Big Bang by Simon Singh, supplemented with other popular science texts, lectures, research visits and films, as well as absorbing ourselves with factual texts in selected areas.

Teaching is in English and Swedish. Texts used can also be in both Swedish and English.

Your Gymnasium Diploma Project can be linked to Cosmology, but also more generally to Physics or Mathematics.
