Synopsis: Sparked by the latest developments in astronomy education research, Investigating Astronomy focuses on conceptual understanding, visual literacy, and inquiry-based learning. Tim Slater and Roger Freedman’s concise (15 chapter) text explores core topics to show how astronomers study and decipher the universe’s underlying processes, helping students approach the subject from a professional scientist’s perspective.

He has published research in nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, and laser physics. In recent years, he has helped to develop computer-based tools for learning introductory physics and astronomy and helped pioneer the use of classroom response systems and the "flipped" classroom model at UCSB. He is co-author of three introductory textbooks: University Physics (Pearson), Universe (Freeman), and Investigating Astronomy (Freeman).
