This series of lectures is intended to provide an introductory, non-rigorous overview of those aspects of the standard, hot big bang cosmology useful for understanding and appreciating the astroparticle physics-cosmology connection. Following a minimal introduction to the cosmography and dynamics of the Universe, the basic physics underlying the early evolution of the Universe is outlined. The intent of these lectures is pedagogical and no claim of originality is made. If these lectures are succssful, the previously unitiated might be prepared to proceed from here to an understanding of current literature on the particle physics-cosmology connection.
