Measurements of the cosmos based on a wide variety of methods are in good agreement on the contents and history of the universe. We focus on observations that are aimed at quantifying and understanding the universe when it was less than a billionth of a billionth of a second old to test specific models of how the universe was born. We review the framework in which to think about cosmological observations with an emphasis on results from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP).
