    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of my teachers and professors in both high school and college tend to be limited on topics in class. Causing me to lose interest in the topic that I was learning about because the class was not interesting to me. This class was different all of my life I either struggle or showed little to no interest in the science because it was never my strongest subjects. This class was different because the time management was perfect allowing us to discuss more than science. It was a very openly minded class where we discussed not only science about the world but politics, issues in the world, life as a college students and religious thoughts sometimes without anyone being judgmental. Professor Mazzaccaro made class a thrill everyday that you walked through his doors.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the world could possibly be in serious trouble in the future if we do not change the way we treat our environment and every year there is a new reason why. We may not know the actual reason for global warming but it is possible that nonrenewable energy may play a role in the problem and that is huge because that is the source of most of the energy that america uses. Many animals are becoming endangered every day because of human beings destroying their natural habitats and it gets brushed off as if it was just a joke. The rate that the population is increasing is a huge problem because we may run out of resources to provide for everyone. These are situations that I believe are not taken seriously and humans as a whole should take act on it to make the situation better before it becomes out of our control. The fact that I nearly hated the subject of science and now I am able to explain serious situations to others are my highlights of the course because my professor made the class fun and kept me interested.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The keys to success in this class are to writing good notes, paying attention and attendance and its almost a guaranteed A in the class. He will make sure that you understand which notes are important and will most likely be on the test to try and prepare you the best as he can.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is probably one of the best professors/teachers that I have ever had in a few years because he didn't limit the class to just science he understands the life of a normal college student. We discussed more than the science that was involved with the earth we talked about politics, situations that happen across the world and ways we can better ourselves as a whole. He made class interesting and had students excited to learn.

    Course highlights:

    That our environment could actually be at risk of being destroyed and humans are the one to blame. A lot of people tend to brush off this situation but this is one of the very few problems that involves every single human being in the world. Many animals are endangered of going extinct and the average temperature of the earth keeps rising continuously and this is a major problem. The fact that a person like me who disliked and struggled with science in high school was able to have fun and learn in this class was the highlights for me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The key to success in this class would be note taking, he gives every answer on the test in class you just have to pay close attention and right down everything that he says is important. Attendance plays a huge role if you want to be successful in his class because you could miss multiple questions on a test just by not being able to attend class and take notes.
