    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is perfect for non-science majors who do not wish to memorize in-depth scientific formulas.

    Course highlights:

    The experiments performed by the professor during lectures always proved entertaining. He also gave the class many tidbits of information "to impress our friends," in his words, which provided real-life application. Most of the things I took away from this class are based on my personal interests and which concepts made sense to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to all the lectures because there are lecture activities on random dates, and always do the extra credit on the homeworks because it will pay off in the end.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class was very interesting and doable, even for non-astronomy oriented people.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was definitely watching the professor light a helium balloon on fire, and also watching him crush a soda can with magnets, and shoot a pencil tho=rough a wooden board.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to learn a bunch of formulas and know when to use them.
