    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it was more than just memorizing the facts or basic biological concepts, it was about applying them to real situations. The foundation level learning, including textbook reading, note taking, and learning of the facts that are typically memorized in a lecture-style course, is all done outside of the classroom. While in class, however, this knowledge is applied to bigger questions about problems facing the natural world. Furthermore, these questions are discussed in tables of 9 individuals who can then share their ideas with the class via microphones and/or monitors. This allows for great collaboration and an active learning experience.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I overall learned how to think scientifically. While we did focus in on the details of genetics and evolutions, we dived deeper into how these topics can be applied to solve real problems. For instance, there was a semester long project in which teams of 9 worked together to design a GMO that could benefit society. In order to meet this challenge, we had to apply the knowledge we had been gaining over the semester regarding genetic technology, mechanisms of evolution, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, one needs to be willing to put in a decent amount of time to truly learn the foundational concepts, because without them, it will be challenging to respond to application and/or critical questions on exams. I highly recommend studying what was discussed in class the most as these points are what the professor really wants the students to understand. Therefore, go through problems from class again, redraw diagrams, rematch videos, and most importantly, discuss key concepts with study groups in order to learn from each other and put your knowledge to the test.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is an interesting course with so much to offer. A lot of readings have to be done but it really helps your knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about GMO and Evolution. I really liked the GMO aspect of it because it brought everyone together(that is, people that were for or against GMO)

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. Study the materials thought that day as soon as possible.
