    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course highly to any science-hater who wants to love the subject! Too often for me in high school, Science was dry and abstract. Bio 1410 changed all that. I was fortunate to have a dynamic, fun teacher who loved her subject and helped me to visualize the amazing world of Biology. She would assign students to roles as water molecules or have us do origami in order to better understand the four structures of a protein. And I am not even mentioning the science parodies of popular songs she would play before class...in short, Biology for the first time in my life became a subject to look forward to and this course will stay with me for all my career and all my life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned hundred of facts about cells and their functions and most of all I learned that, yes, this can even be interesting!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read before class;ask questions if you don't understand; and do all the homework and review sheets!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for any biology or health majors because it is a proficient course that goes along with your pace of learning. The teacher is very helpful, especially online with notes, homework, and study guides to help with tests and exams. She made sure we understood the material to the best of our knowledge by using hands on learning and visual learning. She gave great examples for both methods.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was definitely blackboard. If I missed anything from notes to homework I could easily get into blackboard to look it up. I learned about the life of cells and how they function.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to definitely study all the material leading up to finals. DO NOT wait till the last minute or couple days beforehand. There's too much information to cover. Throughout the semester you should be going over the material from the current chapters to previous chapters. We had 4 exams throughout the semester before our final exam. Definitely go over those. They will help. All the answers were posted online on blackboard. Go over all the homework you have throughout the term. All these questions from the homework assignments to exams will be on the final. If you do this, you will be just fine. Good luck in your academic studies :)

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very interesting course especially if you are interested in the health/medical field. The way that the body works to preform different tasks is so amazing with all of the moving parts so microscopic we have no idea about.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how the cells in our body work. Cells are so amazing because they are so small but they preform the most incredible of tasks. Learning about how our cells preform different tasks, survive, and replicate is very intriguing. I was lucky enough to have a great instructor who taught us about this amazing function of the human body.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you must not take information giving and only try to memorize it. You will not learn this way and not fully understand the course. You must learn the information and understand how it works. I usually tried to understand the information well enough so that I could teach someone else about it. That is when I knew I understood what I was writing down.
