    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is extremely informative and Professor Kiefer really knows his stuff. He also gives a lot of opportunities for students to do well including study guides, hand-written info sheets to use during exams, and extra credit assignments.

    Course highlights:

    The course begins with information about the earth (seasons, tides, our place in the solar system). He talks about issues regarding major heavenly bodies (sun, moon) and then moves into great detail about the stars. Don't be fooled by his easy/ slow start. The class will be sure to go into topics with which you may not be familiar such as dark matter and HR Diagrams.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attending lectures is a plus because he gives a lot of important details that will appear on exams (all exams are multiple choice). If you spend a lot of time working on the exam review sheets and writing the "cheat sheet" for the exam, you should do well. Some of the lessons require light math but that's nothing to fear; basic algebra will get your through.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Kiefer presents a highly organized, informative and interesting class. He engages with the students and is interested in our success in the course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was the extra credit assignment in which we were sent out into the world to engage with astronomers and scientists around the subjects we studied in class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to be on time, be prepared, take good notes, do the reading, ask questions and enjoy the class.
