    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I found this class to be very easy and very intriguing. Mr. Matteson is extremely engaging and tries to teach us the topics through discussion more than just reading information off of the slides. I thoroughly enjoyed the class.

    Course highlights:

    What my class talked about this semester may be completely different from what another class did last semester or even what another class from this semester would talk about because Mr. Matteson gives us a survey at the beginning of the semester with a bunch of topics to chose from for us to talk about. From there, he decides the lesson plan for the semester. We talked about everything ranging from speech censorship, to drugs, to genetic enhancement. If it brings up and moral or ethical concern, we are liable to discuss it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes when you do your readings. They will definitely help you with your Argument Critiques and they will help you with your reading questions as well as with the quizzes. Try to get as many Argument Critiques done towards the beginning of the semester as you can because Mr. Matteson grades a bit easier and it is just nice to not stress about not having enough argument critiques in by the end of the semester. You only need 5 so it is not that hard. Lastly, show up to class. He keeps record of your attendance and although canvas will say that it does not affect your final grade it will. My attendance from missing one too many classes dropped my grade from a 91 to an 89.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student because I believe the challenges that it presents provide you with a better understanding of the course material. The instructor does not use technology but teaches in a lecture style with course notes provided. I really liked this because I could focus on the instructors lecture rather than focusing on note taking. The readings in this course are also very helpful. If you read and understand them you are sure to do well on the exams. Also, each class meeting had an element of discussion. The instructor was very open to opinions and thoughts on both the reading and his lecture. This aspect of the course makes it easy to learn and master the material as well as ensures that your understanding of the material is correct.

    Course highlights:

    I learned several methods and theories of philosophy throughout this course. I learned about prestigious philosophers and I got to read some of their works as well. The readings in this course are a collection of critiques that philosophers compose based on original works. This style of writing allows you to master two pieces of writing at one time, each very thoroughly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely advise students to take this course. I really felt good about what I was learning and I felt that the material I was learning was useful in reality. This class provides you with a platform to express opinions and explore others opinions as well.
