    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is the one that made me fall in love with the natural sciences, and ultimately led me to change my major. It's a great course for people who need to satisfy a core class, without getting too far into hefty equations, abstract concepts, and—many people's least favorite—complicated mathematics. In this course you'll learn about the world around you. From close-to-home topics like colors and acoustics, to historical journeys through the cosmos and physics experiments, this course satisfies almost anything you wanted to know (and a whole lot more you never thought of!) I absolutely loved this course, it engaged me at every moment, and I'd take it all over again if I could.

    Course highlights:

    The professor encourages dialogue during the lectures, and really tries to get the students to think about the topics at hand. The topics we went over in class really made me think more actively about what was going on around me and how things work, the science behind it. I started to see things differently, study all of my other classes more intently (which got me better grades!), because I could see the scientific connections between all of them. It just...really makes you think on a deeper level, and that's what college is all about.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open-minded. Many people go into science and math courses being very scared that they will fail from the first day. But if you view this course as a tool to help you understand life and your place in the world, it turns those hard concepts into easy-to-digest points of intrigue. Also, make sure to use the workbook they assign! It'll help so much on tests.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course. Physics has always interested me, but this course took it to another level. Not only is it beyond interesting, the course is also designed to help the student as much as possible. I am taking it online, and quizzes and projects are all well explained and Dr. Secaur is more concerned about how much you learn than due dates.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the first few modules, when we learned about astronomy and zodiac signs. The Professor gets so unbelievably excited about the material which gets the students excited.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be excited! Don't think of it as a physics class. It is so much more and so much better than that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's an easy class with a helpful instructor, the book isn't overpriced, and you don't get bored in class!

    Course highlights:

    I've learned a lot of physics theories, ones that aren't literate and ones that you actually use!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes. And attend class because you could understand more than reading
