    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Secaur takes huge ideas that are almost abstract due to their scope and manages to shrink them down into something much easier to comprehend. Grasping difficult concepts are made easy. He's a student's teacher and will work with you to ensure the best education possible. This was the most interesting class I took during my four years at Kent.

    Course highlights:

    The scaled down versions of the universe really show how colossal it really is.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and pay attention. It's very easy as long as you show up. Dr. Secaur treats it more like an entertaining show of information rather than a class you need to study for. It's an easy A and very enjoyable experience.

    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.
