Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend the course for anyone who needs a basic science credit, that is not much of a science person. As a person who is not the best at science but not the worst this was an easy course. This is a lecture hall type class which has 150+ students in the course but it is not your typical boring lecture class. Ted was a very nice guy, but things into words a typical person would understand and could remember. Powerpoint was on blackboard so you could print them off or download to your computer. He would have in class assignments and homework count as attendance points but never took attendance other than that. Ted was a very nice well respected guy.
In this course I learned many different things. The major things I learned about that Ted made interesting is plate tectonics and the different types of movements plate boundaries happen. I also learned about the different types of rocks and their differences. Lastly another thing interesting that I learned about was about how volcanoes and earthquakes occur and all the damage they can cause.

Advice for students:
Make sure you write down what he says is important for the exam because it will be on the exam! Even though attendee is not mandatory, go to class, powerpoint are mainly pictures so you can not only study powerpoints you need to go to class to get a good grade in class
