    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was an incredibly interesting and interactive way to earn some of my science credit and I recommend it to anybody that would be even minutely interested in this topic. I felt that Skinner was a very engaging and interactive professor who wanted her students to learn and succeed in the classroom environment. We had opportunities for office hours and extra credit throughout, while the guidelines for the class were clearly laid out immediately and made the assignments easy to follow and understand. I really enjoyed every lecture this class had and would recommend to students of all majors!

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much from this course, it was a very interesting and eye opening class, that engaged its students in new ways. The online readings got me used to reading for various other classes while training me in the ability to pick out useful information that I had to learn. The class also taught basic warning signs and ways to mitigate geologic disasters which can help in all my future endeavors and even basic survival. The class was an interesting escape from the other topics I learned about and provided diverse information and interesting topics from earthquakes to the different types volcanos.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say the most important thing to do and remember in this class is to make sure that one is studying the weekly readings while also reading them throughly. I would read through the section once, and then go over and read it again highlighting the important sections before the weekly quiz. The study sessions she provides with her TAs are incredibly helpful to her tests since her major tests are more conceptual then memory of information, so make sure you are prepared! Take every extra credit opportunity you can in the end it can add up to about twenty five points. Make sure to take involved notes during class and try not to miss classes because you can't make up activities that you missed in class. Overall the class is engaging enough to keep interested and involved and will push you to succeed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was the most engaging and easy to pass science class at NAU. The professor was young and energetic and the material was prevalent and often entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    The field trips to volcanoes! We went out to several hot spots and volcanoes in Flagstaff and were able to spend the day outside and collecting rocks.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you attend the labs. That's where a lot of attendance and participation points come from.
