    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was incredibly demanding but the quality of information obtained made the workload count for a greater purpose. I've never learned so much in a course and been able to apply the information I'd learned into so many aspects of my life. As many college students would concur, course content is just as important as the quality of the instructor. Ms. Holmes truly cares about her students on a personal level as well as their ability to retain the material. She shows it by keeping open communication, keeping track of every students grades, and emailing each student with their progress and her own support multiple times over the duration of the course.

    Course highlights:

    The best part about this class was learning about how my actions effect the world around me. We learned about concepts such as energy consumption and production, air pollution, global warming, what makes water so unique and vital to our world, water scarcity, and so much more. It is a class I think everyone should get the opportunity to take-- especially with an instructor as thoughtful and dedicated as Ms. Holmes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took this course online which has its own unique benefits, but which I ultimately regret. I feel that the content was much more difficult online than I would have been in person. Also, because it is a lab-science class, there is a mandatory lab kit (which costs over $200) that every student must purchase. With that being said, I think it is in other's best interest to take the course in person if possible. Science based courses have also always been my weakest subject, so that material took me much more time than it probably took others. The online version of this course's workload included a pre-lab quiz (estimated ten minutes), a lab (estimated three hours per lab), a thorough discussion post and response to two peers (estimated two hours per discussion post), a chapter out of the textbook (estimated twenty or more textbook pages per chapter), chapter videos which break down the chapter you'd read and include helpful information in understanding the material (estimated two hours per chapter via video), and a homework assignment (estimated hour or more to do the homework). As you can see, this is a TOUGH class. However, as already thoroughly explained, this course contained vital information for an individual to carry with them throughout their everyday lives.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was completely online, you even got your own lab kit to do labs at home!

    Course highlights:

    I loved doing the labs. I learned a lot about everyday processes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put aside time to get the bookwork done and watch the lecture videos, and then put aside time for the labs. Don't wait until the last day to do it all.
