    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    He is amazing. He is so enthusiastic about his teaching. It could be a boring subject to some but because he loves it so much, his feelings are contagious to the students. Loved him!!

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Price actually took us for a walk around the campus to look at different trees and pine cones. Did you know there are male and female pine cones? I didn't. We also grew different types of bacteria. Another thing he showed us was how to grow hydroponic plants not in just water but water with fish and the plants actually love the fish poo.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The tests are pretty easy but make sure you study. Oh and he does give pop quizzes of only 5 questions and they are over the material from the day before.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My least favorite subject is Science and in this course I earned an understanding and appreciation for Biology.

    Course highlights:

    The lectures were the highlight for me. You learn everything from atom particles to cells and the foundation of life as we know it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Study! Study! You should study at least an hour a day to be prepared for quizzes that come unexpectedly and for the tests,

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I feel it is very important for everyone to have a general knowledge of biology. The professor I had has a very unusual way of teaching in which she was very reserved and forced the students to really become more hands on with their learning if they wanted to pass her class. This form of teaching threw many of the students off but eventually we came together as a class and I feel like in the end we learned the material more thoroughly because we were forced to be so hands on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of what I learned in this class was basic knowledge of biology. How the ecosystem around us works, types of organisms, how they reproduce, what makes up an organisms, cell structures, and basic genetics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class I would suggest taking an in class option. This way you will have the opportunity to take in detail notes, interact with classmates, ask the professor to expand on some subject matter, and possibly gain a larger understanding of biology. I would also suggest taking time to read through the chapters thoroughly and doing any online study materials the teacher makes available.
