    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wish so bad I'd just taken Chem. If you are just looking for a science to fill the requirement take anyone else but her. I heard Mr. Richards is pretty easy. Her lectures are very interesting but if you dont get it there's not a whole lot of help to be had by her. I would love to take this class if I didnt have anything else going on in life. Its an interesting course but It requires a LOT of time put into it. The only good thing was attendance is not required, good attendance just gets you bonus points.

    Course highlights:

    Its a very interesting course about the contents of the universe and what space matter and planetary bodies tells us about earth.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    only take lawler if you are a phys major!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The solar system may sound basic and boring, but that is the opposite of this class. You get to visit a planetarium (transportation provided by the university of course) and participate in cool science experiments that actually make you feel like a professional astronomer. This class was so much fun.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part in taking this course was visiting the planetarium. We got to see the moon, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus, and all different types of galaxies. You learn different names of stars, constellations, and the stories behind them. It was so cool!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to do all the online homework assignments for this class! It may seem like a lot, but you might just see the majority of those questions on your exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Lawler is very helpful and truly cares about your success in her course. Anytime i needed extra help whether it be extra credit opportunities, or just tutoring during her office hours, she was very motivational and insightful.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned a lot about the solar system and its origins and characteristics. I've also learned a lot about zodiac signs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do your homework and study lawler's review and you will be perfectly fine.
