    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    My Professor, Mr. Williams is the most passionate teacher I have ever learned from. The lessons were never boring, and he taught me about the nature of plants without a book. Of course reading the book was necessary though.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of the class was that I learned information beyond the textbook. For example, The Crimson Tide is a seasonal pollination event that occurs in Australia. The Crimson Tide for several days will turn certain bodies of water the color red. This is caused by a rare red Algae pollination cycle.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My first piece of advise is to pay attention everyday that you are in class. Lecture is fun and enjoyable if you desire or are interested in knowledge. Read all the required reading especially for Botany Lab. Make some friends in class because you may have to rely on them more than you think. Study for quizzes and test several days ahead of time if you want an A in the class. Also, my professor likes it when you participate in classroom discussion.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Williams is a very entertaining man and even if he may get slightly off topic at times, he is passionate about what he does and is absolutely hilarious! Looked forward to his lectures to wake me up in the morning.

    Course highlights:

    He showed us videos and images off the internet that were not only entertaining but educational as well. Really learned quite a bit in this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to go over your notes because sometimes little details can be forgotten even when they may be super important. Keep good notes that you can navigate later as well.
