    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a high school senior interested in dentistry, I felt the need to want to be ahead in my classes and figured what better way to do this than take a Dual Credit one. What I really love about this course is that it takes you through the process on how to actually become a chemist through the first 4 units of the class. Currently i have just finished 1 unit called "The Air We Breathe" and am already starting the next called "The Ozone Layer." What I personally recommend on the first unit, though, is if your taking this course you must actually pay attention to the areas you are having trouble with. For example, I personally had a difficult time trying to convert numbers to significant figures and, despite the fact that i didn't know how to do them properly, I constantly re watched the modules and asked my teacher to help me which, in the long run, is the wisest thing a student could do. Tackling this course is easy once you get the hang of it and the biggest advice I can give to someone is to just ask questions when faced with a certain topic they don't understand and TAKE NOTES!!! With this in mind, you'll see that overall this class is very fun and interesting in manner considering you are learning all about the Earth and its concepts.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course so far for me is learning about the facts of the Earth. What I mean by this is that this course actually enlightens one why it is important to take consideration of our beautiful planet. For example, I have just recently learned that the Pollution Prevention Act established in 1990 made people realize how precise and ideal it is to do everything they possibly can to prevent the causes of pollution. What interests me about that is how everyone must now take into consideration the reason why it is ideal to keep our planet healthy for future generations. With this fact, and along with many other topics discussed in this course, I recommend that anyone should take this class who is interested in Chemistry or of the Earth in general.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to any student is to ASK QUESTIONS, take many notes, and practice. As long as you are willing to learn I would say this course will be a breeze and interesting to know. It also is a great college experience getting used to submitting assignments on time through online and teaches you to be a more responsible, caring student.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a huge class!!! This professor is excellent! I wish I could have her in a ll of my future science classes. She keeps the class engaged and we learn so much without having to use a textbook for it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the environment and through chemistry how we are effected by it daily. I learned that taking notes are so important!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take time out to review your notes. Come to class on time. Go to office hours!!! She appreciates students who take the time to review their previous tests or problems they got stuck on. She is one of the best professors at UT and I really feel that you don't find professors like this that often, so take advantage of this opportunity to learn as much as you can!
