    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Clark is no longer teaching this course but the class itself was amazingly fun and I learned a lot. Astronomy is always an interesting topic which is what makes it easy to remember.

    Course highlights:

    The outdoor labs we did were really fun and cool. We had the opportunity to look at some stars and the moon through big telescopes. The moon was so bright and big looking through these telescopes that it was almost blinding! I'll always remember that lab.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook wasn't super necessary but it made a huge difference when the exams came around. Studying for this class isn't hard as long as you put in just a little bit of effort.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Haaften is brilliant. He does have a slight accent but is very enthusiastic and excited to teach this course. He explains things very well and answers questions with specificity. Tests are curved and he will only take your best of the two. He assigns homework every week with two questions pulled from it to make a weekly quiz. Stay on top of the notes and terminology and you should do fine.

    Course highlights:

    This course focuses a lot on stars and stellar activity. The class is very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Focus on quizzes. They are a good indication as the kind of questions he will ask and many tests have former quiz and homework questions on them. There is some math involved, it is usually basic equations that you will be required to memorize and the numbers are simple on tests and quizzes so that you should be able to mentally solve them.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is incredibly interesting and also not an easy class. In this class you learn about our solar system, galaxy, as well as other topics in space.

    Course highlights:

    I liked this class because it honestly was not an easy class, but if you put the work in you will learn so much and find it to be one of the most interesting classes you could ever take.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for the tests well in advance and go to his office to get the powerpoint slides to use to study for the tests also because they make a big difference and it also shows that you're putting in effort and he likes that.
