    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was interesting to learn more about the solar system a lot of the science behind how things work. It was a lot harder than expected because of the math involved, but still an interesting course to take.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was talking about the different formation and makeup of the planets in our solar system. It was really interesting to learn about and something I was pretty interested in. This class covers a wide range of topics involving the solar system, so it is a class where you learn a lot.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As far as general courses go it is an easy one to take. Just be prepared to put in some time on the math involved in the course. The professor also answers almost all of the questions (other than math problems) during in class lectures, so bring your homework to class and follow along during the lecture.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I found this class very interesting and would highly recommend it. It gives an introduction to our galaxy and the universe while lightly touching on the math and science behind it, without baffling the beginner.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed some of the experiments and in class demonstrations that we did to better understand the physics behind the course material. It was a great help to be able to visually understand some of the things that would have otherwise been much harder to think of in an abstract sense.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you keep up on the questions asked in class as well as the reading done before. They help quite a lot in the understanding of the lesson.
