    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Astronomy was an amazing class. I have yet to hear a bad thing about the class or any of the instructures. It's truly wonderful and mind blowing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was going out and having to find and draw the constellations. Not only do you learn about them in class but you get to go outside and see them for yourself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There's more math than you might expect, but if you know basic algebra, you'll do fine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this astronomy class with no previous knowledge of astronomy and I ended up learning so much!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me were definietly the star parties that we had! At these parties our class would go out at night into the field and look up at the stars, constellations, and planets with Shamrell's huge telescope. Definietly lots and lots of fun!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a fun, but also very challenging course. Make use of office hours and ask questions if you don't understand something. Shamrell is very easy to talk to and loves answering questions.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good class and the teacher knew what he was doing. He gives a lot of opportunities for extra credit. The only downside was that the exams were very hard and they are nearly impossible to get and A on them.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about why the solar system, planets, sun and stars were formed. Most of the class was focused on the planets and their classifications.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, and more study when it comes it the tests. He likes to nit pick the details. Also attend all the labs because for the most part they're easy points.
