Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this class because Amy makes the lectures so interesting and keeps you engaged. She also hands out study guides for every exam and final so she really does want her students to succeed and pass her class.
This class was so much fun! The biggest highlight I would say was our lecture and discussion on black holes and the theory of relativity. This was the most fun lecture because we got into some of the theories scientists had about black holes because not much is really known about them. Also the star parties were really fun as well because you got to hear the many different stories behind the constellations and use telescopes to see them and the planets. The last highlight of the class were the weekly star charts that we had to do even though it was cold. We had to go out weekly and graph where the different stars and constellations were in the sky. Lastly the final presentation and paper were a lot of fun! You get to choose your topic.

Advice for students:
It's really important to show up for every class because you never know when you have to turn in homework or when she assigns homework. Also she only hands out the study guides for tests the class before so if you don't show up you won't be prepared for the exam.
