    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a tough course, and you're going to have to work at it. I am a biology major so I found it fascinating, but even for me, it was difficult. This is not a class to slack off in. You will switch professors half way through the course, one professor will be Hanjo Hellman, the other Lisa Carloye. I personally learned better from Hellman, and thought he was a much easier professor. However Carloye is a tough professor and you really have to know your stuff. My best advice: STUDY. I'm not talking about cramming the night before. As soon as you learn the material, go over it when you get home, take notes off of the notes you took in class, review the lecture slides and GO TO CLASS. There are clicker questions everyday that are a good portion of your grade.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned a lot of valuable background information that will be useful to my career. I learned about how everything in our ecosystems have a job, and keeps the ecosystem functioning, even the smallest things, like worms. Hellman specializes in plants, so with him you will learn about plant cycles and how plants effect other aspects of ecosystems. Carloye specializes in animals, so with her, you will learn about evolution, eras, how organisms each play a part in their ecosystem and different cycles the animal kingdom goes through.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. This is the most important thing with any college course, but it holds especially true for this one. Also, this is a class of 500+ students, so when you go to class actually pay attention. Don't let your mind wander with your cell phone or start watching Netflix on your laptop. Go to class, pay attention, I always find it's easier to pay attention if you sit in the front, or near it. Take notes and review them and always turn your homework in on time. I found it helpful in this class to form a small study group and take the quizzes together and study for exams. Having several people's perspectives and different ways of learning really helps to grasp the material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was hard to say the least. The professor for the plants part was great, but the second professor moved too quickly, and while she was obviously passionate about what she taught, it sometimes clouded her ability to present the information in a way that made sense to students.

    Course highlights:

    Provided an introduction to a lot of different kinds of biology and information learned in this class will help in the higher level classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I hope you have good memorization techniques because this course was very memorization-oriented and it was hard to succeed if you did not have this background.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Even though science is not my favorite topic, having Lisa for Biology 106 was a great experience and i liked the way that she set up her power-points to teach us. first she would give us the big overall picture of the topic so we could see it all them she would break it down so we could better understand everything that went together to make the systems.

    Course highlights:

    For Lisa section she taught us about animals and their systems work. We learned many different things about them like all the different types of animals. How they are different and why, the change animals have overtime to fit to their environments and grow. Their was a lot to learn in this section and i think i struggled most with the vocab and memorizing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put as much time for this course in as you can to study and to understand the vocab and memorize the systems. Ask questions find people to study with and don't wait til last minute for exams and quizzes to study.
