    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course had great instructors and is very helpful for anyone working towards a STEM major. It was very enjoyable and had interesting labs where we dissected organisms to better learn of their internal structures.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were definitely learning about how to determine an animals diet based on skull adaptations, isotope data, measuring the digestive tract, and testing for the presence of different macromolecules. This gave a real feel for how a lab would work to determine the diet of an unknown organism.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook and if you take the course during the summer, write your notes before class so you can actually pay attention to what the instructor is explaining. It is also good to ask for help and clarification when you need it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very beneficial to any science major. Material learned in this class helped me in other biology classes as well as my animal science classes. Having a pre-existing knowledge on things like how different body systems work is very helpful because in some of the following classes I took that material was just glossed over but we were still expected to know it.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge on how different systems in the human body function as well as their importance. This class also dove deep into how we classify organisms and used helpful visuals to aide in understanding. The plant section of this class was also very in depth and really took the information that most students learned in middle school and high school and heavily built on it. I feel like while it was challenging, it is very important for science majors

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students who plan on taking this course should really make sure they make time for this class. Not only does it have quite a bit of extra outside work, it's in everyone's best interest to allot time for frequent reviewing to make studying for frequent exams easier and not so overwhelming. It's not one of those classes you can cram for successfully

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Her part of the class was about animals and I liked what we learned about and especially what we did in lab. We looked at pig hearts, rat insides, marine animals, and skulls.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how animals changed overtime, invertebrates and vertebrates, the developmental stages of life, ecology, more in depth of the nervous system and digestive system, endocrine system, circulatory system in mammals and fish, and much more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for tests a week before and use tips from the A-Game book provided by the school. Go to class everyday and sit close to the front so you can ask questions if you're confused. Map concepts and questions to study and do white board checks.
