    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a great into class about astronomy. You learn constellations, moon phases, life cycle of stars, and black holes.

    Course highlights:

    You learn constellations, moon phases, life cycle of stars, and black holes. There are class trips to the planetarium, and required attendance at night to look through the telescopes on the roof of Philips. She provides multiple times for that so you will be able to make one of them. The best part is that this course is half online so you can do your homework whenever.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the videos and take notes on them. Before the test make sure you know all the answers to the packets with questions for each unit, about 10 of those will end up on the test. If you put effort into it then you will get a good grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is hilarious and the coursework isn't too difficult, but make sure you go to the professor if you're not nailing the homework. Professor Likkel will make sure you're getting 100% on the homework, which also helps your exam grades, because she wants to make sure you're learning the information. If you don't understand something, she will explain it to you so you do. The subject is amazingly interesting, and you can learn a lot about space and our world than you knew before.

    Course highlights:

    I'm enjoying learning about stars and their lives, as well as what happens after. I think the best thing is going to the in-school planetarium and watching her lecture on it. It's really fun to learn about the sky and what you can see there, and now every night I look up and see Venus and know what it is. I really like how its a hybrid class, where most of it is online, such as lectures and the homework and activities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make sure you go to the professor if you're having any trouble at all or aren't satisfied with your grade. Also, make sure you're checking over the answers to the homework when those are released so you can make sure if you get something wrong you don't in the future. Put the answers for the homework and activities in early online too so if you miss turning it in, she can go in and at least get you some points on the homework.
