    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. K is the best professor. She is extremely helpful in explaining notes and is an energetic educator who is passionate about learning. The class itself is also very interesting. I learn something new every single day.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about astronomy it is unbelievable. It's amazing how much of our lives link to the history behind this subject, and it is an incredibly interesting topic to learn about in general. My favorite unit was constellations and learning about how they connect to us.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes, Dr. K is very good at explaining things so get all the information you can! Always study for upcoming quizzes and do the extra credit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone because it is very interesting and the teacher is amazing. She is hilarious and can teach very well. The material and method of teaching is very practical too.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the relationship between Earth and space and beyond. All the information was very accurate and intriguing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and pay attention. She puts the notes online for students who miss but going to class is beneficial to gain and absorb as much knowledge as possible. The quizzes are weekly which help review all concepts for the final.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is great! Not only does she teach the material very well, but she makes it interesting! She also provides make-up papers for quizes!

    Course highlights:

    I learned many of the constellations and how to recognize them, the different types of stars, and a lot of information about all of the planets

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go to class every day and take detailed notes! If you miss a day, she has notes on D2L, but its not as effective as actually being in class!
