    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course! It was conducted in a lecture hall and is a rather large class. However, Mr. Marihazy made sure to greet each student whenever possible and even went around the room before class started to ask if the students had any questions about anything in the course. His lectures were very thorough and his study guides were helpful. I would most definitely recommend this class!

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I gained a deeper understanding of the Earth and things work. We learned everything from how heat is conducted and moves to how the molecules of waves move in a circular motion. The professor is very knowledgeable and thorough in his teachings. I myself learned a lot about time zones and the Coriolis Effect, but I think I had the most fun with tides and waves!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, read the textbook! Although the professor does his best to make everything clear and include all of the necessary material, reading the textbook will definitely help clarify things that he may not have had time to go deeper into during the lecture. One more tip: Take notes. You'll thank yourself for them!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I went into this class worried that I wouldn't do well and hoping that I would so I could finish a science prerequisite. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really loved this class. Every class was incredibly interesting and even though most students didn't like that the professor would not give study guides but only sections to know were on the exam helped me to do well.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't realize before this class that geography isn't just for states but really the earth. I liked this class a lot because everything we learned was practical. I can take everything I learned and actually apply it in everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will have to study in this class or you won't do well. The only grades are on exams. There are four exams and one exam will be dropped. It was especially beneficial for me to work with a study group.
