    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Okay so this course was not my favorite to have taken this semester. Mr. Kimball hated having cell phones in his class and would kick people out for having them. He told us that food and drink were not allowed yet everyday he walked in with a cup of tea and slurped in throughout the class.

    Course highlights:

    Whenever something was going to be on the test professor Kimball wound bang on something to let you know it was important. He touched on the zodiacs for a day but it was only to help make his point about another topic.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't have an intense interest in the sky this class can be quite boring. I mistakenly thought this class would focus more on the constellations but it was more so for the planets and the science behind their movements. I suggest looking up the class reviews and believing them instead of thinking you can get through it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is awesome! He is very kind and compasionate about students to learn about the world of Astronomy. This course is intended for non-science majors, but a science major would do absolutely fine.

    Course highlights:

    As a class, we were able to go the roof of the school's parking garage and see Mercury through a telescope. It was extremely cool to be able to watch because you can only see this a certain time of year. The professor offers extra credit for it, and it is so fun you wouldn't want to miss it anyway!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes and you will do great on the tests. Each test comes directly from class notes. There is nothing on the test that would not be in the notes. He also gives an in class study guide the day before the test to make sure nobody has questions on anything. He's a great professor.

    Course Overview:

    This professor is aewsome! He is very kind and compassionate about students learning about the world of Astronomy. The course is intended for non-science majors.

    Course highlights:

    Students learn about the basics of our solar system and the formation of our stars and planets. As a class, we had the opportunity to view Mercury through a telescope. It was extremely cool because Mercury can only be viewed through a telescope during certain times of year. We had the opportunity to view at stars 4 times through a telescope during the course. The professor offered extra credit for each session you attended.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good detailed notes and study the notes for tests and you will do great on every test. The tests literally come directly from course notes.
