    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Interesting class, but extremely fast paced and hard to keep up with. The presentations are pretty boring because he speaks very monotone and mostly just reads off the slides.

    Course highlights:

    The topics covered were very interesting. You learn a little bit about everything relating to the field of science

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have no prior knowledge of chemistry or physics you are probably going to struggle. Always go to class and take notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is helpful to every area of study. The survey of physical science focuses mainly on physics with a small intro to astrology. Learning about why the world changes the way it does is very important. This course helps us understand the basic movements of the earth and how it reacts to our human life. Understanding this, will help us understand the movements of our body and the movements of the earth together.

    Course highlights:

    Thanks to this course I now have a better understanding of gravity. I found it interesting that to every action there is a constant reaction. For example, I learned that when I jump, there are multiple forces happening. First is the gravity pulling down on me, then me pushing on the earth, and the earth pushing back on me. This helped me to determine where the net force is at, and by doing so helps me in my dance. Leaping and jumping is something I do a lot, by learning this in this course I can apply physics to my dance career in order to improve.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires a lot of reading and self discipline. In order to do well in this course you must read on your own. Once you do that everything will start to make sense. It is a science based class so honestly, everything molds together and has a specific answer. Discipline yourself to read and study before the next class period and you will do well in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class goes over the basics of many scientific theories which is important for every professional to know. My one bit of caution is do not take this course in a Summer block. It is way too short a time frame to really grasp all that is being taught.

    Course highlights:

    This class actually prepared me fairly well for my current science class (Geology). It was also cool to learn about a lot of the subjects and anecdotes that are joked about on The Big Bang Theory.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In my class, we had worksheets for 30 of the 34 chapters studied varying in size from 60 to 200 questions each, many of which were not in the book nor taught in class. There is a lot of "common sense" involved, though the subject matter is not very common so take what you will from that.
