    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course that helps you get an insight into the biology world. Gives you basic information that's important to know in life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is just everything you learn. You learn about different cycles and chemical reactions that occur in the human body. And you learn a lot of interesting facts that can be helpful when it comes to being healthy and taking care of your body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study!! It is a tough course, but not as tough if you study hard enough. Make flash cards, they are the best form of studying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course. It is an interesting class taught by a phenomenal teacher. You will learn so much about the world you live in you had never even thought of before.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the extra credit activities such as drawing a cell and filling in a mitosis chart which are VITAL in doing well on the exams. I learned so much in the class including but not limited to mitosis, meiosis, transcription, translation, the cell cycle, photosynthesis, inheritance, reproduction, and cellular respiration

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest advice is to not procrastinate and not to start her study guide the day before the exam. She uploads every chapter from the beginning of the course including the study guides and you should fill in the study guide as you listen in lecture.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Fretz is what any student would dream for in an instructor. He took a seemingly boring class, that was three hours long, that started at 7:00pm-10:00pm and made it interesting, fun, and enjoyable. He was funny, kind, and he genuinely cares about the personal success and well-being of his students. He is also a very understanding professor. While in his class I had life blindside me. I experience the death of my brother, grandfather, and one of my friends all in a span of two months. Professor Fretz not only understood, but did what he could to cooperate with me and find a middle ground so I could still be successful in his course. In this course you learned about Mitosis and Meiosis, along with Photosynthesis, and Natural Selection. I could go on and on about the material learned and the kindness of Professor Fretz. Overall I give him and this course a 5/5, if I could I would give hime a 8/5. In all I would recommend to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the differences between Mitosis and Meiosis, along with the different stages of each. We covered photosynthesis and natural selection, along with the process of the growth of plant life and the genetic coding behind each of us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although it may seem like a boring class, try to have fun with it. It is a class that can be very insightful if you are willing to pay attention to the lessons.
