    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I woudl highly recommend this course highly, not only for the reason it is highly interesting but is extremely beneficial in the sense that the course focuses on what seems to be a comparison of the young and the elderly. This course was helpful in the sense of practically, this course is not of a high school scene, where you learn then forget, it assists in a lifelong journey.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of the course were the demonstration, extremely helpful to understand and brings out a good laugh from the demonstrators and the viewers. Of the many topics disscussed throughout the course what I found most interesting was how doing this at a young age such as exercise, will help in the future, rather than attempting to reconcile in the later future. You learn of the body and how it functions and how to maintain it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give students entering this course is to absolutely attend the lecture. Listening to a podcast is not the same as in person. There may be a demonstration from the professor or lecturer, that will give you a memory of how a certain feature may work. Do the study guide first, then the practice exam, you will learn better. When revising a past exam neat the date of the coming exam do not focus on the topic, focus more on the question format, if that is what is missed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because both Professor Shaffrath and Professor Baar are definitely very passionate and engaging with their students about what they teach. They take their lectures very seriously, professionally, and humorously as well. This is a lower division course for the non-major in exercise biology. However, this general education course provided me so much insight on the aspect of biological sciences, motivating and inspiring me to achieve the potential physiological human adaptations in terms of health in fitness (optimal speed, strength, and endurance).

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were revealing the optimal methods of training for athletic fitness and examining the evidence that regular exercise provides long-term health benefits over the course of the human life span. I really enjoyed how the course settled the human biological potential in the historical context of evolution, physiologic adaptation, psychological and social-cultural interactions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students considering this course is being sure to do the readings assigned most especially when this is a course that only gives students short AND few readings! Definitely take a listen to the podcasts of each lecture despite having attended all the lectures because there are a lot of interesting facts that should be taken into account of not only temporarily preparing for the midterms and exam, but even preparing for your future emotional and physical well-being. To be aware of the central issues in the biological sciences of how you can be vulnerable to the dangers of society based on your long-term location and activity. All in all, listen to the podcasts in which you had trouble absorbing from the lectures, and do the recommended readings and study the review questions and practice-exams. Yes! The professors actually provide that. Isn't that nice?
