    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a great introduction to the Earth Sciences for freshmen. There were many applicable labs and the lab format was taught well. Projects were fun and caused students to exercise creativity. However, what you put into it is what you get out, so it's necessary to study for the tests, as they can otherwise be a bit difficult; luckily, everything on the finals are on the tests throughout the year, making studying more convenient. For students who are not scientifically-inclined, the course may be rather challenging, as it was for me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course for me was the section detailing the life cycle of stars. The corresponding project was fun to do, as it was a flip chart that I colored once I was done researching in class, and it made it incredibly convenient to use as a study resource for the test! In addition, the lab work regarding rocks and their various traits was both entertaining and useful, with students invited to scratch and sniff various rocks with no shame whatsoever. It was a great introduction to geology for some students.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend seeing the teacher if the notes do not make sense; because the subject matter in this course is easily transferred to projects, it is imperative to know the information before these projects come up. I would also recommend keeping up with lab deadlines, as it is stressful to try and finish a lab write-up the day of or even the night before the turn-in date.
