    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will challenge you and to think outside of the box. Dr. Arangno is honestly one of my favorite teacher’s I have had throughout all of my schoolings. She I willing to answer any questions and will take the time and answer them, her goal is for her students to understand the material and not be lost. She is very passionate about the material and thoroughly enjoys teaching the course.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new understanding of how to look at things differently, and the various avenues you can take when tackling a problem. This course will teach you more about how people talk and structure their argument, then deciphering whether or not they are valid.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best tip for this class is to ask questions and have her explain it in a different way if needed. Practice will be the key, and also having a strong understanding of the material. It will be confusing at first, but after it’s explained, you will understand it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The subject material is very simple to grasp once you understand the principles of it. Most people get the material very quickly and can easily apply the concepts. The teacher herself is very, very fun, and makes the work fun. She makes sure that everybody is on the same page before moving to the next steps of the material. It's a great course and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to analyze sentences for their truth values, which sounds tedious but really isn't. It's very homework light, and the midterm and final are very simple tests that everybody finished in about twenty or thirty minutes. The teacher is lovely, an old pro, and will make the course very easy for you.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study up the ways to do truth tables. Nothing more to it. If you really don't understand it, go to tutoring. They have great people there that can help you figure it out.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only was the course great for breaking down critical thinking into a simple, practically mathematical format, but professor Arangno was very well suited to teach it. She came in each class with a great smile and an encouraging attitude. This made attending class in the morning so much more delightful.

    Course highlights:

    It was great to have a professor who genuinely cared about the success of the entire class. Tests were only given when she was confident of our ability to do well. I learned not only how to break down arguments and prove their validity, but also to evaluate for informal fallacies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say take the class no matter what! However, it is not an easy A class for anyone. It does require you to ask questions, actually pay attention, and practice (meaning to complete all assigned homework). This course is worth it, not just for mere interest, but it is very applicable to your interaction in day to day life.
