This class was tough.
I took this course mainly to get a jumpstart on my future career in Aquatic Medicine. You'll learn a lot about early exploration of the ocean, black/white "smokers", plate boundaries, how the wind and sea work together to affect climate, ocean circulation, sea turtles, fish, ocean provinces, etc. you'll have quite a few projects and we dissected starfish, and sharks later in the year.
I learned a lot! Mostly from all the memorizing we did. At some point you'll have to memorize who contributed what to what we know about the ocean, the different zones and their characteristics, different types of plate boundries and what they do to the ocean, the role of spreading centers, parts of sea turtles, certain sea turtles and their characteristics, parts of a fish, different kinds of fish, where polar and sub polar gyres are located, the names of currents and where their located, and much more.

Advice for students:
Most of the work won't be so easy, and sometimes you might get little to no help with your questions, but if you study like you should, and do your work on time, it'll be smoothe sailing
