    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are curious about the stars. If you like to look up at the sky and wonder what is going on outside of our planet. I loved this class because all that I have learned and it puts my spectrum on the world differently then when I started out. It has lots of labs but if you can keep organized it will go well and the labs are really fun.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the labs were the highlight of this class. I learned how cratering is formed, the difference between shooting stars and meteors, and why we can see other planets from ours.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say just stay organized and be on time to class. Don't miss out on class otherwise work will start to pile up for you. Be sure to keep an open mind even if science is not for you be willing to find something good about class or it will just be miserable for you. Make sure to keep track of dates for homework or you will feel overwhelmed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This teacher was straight forward and actually enjoyed what he was teaching about so he brought passion to his lectures. He was organized which I find to be very important when looking into courses and teachers and has a great grading process. Do yourself the favor and take his class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights was being in a well, organized class with a professor that had a great attitude and was excited to teach!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get your assignments, quizzes and lab assignments at good grades from the beginning so you don't have to worry about it at the end. TAKE NOTES.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very informative, if a bit math-heavy. The professor was knowledgeable and encouraged a lot of exciting discussions in class, and he really got everyone into the subject.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed our discussions on black holes and dark matter the most.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework and make sure you understand the math. If you have trouble, Khan Academy is your best friend.
