Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is even remotely interested in learning more about the ocean! It is very interesting and Professor Walter is very passionate about the subject, which rubs off on his students. I always look forward to attending his lectures and this class has inspired me to take more marine science courses and make changes in my everyday life that will help our oceans.
I gained a newfound appreciation for our ocean and the planet Earth from taking this course. Not only did I learn how many processes involving the ocean occur, but I also learned ways in which people like me can impact the ocean, both positively and negatively, and actions we can take to help fight climate change and live more sustainable lives. I really enjoyed all of the videos and interactive activities that Professor Walter included in his lectures, which I feel really aided in my understanding of the subject matter.

Advice for students:
I would consider taking some sort of physics course beforehand, because that is the basis of this class and I think that taking physics in high school really helped me succeed in this course. I would also recommend completing all of the homework assignments and reviewing them before the exams because they are very relevant and similar to the problems that appear on the tests and quizzes.
