    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class because there is a lot of reading in the book. This biology is way more in-depth with everything. If you like learning about life, I wouldn't recommend this class if you don't have a lot of time, or if you aren't willing to think and work very hard.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the few labs we did do. We were able to dissect a deer heart, and that was very interesting and fun. I learned a lot about carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, and lipids. We learned about how proteins are formed and problems that could affect proteins. We also went over photosynthesis and cellular respiration quickly and worked out a lab for each of them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If the teacher is the same as mine when you take the class, make sure to always read the chapter when it is assigned. This class is a lot of work, so you have to be determined to do the work. With the reading, you also need to complete the reading guides. If there is anything you don't understand in the packet, make sure to go in for help. The class doesn't go over the answers, so if you don't ask for help, you won't get help. You should also look at videos online about the subject from Bozeman Science or Khan Academy if you need someone to explain it for you. It's very important not to get behind because there are quizzes for every chapter and, of course, a test. If you get behind it will be very difficult to read multiple chapters and it may create a domino effect. So just do all of your work and make the class a priority.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it is absolutely insane how much information is taught and learned in the allotted amount of time. The teacher, Mr. Stading, is an amazing teacher and organizes his class very well. We would do the same routine each week, which really helped in the overall understanding of the material. He would show a powerpoint on Monday over the chapter, explaining the overall concept we were learning. Then we would study on the computer and in the book on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday was the review game and Friday was the test. It took a lot of dedication but I loved every minute in that class.

    Course highlights:

    In Medical Terminology, we first learned the basic word roots, prefixes, and suffixes in the medical language. It was not easy, but once you memorized them, you were on the right path. After that, we had a chapter each week over a different system of the body. In this chapter, they included parts of words associated with it and their meanings, anatomy of the system, and many conditions that could arise. It was expected that the student study on his/her own time and memorize these parts. The tests were not overly hard if you actually took the time to study.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would just suggest that any student wanting to take Medical Terminology is prepared for some extra work outside of class. I saw many students fail in my class because they did not take fifteen to twenty minutes out of their day to go over the material. It is a lot of memorization, so being able to go back over and over it and make it stick is essential. It is a really fun class if the student is interested in the body and how it works.
