    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class focused on how humans use plants. It was divided into different categories of plant such as legumes, fruits, and seeds. Further it described medicinal benefits, technological advances correlated, and phylogeny to other plants. I feel it helped to teach a broad topic and narrowed it down into useful categories that I'll remember every time I see specific plants.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights to this course were learning the different plants and their uses by humans. At the end of the semester, Dr. Rani brought in a large variety of non-local fruits and vegetables to try such as dorian, ugly fruit, persimmons, and cumquats to allow us to taste fruits we hadn't had opportunity to have before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely recommend reading over the powerpoint before and after class. I also would recommend taking detailed notes based on the stories that Dr. Rani tells as they will help you to remember potential quiz and test topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good way to learn about plants and it relation to humans. With the notes, book and cd available, the teacher makes it interesting to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I was intrigued as I learnt things like brocoflower, jack fruit and other things like okra referred to as lady fingers. It was also quite fascinating to learn about the right classification of vegetables, spices, beverages and also learn about plants that induce hallucination.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. Try and review the notes as quickly as you can. Definitely don't wait to the last minute. Pay attention in class, Dr Rani mentions some things she doesn't give in the note as part of test questions. Most importantly, have an open mind and you'll find how 'plants' can actually be interesting!
