    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you had fun in earth science in high school, this is ten times that. Learning fun facts and going in depth on geology opens doors unexpected. Geology was not my first choice for science credit, but it is very interesting and I notice when I watch movies that have geologic structures we have discussed in lecture that I am able to identify them easily and it really makes me feel educated and makes it so I have another way of communicating and connecting with others.

    Course highlights:

    It was fun going on field trips and learning about the geology of Idaho first hand. Dr. Matson makes lecture fun by keeping the students engaged and showing lots of places on google maps.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When going through this course it is vital to show up to lecture- most of the notes or given via whiteboard, not powerpoint. Also, always go to lab, it may seem like a lot of time to put into a course you may not be entirely committed to, but it is worth it for the grade. Lastly, when reading the text for online reading quizzes, ACTUALLY READ THE TEXT, and take good notes. This will help you understand what is being said in lecture and help labs go more smoothly.
