    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I found this class very interesting. It teaches you the foundation of biological life from the molecular level on up. If you are ever fascinated with how the ecosystem works or how even your own body chemistry functions, this class will be a wonder.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about meiosis and mitosis was interesting. The genetics portion gave you a brief introduction into gene therapy, biotechnology, and overall genetic evolution. Also, viruses, bacterium, and micro organisms were fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you do not miss any labs. If you absolutely must miss class, miss a lecture, you can always make up the study time at home. Take good notes or record the lectures. Study the units as you go along, and make sure you understand the material. If you wait till the last minute to cram for the tests/quizzes, you will do very poorly in this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a fascinating adventure of exploring the basis of life and how humans function in the way that we do! If you are not sure which path to take towards a career, I recommend taking this course to expose yourself to the endless options in the science field!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were how life on Earth had forms and continues to transform, evolution, chemical processes of life and its functions, as well as genetics, which is a fascinating new field of study introduced in the past 20 years! I learned how DNA replicates itself and how that relates to heredity, focusing on why we have the traits that we do. I also learned how humans evolved over time with the chemical occurrences that happen in living organisms. This course is the reason I am so passionate about science, I am also going on an intensive animal research field study in Canada for a week where we analyze DNA of organisms! There is an endless list of ideas and concepts you will learn in this course, opening up numerous doors of interest in the science field!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material, take descriptive and VISUAL notes, ask questions!! If you are unsure of how a process works or cannot wrap your mind around the fascinating nature of life, simply ask your professor, they help more than you can imagine!!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Recommend it because he is a very knowledgeable individual and always engaged his students in his teaching.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the biotechnology unit, as well as genetics. I learned about the field of bioinformatics, which was super interesting and could be a possible career choice.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to class and make sure time is set aside for studying and reading on your own time because assignments are not typically given.
