    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because Susan Marx is eager to answer any questions raised during lecture. She responds quickly, and refuses to move on until you assure her that you understood her explanation. The quizzes in class are somewhat difficult, but fair because nothing will appear on them that the professor hasn't already covered in class. Her office hours are also very helpful. I came into this class completely the opposite of computer literate, but I can say that this course helped me gain a rudimentary understanding of my own computer and how it functions.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduces students to coding languages including hypertext markup language, Python, and JavaScript. In Lab, students learn how to code in HTML to create their own website. From this website, you are able to post the remainder of the projects and it is nice to always be able to look back and see the work you accomplished while in this course. It is nice to gain knowledge about the technology we use so frequently, yet often times know so little about. You will not leave this course without gaining some knowledge that you can apply to your use of technology in the future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend studying for the in class quizzes more in detail, because they do focus on specific facts as opposed to overarching ideas. I would also advice taking photos of the in class clicker quiz slides, so you have the ability to look back at them and practice them in preparation for the midterm and final. Don't be hesitant to take this course if you do not have a significant background in coding, because TAs are extremely helpful in Labs and will make sure you understand your mistake before you move on to the next step. Homework assignment instructions can be confusing at times, so I would recommend doing homework during the TA study hours which will be posted at the beginning of the course online.

    Great professor, she really cares about her students.

    Advice for students:

    Study a little everyday so it won't all be left for the night before exam. Also ask for help if you need it. The TAs aee great.
