    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Wyczalkowski was a great professor, she is very passionate about what she teaches. I found the course very interesting and insightful.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Wyczalkowski talked a lot about current events, which I liked.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of homework associated with this class, which is not difficult. There are also three exams in this class, but they are mostly composed of previous homework questions. You do need to show up to class because sometimes she gives in-class assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Wyczalkowski is very passionate about the course, and always tries to encourage the class to do the outside projects. She also makes interactive powerpoint presentations that use "common man" language!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to figure out which direction I was walking at night by finding the big dipper to find Polaris. I also learned how black holes really work and how they are made.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the Blackboard website! She makes modules that affect your grade with a bunch of mini quizzes.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    She's an easy teacher who gives extra credit a lot especially on tests. Lectures can be boring because she reads off her slides and posts them later to Blackboard. However, she is extremely knowledgeable in astrophysics to the point where she would rather you understand and comprehend than just memorize which is the opposite of what most of us college students tend to do. Otherwise, she is extremely friendly and if you put in the time to do homework, you should do fine and earn an easy A or A+.

    Course highlights:

    Pretty much learned about different stars and constellations. Learned about planets in our solar system as well as the sun. Explored other dimensions of the universe as well like black holes and supernovas and dwarf planets.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the homework and the activities. They count as 20 percent of the grade. Honestly, no need to read the textbook since she creates and reads her own slides. Simply go over homework and the slides and you should nail the exams.
