    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of this class is basic knowledge, but it can still be challenging, as they go into more detail about common subject. You will go into the differenct types and forms of rocks, the theory of plate tectonics, a rough history of the world since the beginning and different natural disasters, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis.

    Course highlights:

    I really liked learned about how Plate Tectonics, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis are all connected. The earth is all connected in the way it behaves, and it was cool to see how each event shapes the world, and each country they hit.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A lot of this class is memorization, so I found it helpful to make flash cards with all the vocab terms. Also, make sure you keep onto of the Quizzes, sometimes the due dates can sneak up on you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the work because if you get behind it'll all add up

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Except for the fact that the course ignored the Biblical theory of our Earth's history, I enjoyed the course. There were some interesting facts to learn-especially about weather. I took this class on line.

    Course highlights:

    The one thing I learned that stood out the most is that Earth Science covers many different fields including geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. I really enjoyed discovering that there are different kinds of volcanoes. I did a study to complete the required essay and discovered that earthquakes are becoming more frequent. The number of recorded earthquakes has been climbing for the last 4-5 decades.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Mr. Boggs is a "stickler" to the rules about late work. Unless you have a doctor's excuse, don't expect him to NOT take off points is you submit your work after the deadline. And there is no extra credit work to make up lost points! Be careful about the quizzes and tests! Some of the questions and "correct" answers are ambiguous. Mr. Boggs will take the side of what the "correct" answer is according to the quiz grading. Honestly, I believe this course is best taken in person! I would have had an easier time and my "A" would have come easier if I could ask my questions and get answers right away. There is a lot of reading to do in this course-at least the on line version. If you ,like me, are not a speed reader, pick out the main points in the review sections of the book! For the mid term and final tests, review your quizzes!
