Student Feedback

I really liked the fact that there weren’t tests every week, and that the models were split up over a couple weeks. I found this setup very helpful!


I felt like there was a good work load overall, and I loved that the weeks were only four days.


This is a great course and I like how it is organized. I am really enjoying science.
