I don't recommend this professor. He talks the whole time in class. Very boring and hold grudges against you. Class consists of two exams in which are NOT multiple choice. Also a 15-20 minute presentation on a topic as well as a 2,000 word esssy.

I took this class hoping for an easy GE class, but it turned into the most challenging course of the semester because of this professor. He very very rude and holds grudges.

If you are looking for an easy GE I would suggest this class. I did not learn a lot. You can buy the book but honestly if you just take notes from his lecture you will be fine. His test are written, but he gives A LOT of partial credit. A 8 page paper and 15 minute presentation, but you have all semester.

He was a good teacher and if you like to discuss, you'll do well. Tests (written) are based off lecture, the textbook is just backup. The last test was based entirely off student lectures, make sure you choose a good term paper topic and take notes on what he highlights after a speaker. He makes science easy.

I found this class to be ok. There is no homework, all you have to do is go to class and take really good notes. He talks the whole hour so it might be boring for some. Tests are not mult choice but they aren't as hard as it sounds. The term paper is very time consuming and he doesn't make you turn it in in portions so its easy to procrastinate. :/

If you pay attention to lecture and take good notes you should be fine. Tests are not multiple choice which can be challenging. I found his class to be very interesting just make sure you stay on top of studying. There is only 1 paper and a presentation. He takes roll randomly so its mandatory to come to class. Just come to class and youll be fine.

I loved this class. Ingraham is a really great professor for somebody who is scientifically minded. It's easy if you go to class every time. The term paper is 2000 words and you present. The topics are interesting, and it's not as bad as it sounds.

This class is called "Science & Nonsense" but what I got out of it was a bunch of nonsense. He's hard to understand, and contradicts himself too much. Sounds like he makes 90% of his info up. Don't take this class unless you want a B for a GE class that shouldn't even exist..

No book, so attendance is pretty much mandatory...unless you want to fail. If you attend class everytime, you won't really need to study. Just review notes. Tests may be challenging to some though. The only time-consuming thing is the term paper. Make sure to ask questions for clarity on topic and what he wants.

Attend every session, because he doesn't have a Blackboard course and WILL take attendance randomly (participation is 10% of the grade). I missed one class, didn't copy the notes for one session, and ended up getting a C on his second exam (I got a 100% on the first one). His class was really interesting though--lots of logical thinking.

attendance is a plus including taking notes in every class session. you have to pay attention in class or else you'll fail including attending class as well. if you don't attend class, you'll fail. also no scantron needed but written test only. if you're not good at written test, i suggest you not to take this class.

Professor Ingram is a very knowledgeable teacher. Pretty much what he talks about in class will be on the tests. You HAVE to come to class to get the full lecture and comprehension of the message. His office hours are flexible and he always stays after class if you need help.Tests are challenging and definitely not scantron.

His class isn't really very hard, but whenever you email him for questions or you need to talk to him, he replies back with very short answers that never really explain what he wants you to do. It's frustrating. The tests are kind of difficult if you don't study. Not much is expected of you. Just come, listen and learn.

Very interesting class. Tests(3) are written responses, be direct, not just rambling on hoping you might be right, there is a term paper and a presentation on a topic. Attendance is important, especially in the first 2 months. He is a good instructor and can make bigfoot believers look a bit ridiculous. Loch Ness monster and alien believers BEWARE.

Fantastic teacher. He is very helpful in every subject and topic. Everything he teaches is used for the tests, term paper, and final. Make sure you pay attention. I do not regret at all taking this class.

Kinda boring and really stubborn, but usually he is right. You will be lost at first, and all of the sudden it will all click about week 3. But if you think this class is about investigating Big Foot and Aliens then you are mistaken. It's all about disproving them and anyone who believes different is ridiculed rightfully so (take class and see why)

This class is amazing! I learned more in this class than all my other classes combined! Class consists of 3 tests, one term paper & presentation. Ingraham is very knowledgeable in his field and teaches you a great deal of information. Grades tests easy! Attendance is not mandatory, but I can't see why you wouldn't want to come to class! Recommend!

This has to be my favorite class ever. I joined his class and instantly found it extermely intresting. The tests are supper easy and he does the best at making sure you understand the Curriculum and everthing he writes on the board will most likely be on the test. I recommend this class!!

Clear, informative, and involves classroom participation (not mandatory). DEFINITELY take notes though, and show up to class for lectures, as all of that is on the tests and helps with the final essay. Don't buy the book, we never use it. Overall, awesome teacher!
