Bio 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

I got an A in this class based on effort. Not mandatory to go to class, only the first couple of class sessions yes. This class is unique in the way it is designed, but extremely easy once u get used to it. I honestly got weeks ahead because this class allows it. That way you can focus on your other classes. Get a team of about 5-6 ppl HELPS A LOT!

Bio 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Yeah, it's a heavy workload for a 100 level class, but it's easy stuff. She even says you only have to show up only a few days during the semester. Most of the class can be done online. She's nice, laid back, and is clear on what she wants. I honestly couldn't tell you why she has had bad reviews in the past. I had no problems with her class.

BIO 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is a fairly easy class. All you have to do is read and study the text she provides in modules, manage your time well and whenever you have a problem apply rule #1 ASK. I have to admit it was a little bit confusing in the beginning, but even if you don't ask after a while you'll figure it out on your own. So, all depends on you.

Bio 100-003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A-

This class is based on how you like to work (and what aspects of science you like). Rachel is a great professor..helps out whenever you need it or ask for it. The class is designed for you to learn and acquire life skills such as time management. Just prepare yourself ahead of time, which is hard for college students. But u have to if u wanna pass.

BIO 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Amazing teacher who creates a student centered class. She will not let you fail if you try and makes sure that you are set up for success. Perfect class for people who don't like science.

BIO 100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The class was an easy requirement, but it's pretty useless to pay money to have to Google all the right answers (which she herself recommends). Her first rule was to ask questions yet she was rude every time I had to ask. She admits to not being interested in teaching this course. An easy class since you choose your project assignments.

BIO 100 Taken for Credit:No Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B-

She is very convenient with attending class. There are weekly quizzes. You have 2 attempts to take them. Pretty easy. I was not a fan of the group project. Which she turned everyones group project into the final which took me forever because it was like an exhibit but you are allowed to work together.

She is a great person. This class is designed for you to do what suits your skills and ethics. Do the easy assignments, which I did. People tend to make this class harder than it really needs to be. If you organize yourself weekly, as I did, you can actually get ahead and finish out the class strong and not wait till the end to complain. PREPARED!

BIO 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

attending class is not mandatory but you do receive points just for showing up. she posts everything online which is helpful. if you're bad with deadlines, do not take this class. students choose all of the assignments they want to do. online quizzes once a week that require google most of the time. she is a great person but not the best professor.
