An interesting series of lessons on environmental impact. The material was well thought out and presented in a way that allowed for quick absorption of the necessary information. The course is full of knowledge about conservation and how we humans interact with the planet. Fair questions on all milestones but had to put some thought into the answers as there are quite a few important topics with specific answers.
by Alexis S. on February 22, 2024
Material was well structured, so much learned, 10/10
by HARRISON M. on February 22, 2024
Final milestone very hard 50 questions use studocu good luck also I want to mention it’s very risky to travel to the global south please be careful out there lots of disease and infection
by Justin T. on February 22, 2024
Hooray, we've triumphed! The grassroots pressure has finally made its way to the highest echelons! It's such a relief that governments, financial powers, and corporations have come together to oversee these social movements. It's reassuring to know we have greater oversight under their watchful eye. Now, if only they could prioritize removing harmful chemicals from our food and water, that would be truly fantastic!
by Maly X. on February 22, 2024
Wording is confusing at times. Unit 4 & 5 were the hardest for me as I got C's on my milestones. Unit 1,2,3 wasn't too bad as I got 80-90s on my milestones. You get to explore the syntax and hands on although you are barely scratching the surface. Overall, I learned a lot and it wasn't too bad for an introduction. I started the Units like this: 4-5-3-1-2. Would I recommend? Sure.

Super easy math class. I haven't taken a math class in over 4 years and easily passed this. The videos were super helpful.
