well as in 3 reviews

This was a great course with an engaging and informative presentation of both the scientific information (thanks Dr. Cracraft) as well as the educational insights (thanks Dr. Randle) into not only how to understand but how to teach this complicated information.

The instructors assume you have some science knowledge, so if you do not, you may find some vocabulary and topics are not explained as well as they should be.
