Class was easy up until the final. Many of the questions in the final weren't relevant to the coursework whatsoever. There was a question that asked how the a bridge was knocked down, and the answer was wind... wind. like are you kidding me? We learn about tides, gravitational forces, extremophiles and he asks me a question about how a bridge was destroyed, and the answer somehow was wind when we never covered wind in the lecture slides. If you are going to ask random questions might as well ask when Napoleon invaded the Russian empire, at least that's relevant to the world.

Personally, I wasn't very interested in astronomy, but if I had to learn in from someone, I'm glad it was from Margot. His lectures are extremely organized and clear-cut, posted the night before so you can print them out. There is textbook reading, but its not too bad. The first half of the class is more reading-intensive but it lessens as time goes by. Grading is divided into quizzes, homework, midterm, and final. You get to drop you 2 lowest quiz scores and 2 lowest homework assignments, so an A in the class is definitely attainable. Overall, Margot is a fair professor, who's clearly passionate about astronomy and tries to help all his students understand the subject well.
