I think that Mel is a pretty chill, laidback person but I can also understand why some people are a little put off by her rather casual teaching style. That being said, the material is not really difficult and much less technically demanding than some of your typical engineering classes in other departments. To add on to that, the textbook in this class is actually really good, so good that you probably don't need to go to lectures.

In my quarter, the midterms were pretty easy such that most people left early, but the final was pretty difficult that not as many people left early (i.e. or if they did, they probably gave up on figuring out how to do some of the problems). I would say that the discrepancy was probably due to the fact that she crammed roughly three weeks of material in the last week of class because she was lecturing so slow in the previous 8-9 weeks. Other than that, I would say that this class was pretty chill and enjoyable and also surprisingly informative (i.e. some of the subject matter could be applicable to your personal financial decisions).

I feel that depending on what specific time of the year you decide to take this class will ultimately impact how well you do in the end. All the assignments were mandatory to get a good grasp of the material being covered in course. You will be tested on subjects and terms that don't ever show up in class but might be in the textbook--I'm not 100% sure since I never opened the book. Summer is fast paced and I know teachers have their agendas to follow but Mel was like a unicorn throughout the whole quarter. TA communication is minimal, extra credit assignments reward the actively contributing students, and a lot of the material gets recycled from past quarters. This (course) is not too bad when you prepare well enough. Some might consider the past assignments a right place to start, and maybe some of those might save you like a (hero). You can thank me later. Have fun!

Environmental economics has to be the one higher elective that will help your GPA in the Econ major. The professor always explained rather well in lectures and her exams were always a step harder than her homework assignments. You will struggle a bit to get the hang of the class and many of the terms from Econ 11 and Econ 41 will pop-up here and there. There is nothing harsh about the class, but you need to make sure that your mathematics and economic theory are at least up-to-date. Take the class and ask questions if you ever need advice on the weekly assignments since you can always get together with a group of people and attack the questions. The group assignment is super easy--I think 1 page about a topic of your choice--and will not take up too much of your time.

The professor is hard to get a hold of because of her extremely tight schedule, but you should navigate around that fact, and I am sure you will get to speak to her at some point in the quarter.
