Winter 2021 - Oh my was this class easy. No tests, quizzes, exams. Just lecture notes that you can copy off the slides, chapter reading notes, a weekly lab assignment, 3 "lecture assignments", and a final video project. The lecture assignments were super easy, which involved either taking notes on a video, or answering a few questions from a large list such as definitions or converting from Celsius to Fahrenheit. This class required very minimal effort and is the easiest A I have gotten since middle school. Do anything you can to take this class.
i took her Fiatlux course ESS 19 last quarter and I have to say that it was a very enjoyable class. I definitely have to disagree with some of the reviews here. Prof. Tripati is very approachable and if you are having problems understanding anything in the course she is more than happy to help! Some people here seem to have painted her as a monster but she really isn't! I would recommend this course for freshmen who may be thinking of taking it next year. There was a paper due at the end of the quarter but it could be about any topic that was covered in the course or even one in which you are very interested to write about.
