EASY A. This class is designed for your success. It is so simple to do well.
Grade Distribution: A+: 33
A: 8
A-: 5
B+: 7
B: 4
B-: 1
The actual work for this class is a bit tedious and annoying, but work is only required for 7 weeks. You can choose which prompts you want to write or skip a report as long as you write 7. If you do more than 7, your highest graded reports are the ones selected for your grade. Even if you do not do well on reports, you can still get an A. The professor offers so many bonus opportunities and many of them are for completion. ADDITIONALLY, the other half of the class is on a gaming platform. Some games give you points solely for completion, while others give points based on performance. The secret to success is play every game. Your performance will determine what percentile of the class you are in and that determines the grade boost at the end of the quarter. Everyone wins in the end! Take this class because the professor is the kindest professor I have had and the TAs are great too!

This was by far the most pointless class I’ve taken at UCLA. Pretty much one of the worst online classes I’ve ever taken (out of about 20). I did not learn a single thing – I may actually be dumber for taking it! BUT – I got an A+, without much effort, and without going to any lectures. SO if you want an easy A with just a little bit of effort go for it – if you actually want to learn something – stay away.

For my quarter Professor Lohmann structured it as an online class. She makes taking an online class a bit less scary because she is very detailed and attentive to any questions her students may have. There is quite a bit of reading because you must reference articles in your weekly data reports. You ought to keep up with homework as well. Pay attention to all of the emails and announcements she sends out.

I highly suggest this class to anybody who has a busy/sporadic schedule because the class allows you do finish assignments on your own time.

Professor Lohmann is a very passionate professor who really cares about her subject material. She sometimes talks a little fast and goes on tangents, but she's able to relate everything back to what she's teaching. She's really knowledgeable about climate change and talking about shifting data trends.

She's also incredibly sweet and really into hearing from her students, so it's very easy to ask questions or discuss your opinions with her! The work is manageable, but you need to put effort into it. This is a professor who will help you if you ask, and wants you to succeed, so take advantage of it.

She is hands down one of the best professors I've taken at UCLA, highly recommend her as a professor.

I took this class in the summer and we had one 3 page paper due each week and we did online "games" which took like 10mins. Her lectures are interesting but not very useful for the papers or anything. The TA's grade the paper based on a simple rubric and you can ask for a regrade. If you do well online it replaces a bad paper grade and there's an optional paper that will replace the lowest paper grade. She is super nice, the class just isn't that straightforward.
