Just a guess, maybe your code is correct, but you added it at the top of the css sheet? There is another declaration later on:

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

that will overwrite your declaration (due to the cascading nature of css). If you add the following code at the end, it will work.

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) { 
h1 { font-size: 2.5em; } 
}

yes I did add it at the top of the css, and that makes sense! thank you very much!

add this to the bottom of your code...

@media (min-width: 480px) {
  h1 {
    font-size: 2.5em;
  }
}

@media (min-width: 660px) {
  h2 {
    font-size: 1.75em;
  }
}

the reason why is the @media signals a breakpoint... and following that you set the parameter... and then the code you place inside the {} is the code that will run while the parameter is true, hope this helps :)
