    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this because the class is similar to your high school chemistry class but in depth about certain subjects. It helps you understand some elements of chemicals that you see and why different things occur with the mixture of different chemicals. This will also show you (almost immediately) if chemistry is a major or something related to it would be a good fit for you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that chemistry is in many aspects of our lives and it will show you the true aspects of being a chemist. I also learned that it is very important to understand that some things aren't going to make sense at times. Some people aren't comfortable when things happen because they do an that there really isn't a solid reason on why it happens. So with this course, you can see how it's different from other subjects of study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure if you do not understand a concept, don't be afraid to ask questions. If you don't ask, they will move on and the concept you don't understand will end up being the majority of your unit test. Make study groups with people in your class so you can work on your weaknesses and help others with your strengths. Lastly, try to come to class a little bit earlier if you want to ask personal questions that you didn't feel comfortable to say out loud. usually, they would be there at most 30 minutes before the class starts which gives you time to receive help on your homework or a lesson from last class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because of the vigorous work and effort it took to get the grade I got in her class. It helped me to maximize the way I managed my study time, the way I complete my work, and the way I thought critically about the subject matter. The class forced me to work extensively harder so as to achieve the results I wanted. I found it very rewarding after-the-fact, and was able to leave with a sense of accomplishment. She teaches in a way that allows you to think for yourself. Rather than just giving us the answer, we had to think outside of the box in order to solve problems and answer our own questions. Such methods as this better prepare us for the test as she helps us to deeply understand the content and critically think about the problems.

    Course highlights:

    An enriching introduction into the topics of stoichiometry, solutions, thermochemistry, acids and bases, introduction to organic chemistry, the structure of the atom, and the set-up of the periodic table. It takes a broad look at the field of chemistry, introducing the basics while I took a dive into the rigorous math and science problems that go hand-in-hand. Mrs. Adams provided great insight into areas that students could not very well comprehend, and tried to understand exactly what each student was asking in order to better formulate an answer. Her tests took questions we were introduced to and twisted them so as to test just how much we know and understand the subject matter. And she graded a little leniently at times.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time very well since it takes much work in order to pass her class. Students must use the various resources given to them so that they get a better understanding of what they are learning and will be able to learn more of what is given to them. Such resources also provide better ways of studying in order to prepare for tests. Be ready to think creatively, and critically, when answering problems on the homework, in class, and on tests. Ask questions, stay after class, visit her in her office hours, or go to tutoring when you are not understanding anything that she is teaching. Participation is very important since it allows you to fully engage yourself when discussing the different chapters and topics.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course because the teaching style was confusing at times and the lessons were very rushed. Compared to the lab class, we were several units ahead and only had a brief understanding of the previous chapter's material. The teacher had to give extra credit and drop grades for the majority of the students to pass.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that I learned best from the assignments given to us. We got several chapters of online homework to do per month that followed the textbook. The website gave explanations of problems and equations that weren't given in class that helped with understanding the subjects. Quizzes allowed two submissions and several attempts per question, and regular assignments showed step by step solutions to each question.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find any video on youtube, or use khan academy as your main study tool. Start studying chapters before you reach them in class, because the teacher usually messes up an explanation and you have to it out on your own. This course follows high school chemistry closely, so if you have any notes from that class, keep them and study them alongside the course.
