    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an intro to Chemistry Course which is simple if having past experience in chemistry. I wouldn't take Nyman again, but other professors seem to teach the course better

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I learned a broad understanding of chemistry topics, such as the periodic table and trends, energy, and basic stoichiometry

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the course only if required.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    For me this class is required and as a whole the class isn't bad at all, however if you're looking to take this class I would suggest getting a professor other than Nyman, especially if you haven't had a chem class before. She is very sporadic and often makes mistakes when giving notes or examples which can get confusing as they add up. However, if you have taken a chemistry class already you shouldn't struggle too much because 231 is general chemistry and is mostly a review of what has happened in high school -- lots of stoichiometry.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this class are pretty few for me, as most of the class consists of stoichiometry and the conversion of units a main highlight is that it's not very difficult. Because I already understood unit conversion and how to use formulas that was a big plus.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study stoichiometry and unit conversion, after a while this shouldn't be too bad. Memorizing common values from the periodic table can really help speed up your work. Homework is due every Friday at 5 and I suggest doing it the day before because assignments normally take 2-3 hours. When in lab make sure to write down EVERYTHING that happens, it will make your TA happy and you will get a better grade. Be in depth with your lab planning and conclusions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    He make the course easy for the students to understand. He does not rush so it is easy to ask questions. Also he is an easy person to talk to. In general he makes the course really fun for students.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I did not only learn how to work on course problems, but I also learned how to work with people. The way the course is set up allows us to works in groups of four to six so I got to communicate with other students and they helped me understand the things I would not understand if I was working alone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend this course, but when taking it, you have to stay on top of it, you have study more than you usually would. when studying do the equations, and the problems over and over, because that is the only way you could succeed.
