    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Stock's class is well-organized. His activity sheets are really helpful to understand the course. Also, he always answers every question with full of enthusiasm. However, he usually does not have lectures in the class. I had no problem to understand this course because the activities explain very well.

    Course highlights:

    Kinetics, Equilibrium, Buffers, Solubility, Entropy & Free Energy, Redox reaction, Electrochemistry, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend every class. Do your homework. It is not heavy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Would not recommend it. If I wanted to pay tuition for someone to read the PowerPoints, I could have paid myself. This is not teaching. Will not upload grades because he doesn't see it as his responsibility and believes we shouldn't be worried about the grades. Does not respond to emails in a timely manner.

    Course highlights:

    Be prepared to teach yourself. Uses a book with many mistakes so you aren't able to refer to it for help, just the professor; this stands as an issue because he does not respond to your questions in time. Share the Sapling subscription with someone to split the cost because you won't be using $55 worth.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have any other options to avoid this professor, TAKE IT.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are not a natural born chemist, the professor makes ALL the difference when choosing a chemistry course. Professor Matthews makes even difficult concepts so simple to understand, and is always available for assistance outside of the classroom. Really a fantastic teacher, and made chemistry enjoyable for everyone!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were, of course, lab. It's always the most fun to do hands-on experiments and feel like a real scientist. The lectures were never boring, though, as Professor Matthews has a socratic pedagogy way of teaching, that constantly has you on your toes and answering questions. Bouncing ideas off of the people near you is a daily routine, and it's always something different. Great course!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most difficult part of the course are the examinations. These are pretty standard chem tests, and studying is a MUST. No surprises, though, so as long as you study the book materials and pay attention in class, you should do fine. Professor allows a lot of opportunities for extra credit and such, so the only way you'll fail is if you slack.
