    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She goes over the material quickly and barely teaches it. She throws up a PowerPoint and expects you to know what it means.

    Course highlights:

    How to study efficiently! It is a key to not failing this class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study,study! Don't get discouraged.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it offers a challenge to those who are required to take Chemistry as well as those who desire to take it. It is a class that requires the student to work hard by reading beforehand, completing all class work and homework, and studying diligently for the tests. However, the professor does offer grace because this course is a challenge. For example, all students have two attempts on their homework, opportunities to receive extra credit, and are able to replace their lowest test grade with the grade they received on the cumulative assessment given at the end of the semester.

    Course highlights:

    Relating to Chemistry, I learned about stoichiometry, gas laws, energy, atoms, molecules, and matter. It is a very math-based course which is one of the main reasons why I enjoyed it so much. Pertaining to life, I learned that not everything will come naturally; hard work is required for those who want to succeed. I learned that there is more than one way to solve a problem and sometimes it's important to take a step back to determine the most appropriate approach to take in order to find the solution.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, background knowledge of basic chemistry is necessary. It is a fairly fast paced course, so playing catch up isn't fun. Writing down the step for the various types of problems is helpful because those steps apply to all of the questions that could be asked about that specific topic. Reading the textbook is extremely beneficial before and after the information is gone over in lecture because it allows the student to gain a deeper understanding of the topic. Lastly, repetition is key because if a student can do the same problem over and over again without having to look at their notes, then they will be able to do a similar problem that could appear on the test.
