    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Kare is a dedicated teacher who has vast past work experience. I believe he has many connections within the chemical engineering and thus can easily teach the material given within class. He is attentive, thought-provoking, and most importantly a hard working professor that dedicates his time to him future generations by providing them the basis of chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    There were many highlights to this course, first and foremost is that the labs provided me with in-depth explanations of how atoms work. Professor Kare allowed us to test our theories in order to challenge us to give appropriate answers to what we seek. To put what I learned on perspective, I learned from stoichiometry to molarity to ions to the properties of each element to even learning how structures form within molecules.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would consider doing the online homework sooner than required because the questions can be strenuous taking a lot of time. However, I would not rush these assignments because they are vital to you learning the material for the test. Lastly, remember to check your sig. figs. and your units. These sort of bit me in the butt sometimes.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't exactly recommend this professor unless you're an independent study type student. Chemistry can be fun. I used Tyler Dewitt videos online to help me better understand the material, and I walked away with a B.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how chemicals bond to each other, and the type of bonds they have. I also learned about chemical reactions when certain chemicals are combined. The labs were fun, with hands on experiments.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be ready to study for this course. Chemistry is not something you take in very easily. Lots of studying, reading and of course, Tyler Dewitt helps a lot! Of course if the course does not apply to your degree, a little kissing up doesn't hurt.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I find science to be incredibly fascinating, and as a biology major, I strongly advocate students to take biology and chemistry for majors, even if they are not pursuing a career in either field. This is because classes like these provide unlimited expansion of knowledge. I have gained an honorable amount of lab experience while taking this course, and I highly suggest it.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting portion of the course was obviously the lab opportunities. I estimated placements of electrons using VSEPR theory, validated the gas laws, and observed disparate light frequency levels. I gained hands-on experience, which further aided my understanding of the course material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only piece of advice I wish to give to students is that it is vital to stay on top of your work. This is the kind of class where one cannot miss a single day of lecture, as it is very fast-paced and contains in depth material. The labs may require some serious effort, but I highly suggested to have fun in doing them.
