    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Matt is an alright teacher. He has a good sense of humor, but has the ego that goes along with every chemist. It is his way or the highway.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot. Basic chemistry and calculations and conversions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have to take it, take it. If you don't have to take it, don't take it. It's an unnecessary amount of pressure and stress if it isn't required.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great gateway into learning about chemistry. I had no background in it, and still ended up with an A. Lecture usually keened in on several topics in a day, where we then applied what we learned in lab. Keeping up with the weekly homework assignment also maintained an understanding of every topic we learned. Overall, best course I've had yet!

    Course highlights:

    Best things we did in chemistry were the labs and demonstrations. Nothing is more exciting than seeing solid sodium react in water for a nice (controlled) explosion, only ten feet away from you. You learn why reactions like those occur, and how other similar reaction happen, as well as the molecular interactions between elements.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the weekly homework on time, and go to class everyday. Missing one day drops you back far and can make you easily fall behind. Studying varies from person to person, but at least study 4 hours a week for this subject. It's an easy course if you put the work into it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Pete is a very passionate teacher, with youth and vitality to power him through tough material. He is always uplifting and encouraging. He send the most emails I have ever gotten from a teacher, which can be a little overwhelming but shows his dedication to his students and the course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the fundamentals of chemistry, the nitty gritty calculations and theoretical interactions between atoms and molecules. Although it could be a dry course, it also offers insight to modern science and chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes! I never got the textbook, and relied entirely on the lectures for information. Ultimately, that is the most concise and condensed information you can get, and also can be exactly what you expect to be on the exams.
