    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While I realize General Chemistry is not at all an easy grade nor is it necessarily fun, I would recommend taking the course because I is important, and if nothing else very interesting. General Chemistry gives you an understanding of why some things are, such as why soda is better cold or why an aerosol can has the potential to be extremely dangerous. There are many other practical applications for chemistry, many of which are extremely interesting. Dr. Tro is an amazing professor who uses multiple different platforms to teach, and takes time to actually teachh the material in a way that is able to be understood. He takes interest in your learning and does everything he can to make sure that you understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course would have to be the practical skills I have learned. I have become a better problem solver in that even if I don't quite understand what a question is asking I am still able to get to an endpoint with the information I am given when I start trying to fit the information together. I have gained a greater appreciation for Chemistry, as much of Biology has roots in Chemical principles, and chemistry helps answer questions you have, but have never thought to ask. I will forget things like formulas, but I will not forget the basic problem solving skills or the curiosity and delight from answering this curiosity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are looking to take this course you will really need to put effort into it. Unless chemistry comes really easy for you the class will be challenging. I found myself, especially for the final forgetting things that I once was able to do easily. A good portion of the class is challenging, but if time is spent the class can be conquered. Take Mastering Chemistry before quizzes, go to the help if you need it, and don't be afraid to ask questions. In doing these you and actually studying, you should be alright.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hill (her name preference) has a deep love for chemistry, which shows when she is teaching the material to her students. She loves it when you ask questions, and is very helpful in response. She is always available for office hours; she wants to make sure everyone understands the information she gives in lecture. She is also very nice.

    Course highlights:

    A big highlight of this course was her availability for her students. I've gone to her office hours the most, this semester, out of all the professors I had. She is very helpful in explaining certain concepts in different ways to make sure you fully understand it. I also like how she addresses applications of her lessons to the real world before jumping into the chapter itself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you try to attend every class because she won't provide the powerpoint notes for you; you would have to get the notes from a student in the class. Also, make sure you write everything down she offers on the powerpoint slides. Though it's tedious to write to down every example given, it's very helpful when studying for the tests.
