    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Graves clearly knew what she was talking about, and came prepared for each class. Her lessons were comprehensive, and she managed to tie in what we learned to every-day occurrences such as how we manage to sustain our heavy crop consumption via the Haber-Bosch process of nitrogen fixing.

    Course highlights:

    We went through the basics of chemistry first, with a heavy focus on molality (mol/L) in the first portion of the course. The second part was more on the different types of reactions and how to differentiate between them (redox, acid-base, precipitation). Last, we dove deeper into electrons and how they effect the atoms they are affixed to, and we looked at equilibrium equations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of the homework and the practice samples online, as this is where Dr. Graves got a lot of her test questions from. We were allowed to make a 3x5 in index card for each exam (three midterms, one cumulative final exam), so make sure to keep them and study from them after each exam. The final exam was all multiple choice, so be prepared for more concept questions than equations.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Complete all the sapling (online homework) questions and practice before exams. It really helps

    Course highlights:

    Its the basics, but its a lot.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the sapling and make sure you understand the material, she uses what you know and tests your critical thinking ability by using the material in a new way on exams.
