    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this course because the class layout is very conducive to learning and the grading distribution is fair. He is a very wonderful person and great teacher! He really cares about his students and will go the extra mile to help them.

    Course highlights:

    By the end of this course, you will know how to read and understand the periodic table in depth. There is a lot of math in this course so be prepared to use that college algebra knowledge. You also learn about chemical reactions and how to draw information from certain formulas. It's very conceptual and math based!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go through the book! Reading the book in preparation for the lecture is very beneficial. Also, make sure you practice the problems in the book multiple times so you start develop muscle memory. The final exam is timed and very difficult due to the large accumulation of information. If you've practiced the problems in the book numerous times, you'll be well equipt for the test.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you get to learn the basics of chemistry. This course is foundational in chemistry!

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed talking about thermodynamics, especially the specific heat capacities of different substances. It was amazing to see how different substances let off different amounts of heat, even after being heated to the same temperature. I also loved learning about concentrations of solutions and how important specific molarities are. We had a few incredible conversations about astro-chemistry and why comets appear to be burning up when really its just the ice sublimating. All throughout the course we built upon the basic concept of stoichiometry. I loved building my skills with stoichiometry as the course became more advanced in material.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give is to meet regular with a study group in this class, see a tutor is possible. Also read through the textbook thoroughly, it is highly important in understanding essential concepts.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course and this teacher because it is a simple course, not too complex, it is smaller, which, by definition allows for more professor-student feedback, and, because of the younger age of the professor, the class seemed more lively and energetic.

    Course highlights:

    I remember this class as being more of an intercollegiate learning experience--depending on and working with others to discover solutions. I learned the importance of studying material thoroughly and completing all assignments, so that I could be a contributor to my group and other students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give would be to do what I did, in the sense of, learning the material and participating with others to accomplish assignments. Doing this will help yourself avoid simple errors, discover solutions from others' perspectives, and build relationships (which always tends to make courses more fun for everyone). Thoroughly learning important and relevant material, and occasionally meeting with the professor when necessary, along with working with others, will help to make this course effective and successful.
