Winter 2021 - Great professor. Logistics are still being worked out but they’re definitely better than before. Definitely expect things to be different logistics-wise when you take it. Lectures were very clear and engaging. They were podcasted and slides were released, but it’s still very worth it to go to lecture. She’s probably the best lecturer in the ChemE department, and even better at lecturing than the North Campus Professors. Grading was definitely generous. Here’s the breakdown for my year (the COVID year): 3% Surveys, free points (3 surveys total) 7% Feedback Quizzes (Free points, after lectures). Lowest 4 dropped. 10% Homework, free points. Lowest is dropped. 60% Exams. 4 exams in lieu of a Midterm and Final. Lowest one is dropped. 20% Tutorials. Exams were still difficult, but definitely more straightforward compared to previous quarters. There was a timed conceptual section and an untimed free response section. They were very fair. What I liked best was that we were tested on our knowledge of Heat Transfer, not on our ability to solve PDEs. The tutorial was a group project where we solved an example problem to explain a concept. Unlike previous quarters, it was NOT free points. Some people got dinged pretty hard on it. Fortunately, we could redo it and get up to half of the points we missed. WARNING: There's a really good grade distribution for Winter 2021. Take it with a grain of salt. That quarter, we were allowed to P/NP major classes, so many students did exactly that, which undoubtedly skewed the grade distribution towards the A range.
