All Ratings and Reviews for Chelsea Robinson
This class was relatively interesting and easy with asynchronous lectures. The midterm and final were very memorization-based and easy. The labs also were very quick and graded very leniently and there was a short and easy species report final. Do the study guide though as that is really important to do well on the midterm and final! Overall would recommend this class to anyone for an easy science lab GE
Would definitely recommend this class as an easy GE. Biodiversity is not a topic that is super interesting, but the content is straightforward and Prof. Robinson is super engaging. She does a great job of explaining the content and is super passionate about her work.
The work overall was light. Lectures were asynchronous and two lectures were posted each week, about 1 hour each. Besides the lab, there is no other work and buying/reading the textbook is NOT needed. Everything you need to know comes directly from her lectures. Each lab was assigned during the lab section and due every Sunday. The lab assignments were fairly simple and didn't take long to complete, but TAs were readily available if you have any questions.
The midterm and final were very easy if you know the material. Make sure you fill out and study the study guide, because pretty much all the questions were taken from the study guide.
Took GEOG 2 for the science GE + lab, and overall it was a fairly easy n normal class. It's on biodiversity, so it's very interdisciplinary. You get quick run throughs on the basics of lots of other studies. Not too difficult, so long as you listen to her lectures.
Professor uploaded her lectures, so it was all remote and asynchronous. I had Monica as my TA, and all I can say is GET HER. She is super sweet and understanding, and you have plenty of time to do labs with her and finish them on the day of assignment.
Prof also gave study guides which were VERY helpful. You can tell which questions on the guide are gonna be on the exam.
