Quarter: Fall 2021
Grade: A-
Dec. 16, 2021

There's not really a point reviewing this class because you have to take it, but just wanted to give a heads up of what to expect. First off, this class is run by the T.A., Ali, and without him you would be lost because Dr. Cooper is not very helpful and would frequently mumble his sentences when doing his presentations. Also, if you're in a morning section, expect Dr. Cooper to be 15-30 minutes late and then expect to be rushed to end on time so the next lab can start. We ended up cutting some of our labs short/having data handed to us because of this.

We turned in 8 50 point labs, 3 reports and 5 worksheets. The first lab that was graded was our Week 3 report during Week 6 because we needed feedback before turning in our next lab report. After that, we only got a grade for the second lab report (very delayed again) and Ali graded one of the worksheets. Deadlines for lab due dates were frequently extended due to delays in grading. Those 3 grades are the only grades we ever knew the whole quarter, so when they gave us a final grade without us seeing the rest, it was kind of jarring. We were unable to see any feedback/grades for 5 of the reports we turned in this quarter which made this class feel almost nonexistent. The reports are also time consuming for a 3 unit class and it would've been nice to know if we were on the right track throughout the quarter.

COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
March 30, 2021

This class has A LOT of work even through Zoom. The lab writeups aren't too difficult since you don't have to physically do anything however, the grading is pretty strict and even through office hours some portions of the lab questions won't be answered by the professor. For a couple simple mistakes or not mentioning a small detail such as "through a pulley system for the muscles" can mark -1 points/50. The presentation wasn't too bad and thus did the best and you need to work on it as a final project instead of written one.

Grading is as follows: 6 Labs worth 50 points with a presentation and outline writeup worth 100 points for a total of 400 points. No curve.

Took LS2. Average as a professor, but completely unprofessional. Agreed to write a letter of rec for a scholarship, confirmed that he was working on it, then never submitted it. No explanation given nor any suggestion that I ask another professor.

Grade: N/A
March 16, 2011

The lab writeups are very VERY time consuming. But there aren't any exams, so as far as difficulty it balances out to a medium difficulty class (not as hard as 153L perhaps). Office hours are very useful for improving your performance on the assignments. I would take this class after taking the 111 series, given how time consuming the write-ups.
