Quarter: Fall 2021
Grade: A+
Dec. 22, 2021

Homework was a lot, but the tests were much easier than homework problems and extra credit was offered on both the midterm and final (I think like 5% of the test grade available). I was nervous about this class from his other reviews on here but he explains everything well and clearly outlines what is what's important to know. only thing that frustrated me about this class was the textbook, it had multiple errors and used weird notation that was often unexplained but was necessary because it was the source of the homework problems.

Aight this man is so insanely kind ugh. I don't know how it'll be off quarantine but we had a week long midterm and final and the problems were honestly quite fair. He was incredibly kind and accommodating and was genuinely happy to see everyone doing well (our midterm average was around 90%). Homework is EXTENSIVE and takes an insane amount of time and is also worth 40% of your grade so you need to put a lot of time into the class. The lecture content is slightly tangential at times with derivations so it reminded me of a physics class where you really have to read the book to understand problem solving, but the good part about that is that the math is quite a bit easier and it's mostly just formula bashing (no derivations on exams!) Book problems are a lot more similar to what you can expect on tests. He's a lot better than most of the other pchem profs so would definitely recommend for a nicer time~

slow and boring lecture. midterms were not that hard. Final was straightforward too. although i hate his class and lecturing style, i would actually recommend him for 110A cause u do little to none calculus (compared to other harder 110a prof like newhauser or valker).
