Quarter Taken: Fall 2020

This class started out super stressful but by the end of the quarter, it was way better. The content started out pretty easy but the first midterm was really hard and she kept telling us she wasn't gonna curve at all. By the time of the midterm, she had put out her own course survey and actually listened to it really well. She ended up not only offering 10 points of extra credit if you filled out the end of course survey but also heavily curved the class! Overall she is pretty nice but her lectures aren't the clearest.
Overall description of the class: Her entire lecture is powerpoints we were pretty sure she stole from the textbook and just explained. The grading is based on HW(10%), 2 quizzes(20%), a midterm(30%), and a final (40%). The homework is all from the textbook and some of the quiz and midterm questions also were but she did write some of her own to spice things up. I never went to the discussion so Im not sure how helpful it was but they also posted the review questions and solutions to everything on CCLE.

Just as a preface, I took this class completely online due to COVID-19.

Professor He was a fantastic professor. She was very clear, albeit a bit fast, and was more than receptive to student feedback as the course went on. The only significant drawback I encountered with this course was the approach to test-taking. For me personally, I did not perform very well on the tests due to the limited time allowed for lengthy tests. Other students performed just fine, so this was definitely a personal issue, but I still think it is important to know when deciding on a class/professor. Overall, I would absolutely take another class with Professor He. Though the tests didn't come very easily to me, I genuinely felt like she cared about my understanding of the material and that I am leaving this course having learned something.
