Does a great job of explaining things in class and makes sure the experiments are easy to do. That being said she grades pretty hard

Comment:
Class is hard because she doesn't explain material well. She was sick during the semester and might be part of reason. Exams very unorganized as she made at least 5 corrections per exam (3 and the final). Notes online but not updated quickly. If you miss class and try to find out what you missed, she'll just say it'll be up online soon.

WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD! DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS! She constantly cancelled class and wouldn't show up and had subs put in dvds that weren't ever on the tests. Then the material that was on the test was stuff that we didn't learn. She's extremely unhelpful and going in for office hours was a waste of time. She's completely worthless.

This class was my easiest i took in college. Her tests are easier than any physics test that was taken in high school. Only downside is you kind of need to have prior physics knowledge to excel because she goes rather quickly through new material.

This has been the easiest class I have taken at college. If you took physics in high school and understand simple newtonian mechanics, this will be easy for you. She is extremely boring and I fell asleep/listened to music many times, but attendance is advisable as there are a lot of quick 5 point assignments in class.

HORRIBLE WOMAN! She rambles and says absolutely nothing worth writing down. I WAS a straight A student, and an avid note taker. Her lectures were impossible to take notes on, and I maybe took 3 pages of "quality" notes the entire semester. I was forced to read the book and complete practice problems in order to study for exams. She is so obnoxious.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROF. YOU WILL REGRET IT. Then you will end up posting how much you hated it here. I'd rather light myself on fire than take her again.

I absolutely hate this teacher. I never skipped class, had an A all semester, and ended up with a C on my report card! I have a feeling she just throws out grades. She ruined my GPA and I will never forget it.

Lab and class are an easy A. Basically a repeat of high school and a paper about global warming (which is recyclable throughout your academic career haha). Looks like a turtle. Show up to class and you'll earn the Miami credit.

This is a bad class. I didn't open my textbook all semester, it's not really necessary for the class. She doesn't really teach you anything, she just rambles. She's very liberal, and if you disagree with her, you're wrong. There is a lot of group work in this class. Do not take this class.

Despite genuinely trying in her class and seeking help, I still feel that I could have done better if she had been a) more willing to help b) aware that there were students who already understood what was going on and those were the only students she was teaching for.

Take this class for an easy A, but beware, she is really annoying. Anybody could teach themselves the material without going to class (its a joke, we learned more in high school physics), but you have to go because she has in class work thats part of your grade. I hated going to class, just because she is so annoying.

she's really not that bad! she didn't force any view on us but had us watch several videos on global warming and alternative fuel which were just stating facts (they might have been bias but they matched my views) she also is flexible with changing the schedule and will sometimes give extensions on assignments (and also has extra credit!)

If you want to boost your GPA take this class, the actual physics is insanely easy, easier than what I took junior year in HS! However, the only paper you have to do is graded rough because she is extremely liberal and you're best off just taking her side even if you're a red blooded conservative like myself... still recommend the class for easy A
