Professor Reviews in CHEM 111


  • Class rating 1/5
    Deliberately imprecise, given to wild chemistry tangents.... forces you to study all materials just in case. Few A's are given, you will work for it. Lab is nice. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    His grading seems rational when he describes it in the first week, but he only awards one A and grades down from there on tests. Avoid at all costs, unless your gpa doesn't matter to you. He would be cool to hang out with though, if he liked people. But he doesn't. If you got lucky and could snag a beer with him it would be a great conversation. ...Continue reading

    Although it takes a lot of effort to get a good grade in her class, if you put in the work, it'll definitely pay off. She used LaunchPad for every assignment but never anything else. Her exams were based off of the lectures and podcasts only. She gave extra credit for attendance on random days and was willing to help you if you ever needed it. ...Continue reading

    Amazing professor! His tests are kind of difficult but if you do the practice exams, you will do good. I believe he curves the class at the end. Chemistry is a pretty hard class but he made it easier and more interesting. I would recommend his class! ...Continue reading

    he is an excellent lecturer, very informative and he tries to keep the lectures intresting. Unlike a lot of profs he's willing to spend time with you one on one until you understand what's going on. Don't make the mistake of thinking this class is a breeze though cuz he's got good ratings. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    He is SO good at explaining the material. He has this amazing ability to make any stupid question seem like it was a good one, when most of the other students just want to say, God that kid is a retard! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Extremely personable. Funny, and makes Chemistry interesting with all the demonstrations he does. As with any Chemistry class you can't goof off, but Wickenheiser is an excellent professor. Highly recommended! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Such a nice guy, and loves contact with students. He would sometimes have to go back and correct mistakes he made, but it was never detrimental to my understanding of the problem. He was very kind outside of class and made chemistry enjoyable. I'm not sure why, but he reminds me of a Yooper Carl Sagan. You can tell he likes his job and wants the best for his students. He's very willing to answer any questions that you have and encourages students to ask them! ...Continue reading

    Very helpful and informative Professor. He remembers names well and really wants his students to do well in class. He's funny, has cute personality, and knows a lot about chemistry. The material itself isn't hard to comprehend, but the class is still kickin my ass! The tests are difficult and worth like a million points. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Boring class but he explains everything really well. Whether on discussion or office time this guy will definitly clear up most questions for you. Takes his teaching to heart and really cares how you do as a student. However tests are difficult. .know concepts and the work involved! Some tests use more of one or the other. he is sometimes disorganized and loses his train of thought, but he's human and he definitely doesn't have any of that high-horse-talk-over-your-head-make-you-feel-stupid crap you see in other profs. ...Continue reading

    Great prof. Knows what he is talking about. This guy really cares about his students and helping them understand the topics covered. He makes getting up for a nine o'clock class on a friday worth it. The experiments and little stories are great. The class isn't easy though, you need to study and keep up. He's a really nice guy, who really cares about teaching. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    he's a good prof. oddly resembles mr. bean :) As long as you pay attention, read, and make an effort in the class you will do fine! I was scared going into this because I hate Chemistry, but he made me learn to love it. This isn't a class that you can just sleep through, but it isn't totally stressful either. ...Continue reading

    He is a awesome guy, the class is semi-hard. At times, he would have to correct mistakes he made, which could be confusing to some but is not detrimental to his clarity. Overall, he is a great guy and worth having as a teacher. I'm not sure why, but he reminds me of a Yooper Carl Sagan. A nice guy. I recommend taking any class with him. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    He is a great prof. who loves to teach, you can tell just by listening to his lectures. Hes nice, hes smart, he really understands questions asked and answers them really well. He does experiments every friday in the lecture hall and thats always a fun last 10 minutes of class before the weekend. I totally recommend any class with him! GREAT guy and GREAT teacher! But he runs through material really fast, not with a lot of clarity, which i found hard since I'm not a chem major. Great guy, very smart, genuine and considerate. Although his quizzes are very hard because he throws loops at you. if your a freshman i recommend Getman for chem 111 ...Continue reading
