Elena Rybak-Akimova | CHEM002 - Chemical Principles | Chemistry2006-05-14

Review:
Professor Rybak-Akimova was an enthusiastic lecturer and tried to make chemistry as interesting as possible (as hard as that may be). She even performed a couple of experiments in class. She did clarify material that was confusing in the book, and she was concerned about student's progress if approached about it. However, I think sometimes she forgot that we were in other classes, and the workload would be a little unreasonable. The material was difficult at times, but the tests were curved pretty well. I would take another class with this professor.

Workload:
There was a good amount of work for this class. There were weekly problem sets (which at times could be very lengthy), chem labs (with reports and pre-lab quizzes that were much easier than in bio labs), 3 tests, and a cumulative final. Definitely use the problem sets, suggested problems, and practice test to study for the tests.

Review:
Great professor. Great oratory skills which makes his course very interesting.

Very friendly guy who you can relate to any time.

Workload:
As long as you practice and practice and practice you will do just fine.

Christopher Morse | CHEM002 - Chemical Principles | Chemistry2004-07-11

Review:
First of all he plays the favoritism card; which is just ludicrous. He spends way too much time trying to make your life a living hell. Honestly I think he gets a kick out of the whole thing.

Workload:
This class will definitely get you on assignments. Take Morse though if you like that kind of stuff.

Christopher Morse | CHEM002 - Chemical Principles | Chemistry2004-04-26

Review:
Professor Morse was probably the WORST professor I had in my entire time at Tufts. He played favorites, was flighty, and tried too hard to act like a college kid. He seems too busy trying to socialize to actually take the time to teach chem. Office hours were not helpful particularly because he spends his time talking to people or talking on AIM. And the lack of office hour help really makes a difference on his insane tests. I did well, but still wish I had taken the class with another professor.

Workload:
Chemistry will dominate your life.

Christopher Morse | CHEM002 - Chemical Principles | Chemistry2004-04-24

Review:
This class made me feel stupid. It's more of a class about how to figure out Prof. Morse's insane chemistry puzzles than learning about chem. The class itself is upbeat and Prof. Morse can be funny. You do learn the chemistry and it seems like you may even understand it until you take a test. He likes to trick you in questions and even if you do know the chem, you still won't get it. Prof. Morse also likes to tell the entire class that everyone is going to fail, which really makes everyone feel great. This class made my life a living hell.

Workload:
The problem sets will take up ALL your time and leave you time for nothing else. Get a study group right away.

Christopher Morse | CHEM002 - Chemical Principles | Chemistry2004-04-24

Review:
If you want to spend your semester on a scavenger hunt for problem set answers, the meaning in pointless labs, or the humor your Professor's "funny" remarks, or if you are doing research on the interaction between "suck ups" and those who cannot live unless they have a cult of people that suck up to them (but then make fun of them behind their back), Chem 2 is the class for you!!! However, if you want to learn anything about the Principles of Chemistry, think about taking a summer class elsewhere. I wish I did.

Workload:
Um, this class has a stupid amount of work. Most of which you will have to either copy off of someone else or spend 8 hours trying to solve. I hope you don't have any other classes.

Christopher Morse | CHEM002 - Chemical Principles | Chemistry2004-04-24

Review:
Chem 2 is harder than Chem 1. But, Morse's clear explanations in class and his brilliant TAs at recitation make the concepts understandable. Morse uses real life examples of chemistry fundamentals to explain why it?s important for us to know these abstract concepts. Not only do you learn about chemistry, but you learn about car batteries, what types of alcohols can get you drunk, how carbon dating works and more. I love how he incorporates the real work (and pop culture) into his class. His energy and clarity makes this very hard introductory class enjoyable most of the time and at least bearable the other times.

Workload:
A LOT OF WORK. Expect to spend several hours every Thursday night on problems sets. Tests are also hard and require a lot of studying (USE THE PRACTICE TESTS)! The labs are a pain but don't take that much time.

Review:
Awesome teacher! Very smart and fun. He'll do anything to help you out. He's wicked fair too. You'll learn more than you've ever imagined.

Workload:
Insane amount of work. P-sets take hours every week. You need a study group or you'll drown.
