Tufts University: Mary Jane Shultz - Chemistry - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Mary Jane Shultz | CHEM016 - CHEMISTRY OF MATERIALS | Chemistry2004-04-25

Review:
Do not take this class, take Chem 1 instead! Prof. Shultz is very intelligent but she is unable to convey her knowledge to her students. The lecture topics seemed to stray towards case studies or things less focused on quiz or test material.

Workload:
The homework is near-impossible and the text is no help. There are "quizzes" (more like tests) every other week, and large problem sets every week. There is also a project at the end of the semester (something chem 1 does NOT have).

Mary Jane Shultz | CHEM033 - PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY LAB | Chemistry2004-04-22

Review:
Avoid taking this class at all costs! Professor Shultz doesn't teach this class at all. It is entirely graduate student taught. In addition, it is very poorly organized, very poorly structured, and most of the experiments don't work.

Workload:
It is listed as 0.5 credits, but in reality it is 1.0 credit. Expect to spend a lot of time writing lab reports. If you don't need this class, I advise to stay far away from it.

Mary Jane Shultz | CHEM033 - PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY LAB | Chemistry2004-04-22

Review:
It would have been wonderful if a Mary Jane Shultz, PhD actually taught this class. Instead, we were taught by a handful of graduate students who were unfit to teach in the first place. These labs were poorly structured. The pre-labs never explored the experiments in depth, and the lab handouts were very confusing. Most students in the P-chem labs had difficulty understanding what we were doing. When I took this class, only 3 of 13 labs actually worked correctly. The graduate students exacerbated the problem by being un-attentive, unsympathetic, and unhelpful. They would routinely neglect to inform us of what they expected in lab reports, and then take points away from us when we didn't deliver. They would expect us to perform a complicated experiment without first showing us how, and then subtract points when we messed up. It seems their entire purpose was to make our experience as miserable as possible. If you don't need to take P-Chem lab, DON'T DO IT! It is quite possibly the worst class I have ever taken at Tufts.

Workload:
The workload was excessive. Although this class is listed as 0.5 credits, it is really a full-credit class. Expect a lot of long hours in the lab, expect a lot of experiments that won't work, and expect a lot of poor teaching.
