Tufts University: Rosanne Di Stefano - Astronomy - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Rosanne Di Stefano | AST009 - CONCEPTS OF THE COSMOS| Astronomy2006-05-14

Review:
I dropped this course, because it was not the easy science I thought it was going to be. The course material was not easy, but required a lot of mathematical background. The book was expensive, the lectures were unhelpful, and the professor was patronizing. Di Stenfano is from Harvard and I really question why Tufts would hire someone who spoke to us like we were three years old but tested us like we were already experienced astronomers. She would never say what chapters in the book we were covering until a week before the exam. The professor and her team were not very organized. They lost my first homework assignment and it took ten emails from me and several visits to each of the TAs to finally recieve some credit for it. Much of the class time was wasted as the TAs and Di Stefano tried to figure out how to use the same equipment they used every class.

If you are looking for an easy sciene, take Wanders in Space, not this one.

Workload:
Three tests, you can drop the lowest one. Three homework assignments (answers are in the back of the book).
