Tufts University: Robert Reuss - Geology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Robert Reuss | GEO001 - The Dynamic Earth| Geology2004-04-06

Review:
The Dynamic Earth quite literally offers something for everyone. Those looking to major in the natural sciences will find this course to be an excellent introduction to the study of the Earth, and those dreading having to fulfill their science requirements will find a user-friendly experience with a manageable workload. Reuss delivers some of the most lively and animated lectures on the hill, each one with enthusiasm that belies the fact he has been teaching the same course for decades. Vivid demonstrations accompany the lecture notes, which are, without fail, written meticulously on the blackboard half an hour before the class begins. Although there are typically over 100 students in the class, Bert (as he insists on being called) will memorize everyone's name within the first few weeks.

Workload:
Geology 1 will take up a considerable amount of class time each week; there are three lectures and one lab, which is usually a three-to-four-hour field trip to geologic formations in the Boston area. The reading load is always manageable, however; and the labs are always interesting. There are two hour-long examinations and one final. This is not "Rocks for Jocks;" success on each exam requires a good deal of studying. The material should be interesting even for non-science types, however, and the lectures and labs are so well done that going to class is never a chore.
