Tufts University: Rosanne Di Stefano - Astronomy - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Rosanne Di Stefano | AST009 - CONCEPTS OF THE COSMOS| Astronomy2005-09-25

Prof Di Stefano is a very nice lady. If you somehow manage to contact her, she'll put in a good effort to help and it seems like she cares. However, she is a terrible teacher and also very disorganized. She has no clue how to use equipment and it takes her up to 15 minutes to start class. The lectures are incredibly boring and seem pointless as I felt that I learned nothing. I fell asleep in every class except when we had exams. Overall attendance is poor, more than half the class doesn't show up. Much of what Di Stefano says in lectures is irrelevant. She may say one thing is true in class, but that same thing turns out to be false on an exam. Lecture notes are not very useful at all. All you need to know for the exams is in the book. She is an awful teacher and I advise going somewhere else for is you're just trying to fill the science requirement.

Workload is not bad. There are a few problem sets, 3 exams, project and no final. You should do well on exams so long as you know what's in the book. Project is pretty easy and it's worth a lot. Don't be mislead by low class averages for the exams that may appear on Blackboard as the zeros from people dropping the class are sometimes factored into the average. Those zeros will later be don't bank on a curve.
