MARS 1010
The Marine Environment
3***
Uses comprehensive powerpoints in class which he posts online. Review powerpoints for tests are also given. Exams are fairly difficult, but he curves a lot. Didn't start taking attendance until the final third of the semester. Hard to understand sometimes, but not terrible.

MARS 1010

3***
Pros: He's funny and he knows what he's talking about. He tries to engage students. Gives three tests and curves them a bunch. He posts power points online
Cons: The information is extremely boring and he is kind of difficult to understand. He left when I took the class several times and we had a second teacher that was even more difficult to understand.
Takes attendance grades on fridays usually by giving small quizzes that only count for attendance points which he adds to tests.Tests are rather hard and make sure you get a good lab TA because it's work a good portion of your grade. The one project he gave was a group presentation.

Pros: --Funny guy

--Everything is off of the powerpoint

--Posts the powerpoint online
Cons: --HEAVY CHINESE ACCENT

--Trades off with another teacher (he teaches the ecosystems part of the course, and another teacher comes in to teach the physics part)
Likes to make random jokes and tries to connect with the class (which is hard because there are about 200 people in there). Reads right off the powerpoint. Takes attendance on Fridays only through short video quizzes (one or two questions long and don't count for anything--just uses it to see who turns them in).

Pros: Zhang really cares! He's really sweet and tries his best to capture your attention.
Cons: His accent is sometimes hard to understand, and he doesn't really follow the textbook. At all.
He's a good teacher, he just doesn't teach that well. The class was really hard to understand. A for effort though

Pros: Pretty Easy. Quizzes every week in lab but are straight forward and easy.
Cons: Difficult to understand. Not very interesting.
I would not recommend this class for non science people. It is not interesting and I studied extremely hard in a study group and ended up with a high b+

Pros: He makes the class really simple. Curved tests. Tests are not hard if you actually go to class. You will miss things if you just look at the power points. Extra Credit.
Cons: Wastes time sometimes and does not prepare for tests as well as Meile.
DON"T BUY BOOK

WOKS WITH MEILE

4****
Pros: He is interested in topic. Encourages class particpation
Cons: Heavy Chinese Accent. He is in the field a lot.
Do not buy the textbook. There is no need. The powerpoints are super helpful and the tests are solely off of them. Attendance is checked sometimes.

Pros: Zhang is a funny guy, he at least tries to make this horrendous class interesting.
Cons: His accent is sometimes hard to understand and honestly, I can never quite grasp the concepts he talks about in class. Tests are HARD.
