Chemisty Class

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

This is absolute crap and I can’t believe I’m still taking it. Our chem Prof., Brad Herrick, is a brand new teacher to Mines. I think he just received his doctorate from UT @ Austin. And no he’s moved up here to terrorize us. A lot of what he does is online. For example, we can check our grades online, we submit our homework online (yes, we have required homework), and we download forms that need to be turned in from online. So what’s the problem. He doesn’t update the website. From the front page on his site “Scantron Data up tonight.” That from Friday and two days later it’s still not up! And it’s not like this has happened just once. This happens literally every single time.

In class, he says that it will be up.

On his website, he says it will be up.

Is it up? Not a chance. I think Katie is more frustrated than I am and I’m pretty frustrated. But if that’s not enough, there’s the exams. We have exams every other week, which is actually kind of nice. However, it doesn’t leave much time to study. And when you’re relying on material from the website to be up, and it’s not up until the day before the exam, it makes it kind of hard. And then there are the rules surrounding the test. For the first two tests, we were required to have a “cheat” sheet. For the third test, he provided us with a cheat sheet and for our fourth test, which we just had on Friday, it was open book/open note. 什么操!

Oh, and we don’t even have our grades from our third test!
