BIO6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The flipped lecture was scary at first but it ended up being the best thing to happen to me. I only received a B but it's a difficult course! She allows you to see past exams, has her lectures on YouTube, and MyCR is FILLED with excellent learning resources from past semesters. You will learn more in this class than any other class! Wendy's AMAZING

Bio-7 Physio Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

An intense course, as it should be. Study, focus, & participate in the lectures. In my opinion, you get the grade you deserve, based on the work that YOU do. I think Wendy's overall goal is that we come away confident that we can discuss the content of the class with confidence and accuracy. There should be more instructors like Wendy in the world.

bio 6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wendy is very smart and a very talented teacher. I love her classes--HOWEVER, if you require clean and concise delivery of material when learning, you will likely have a difficult time focusing, as she is often side-tracked. You will need to remain organized with content even when she isn't, which frustrates a lot of people…but, still incredible.

BIOL-6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class is pure insanity. You must study every day or you wont make it. This doesn't include the time that it takes to "flip" the class, which is watching the lectures online and taking a ton of mandatory notes. You absolutely must be ready to memorize everything, no multiple choice! Her expectations are almost ridiculous. No other life allowed

Bio 6 anatomy Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Riggs lectures are Flipped, basically you watch the lecture on your own time and discuss the content the next day. What ever you put into the class is what you'll get out of it. pretty straight forward but difficult. lots of material and new content. I highly recommend her, be prepare to dedicate a good amount of time. enjoy..

bio 6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You will watch lectures outside of school. LOTS of time dedication, but she will be putting in at least the amount you are (probably a lot more). Content heavy, quizzes every lab, exams are tough but never have any real surprise questions. She is awesome, open-minded and creates a dynamic learning environment. She is a great teacher.

Bio 6 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

My absolute favorite teacher hands down! She is so full of light and loves what she is teaching about! She is a true inspiration and causes you to fall in love with what you are learning! She is very clear and helpful and goes above & beyond for her students! STUDY for her tests though, she's serious about her students learning the material!

Bio 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

OMG! LOVED this instructor! She went out of her way to make sure we understood the material. Made a number of different virtual games to assist our learning. Was totally fired up and knowledgeable about the subject. Others have said she was 'scatterbrained'...NOT IN THE LEAST! She even recorded study groups in case you couldn't be there. AWESOME!

Professor Jones is a great teacher. She took time to understand my calcaneal concerns and provide unique insights. I hope to take another class from her.
