ASTRO 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-

Professor Ivanova is clearly quite passionate about her teaching. She's excellent at explaining concept. She shows interest in your questions, and never tries to hurry you away, unlike some other professors here. Make sure you can link concepts together, and you'll do great. She allows cheat sheet for exams. If you love astronomy, take this class!

ASTRO 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

her methods of teaching didn't suite me. She speaks fast, monotoned, and explain a problem solving by just pointing by the laser at the the powerpoint slide! attending her classes meant to me either daydreaming or sleeping at it. however, the subject is really interesting, and the book explanation is clear. her exams are super HARD!

ASTRO 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Worst prof I've ever had. Read ratings on here and took it anyway, but she ruined the subject for me. Tests are very hard and require students to understand and explain physics with no worked out examples done in class. Powerpoints had ridiculous amounts of trivial info and nothing was explained clearly. Not at all helpful answering questions

Basically what everyone else is saying. Class relies heavy on problem solving.

ASTRO 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I'm starting to reconsider my degree because of her. You can't understand her because not only does she mumble to herself, but she's constantly clearing her throat. The worst part, however, is how unbelievably disorganized her slides are. She gives reading assn. but throws irrelevant (to the topic) information into the slides. Worst class ever.

I wish I could rate her a negative number. Honestly the worst prof I've ever had. Don't take her class, you won't learn anything and it'll be bad on your GPA. Can't understand anything she says. SUPER HARD EXAMS. Not organized at all and doesn't solve any examples in class. Never gives out iclickr answers as well.

ASTRO122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND, she speaks super fast so you can't really understand what she's saying half the time, and she complains about students not knowing the math after the first midterm even though she never herself shows a single example and expects us to know new kinds of physics. HARD EXAMS. HARD CLASS. I hope I never get her as a prof again.
