Came in thinking the class would be an easy A, came out scratching my head. He seems like a good guy and definitely knows his stuff, but lectures are all over the place. Exams are online, but quite difficult. I don't recommend unless you're genuinely interested in the subject.

TOO SMART TO TEACH. Took for easy A, but found myself in over my head. Very confusing, ambiguous lectures that are impossible to follow. Tests were very random and all based on his unorganized lectures becasue there is no book; thus tests were very hard. The TAs were out to get the students. He was a very nice and understanding person. DONT TAKE

The class definitely is not an easy A. But I think that was more of the course's fault, and not Morgan's. Everything for the course is essentially done online. He is very nice and friendly, and you can tell that he is very enthusiastic about the weather.

Worst professor I've had at UW. He says nothing of importance during lecture, so you always leave feeling like you learned nothing. Tests are impossible, since there's no textbook, everything on it is from his lectures, which make no sense. Powerpoints are useless too. This class with any other professor would actually be interesting. STAY AWAY!

Supposed to be an "easy A" class for a general requirement, but it ruined my GPA with a C. In lecture Prof. Morgan will be nice and answer questions in a friendly way, but don't try to contact him outside of class because he will not get back to you. Came across as rude. Would not recommend, take a different class for the requirement.

Do yourself a favor and don't take this class. Concepts are confusing and you are not taught how to apply them to the class or the questions that are asked on the exams. Nice guy not so good of a teacher.

People who rated professor anything higher than a 3 on these categories is obviously a TA. He is of no help to students, especially when wording the exam. Questions are vague and confusing. Never taught how to apply knowledge in the test setting, which caused lower test scores than anticipated every time an exam is taken.

Morgan is awesome! He makes his topics very interesting and applicable to real life. The class is not difficult at all. All the exams are online, so you can use your notes. Anyone that thinks that they're difficult should go back to high school. All the notes and lectures are posted online, so that makes it really easy to review for exams.

Awful....this class can possibly ruin your GPA if you are not a science person. The material on the exams are horrible. He will ask you to analyze maps. All the exams will be taken on online, and you can use your notes. But if you are not good at applications, you cannot score high.....

Absolutely abysmal. Avoid this professor, he is unorganized and impossible to get a hold of. He seems to put little effort into class. Lecture is confusing and boring.

Exams are not hard, but you always lose more points than you expected. Also, his lecture is extremely bored. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!

He's a smart guy and has a dry sense of humor. Class is boring, but sometimes can be interesting, but the exams are pretty easy. I think it's worth taking if your looking to fulfill a science credit.

This was the most boring class I have ever taken. Coming into it I thought that might be semi-interesting but it is just impossible to pay attention.

Professor Morgan's a really nice guy and extremely bright, but he's an awful professor. The logical flow of his lectures ranges from slightly confusing to completely incoherent. He never seems to know what direction to take his own lecture. Confusing, boring and unorganized. My class did not respect him because of this. Should stick to research.

Terrible professor. Very slow to respond to emails, difficult to schedule appointments with. Horribly boring class. Takes it way too seriously for a 100 level class. MOST OF US DO NOT WANT TO BE A METEOROLOGISTS! Do NOT take this class.

Good teacher, all you need to do is show up to class. The exams are easy, all questions are taken from notes that he posts online. He also makes fun of his weight, which is funny.
