"There for you" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Hilarious"

I don't like science but she made it a little more bearable. If you go to her office hour for help, she will ALWAYS help. If you show effort, go to class, and do the homework you'll do well. She's also really funny and her lectures are very interesting.

Geography Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is wonderful. I came into the class angry at science but came out extremely happy. The tests were challenging but she goes over the study guide, practically giving you the answers. She is really funny, once you warm up to her. I wish she wasn't so hard on herself with the jokes tho! Because she is a beautiful person and a great teacher.

She is pretty eccentric and light-hearted. She understands that not everyone in the class is a geog major, so she teaches accordingly.

Really nice teacher, lots of extra credit. She is very clear in what she's talking about and her classes are interesting but show up because she gives tons of EXTRA CREDIT for full attendance. I learned way more than I ever thought I would in her class, I enjoyed it a lot.

SECTt teacher that keeps you interested in a rather boring subject. Super helpful if you don't understand something and lots of chances to help raise your grade. Would definitely take again.

Geog0000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Tests were super hard, on the final in my class a 75 was the 3rd highest grade. She is not very clear sometimes, and the questions on the tests can feel like there are two right answers. Did not like the class, studied a lot, did all the reading and barely got an A. I felt confused most of the time.

She was great! Always there to help with any questions, and crystal clear. Some of the topics covered required some work and attention, but her extra credit made it easy to pass. She attempts to make the class fun, and it really does help make the material more bearable. She lets you use cheat sheets for almost every test.

The test are really REALLY hard.The good thing is that Cate gives Loads of extra credit. Just do ALL of the extra credit available and you will pass. I failed all but one text.The only thing that saved my grade was the loads of extra credit.If you half way study it shouldn't be to hard.She answers lots of test questions in class.

GEO0923 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Cate is a very kind and accomodating person. Her lectures covered only about half of the tested material, but her tests allow either a cheat sheet or an open book. Having the book is essential to pass this class. Some extra credit was placed throughout the semester. I've retained most of what was taught.

Cate was a nice teacher overall and a great lecturer. However, she's not always nice when people ask questions, so beware. She's very clear about what she wants from you and she offers loads of extra credit...I made a few mistakes and still got a B. Cate really made me appreciate every detail of the Earth and its natural processes.

Despite not being much of a science whizz, I quite enjoyed Prof. Braschi's class. I, like many of the students in the class, struggled with some of the physics concepts, but with loads of extra credit and a little perseverance, I was able to pull off an A. She's quite entertaining and does make clear what you need to do in order to do well.

Good use of humor. A little scattered but she'll show you exactly what she wants on the test. The class was boring, but she did her best to make it not so bad.

Good teacher overall. Do all the home work and the extra credit and you should be fine.Half way through the semester she started letting us use notes on tests.i think its because our class was struggling. FYI this calss goes hand in hand with physics 10 for the first half of the semester.

Cate was a fun teacher. I got very little out of the course, but what I can remember has proved helpful and applicable sometimes. If you get the homework done, and do ok on the tests, you'll get an A.

Cate was really nice and funny. Her class was interesting and if you do what she asks then you do well on tests. She also gives extra credit which will help you out a lot. Don't take if you are not interested in the course.
