Tests are really hard because we cover a ton of material per test. 200 pages at least, and he will not help us with a review. Drones on in class and rambles. No powerpoints, so I leave class confused about what we learned. Has Clicker questions but they are usually terrible, like he wants us to get them wrong.

Terrible professor. Very unclear, doesn't know how to work any technology. Talks about Antarctica in class then assigns us complex homework about planets and earthquakes. The homework is time consuming and due almost every class.

Dr. Wise is literally the cutest professor I have ever had. He's so goofy and he genuinely loves what he teaches. He's also really accommodating if youre having trouble. This class isn't an easy a though, but he does provide lots of extra credit as long as you go to class and do the pq's.

Dr. Wise is awesome! DON'T EXPECT TO LEARN ABOUT DINOSAURS STRAIGHT AWAY!! You start by learning about rocks and geology, then evolution of life and planets, then dinosaurs. The class is super fun and really easy. The homework assignments are really long before the first exam, but most of the questions from the test are straight from the hw.

The class really isnt that bad. He really is a sweet and funny guy and really wants to see everyone do well, but gives really hard tests. Class lectures can be boring, but you get extra credit for answering the questions he asks throughout the class. Study for the tests and do as much extra credit as you can and you'll get an A. Take the class.

Yes, he's adorable, but for a non-major class, he really has to be sympathetic for his students. Why is SO much studying necessary for a class called "dinos & disasters"? I'm lucky for this to be my only legitimate final but I can't imagine what other people are going through.

GLY1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The class was auditorium style with about 5 videos a day and 2 PRS questions. Tests were hard as hell for no reason. Homework was retarded field trips and random campus activities. I don't have time for corny stuff like that. Overall a very fun course but boring subject matter and tons of work.

Wonderful teacher, so enthusiastic about this class, but that also means a lot of work comes with it. Lots of homework (easy... but tedious) and tests can be abstract unless you study everything he gives you. 4 absences allowed, PRS extra credit given every class. Lots of videos and really, he is the cutest, nicest professor, you have to work for i

He gives more extra credit than any teacher I've met. He makes you learn about the evolving planet before you get to Dinos but it really is a cool and interesting class and he is a great teacher! I would highly recommend him. Tests are challenging but doable.
