"Tests? Not many" "Big time extra credit"

All of the homework is extra credit. Since there is not 'grade weighting' if you do the extra credit, no reason you cannot get at A or B in the class. He drops the lowest test score and a couple quizzes.

"There for you" "Amazing lectures" "Would take again"

Michael Scott is an excellent instructor! He makes difficult concepts easy to understand through clear instruction and plenty of in class practice. He has great analogies to make the material easier to comprehend also. The key is to practice! Very much enjoyed his lectures.

CHM 151 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A
"Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

Probably the most reasonable instructor I've ever had - not a stickler for attendance, all homework is extra credit, he gives out "pre-quizes" to prepare you for the upcoming quiz, drops your worst exam score. He's also very clear when explaining the material and what is expected. A great teacher overall!

CHM 152 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

He is a great professor but I wouldn't personally recommend taking his class. If you do decide to take his class, you really need to pay attention on the course work. The quizzes and homework are very easy BUT the test are nothing like the content in the quizzes and homework. His tests are like curve balls.

CHEM130 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Chemistry is a VERY HARD class and subject in general. If I did not have so much of Mike's help I would not have passed his lecture or my lab. I got a C, however, I worked my butt off for that grade. This professor is Awesome! Go into his office hours, he helps so much. He drops a ton of quizzes, and 1 test, plus gives extra credit.

This is an awesome professor. I had him for both lecture and lab. He is always willing to go out of his way to help you! I took this in the summer and with minimal studying I understood the material and got an A. I had a great foundation entering the next Chem course. Take him!

I had Scott for my lab class. He repeats a lot of lecture material every lab, but is very clear about procedures. He is fair at grading, and is helpful when asked questions. I'd recommend him to anyone!

Mr. Scott is a great teacher. He is very clear in what teaching what you need to know. If you have questions he is more then willing to help. Even though Chemistry is difficult he makes it seem simple and easy. I would highly recommend Mr. Scott. With the extra quizzes and drop test and extra credit it really helps out!

I am not one that loves chemistry but Michael Scott is an absolutely AMAZING instructor. He seems to genuinely love chemistry and teaching the subject. He loves to answer any questions you may have and teaches in great detail. I think that he is a GREAT teacher and would take his class again.

Funny and easy going.. His test are nothing like his quizzes, the quizzes focus on calculating while the test are conceptual. very little of the test is covered in class. I found out that going to the book and solving the conceptual questions there was very helpful to his test style. EASY overall

He is an awesome teacher! His lectures are very clear and he goes over and over problems to make sure you can understand them. I was a little nervous about taking chemistry, but I have actually enjoyed it. He is easy going and fun. I definitely recommend him.

Great teacher, he is really helpful when you ask for it. His lectures contain a lot of information and he goes through it fast, so if your confused make sure to ask questions, he will stop to answer and clarify, but if you dont you'll be confused and get aggravated. Mr. Scott is a really good teacher.

BY FAR THE BEST CHEMISTRY TEACHER EVER!!! I am not good at chemistry, I am actually quite horrible, but he made the subject understandable, he used alot of everyday references and he was super helpful! He gave quite alot of quizzes, but they helped you stay on your toes. I highly recommend him!!

Professor Scott was a fantastic instructor. He was always willing to help if you had any questions. He also offers extra credit points, which take up a lot of time, but they're great practice for his exams. He's a really nice guy. Definitely recommend!

He is a great teacher. Very very easy. Made everything understandable. Do the homework and you wont have to study. Make sure you do your work though, points are always nice. Other than that he is a good teacher, don't be scared to ask questions he DOES want to help.

This instructor was didn't want to help after class. When I asked for help his reply was, "I would like to go home." The extra credit homework problems took up time that I needed to learn the material. Not worth taking the time to get 10 extra credit points.
