Her abilities as a professor are poor. She continually manages to confuse both herself and her students. The structure of the class is nonexistent. Do your best to tune her out, keep up with the class independently and you'll be alright. Also: lecture is useless, but clickers matter so make sure to come.

Chem 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I think that she is great! Although she does get jumbled sometimes, if you read the book, and do the practice problems in the book, you will be just fine! The test questions come straight from her worksheets, so if you can master them, (which isn't hard if you thoroughly read the book) then the test will be a breeze!

She's a nice lady and honestly I'm not sure why people complain about her. Even though she's a bit jumbled she is a decent professor. Her tests are fairly easy and she puts all of the formulas on them.

I don't know why people complain about her. She really isn't that bad of a professor; I think people just blame her for the difficulty of the course. Her tests are fairly easy and she puts all of the formulas on there.

chem 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

she is a very good teacher and she knows her chemistry, but she often confuses herself which causes the class to be confused as well. the way she writes her notes during lecture are not helpful at all.

she is the sweetest woman; however she is very often confused and having technical difficulties. she doesn't explain things correctly because half the time she is unsure herself. I would NOT RECOMMEND her as a professor

She's an okay teacher but she is forgetful when it comes to the class material. There were instances where the class was teacher her because she couldn't remember how to do a certain thing.

Crawley is nice, but her course is confusing. I did a lot of self-teaching from the textbook, but still went to class to know what chapter we were currently on and hear the material gone over once. Her PowerPoints are useful study tools, they basically summarize the chapter. She must have a pretty generous curve.

If you go to SI sessions and take extremely good notes, you will do fine. As of now I have an A in the class and haven't gotten under an 88 on a test. You just have to be organized and disciplined. Dr. Crawley is a lady with great intentions, but she isn't very clear in her lectures. Also, she hardly responds to your e-mails, so she's not reliable.

She is a really nice person but she is too scattered and I don't understand anything she teaches. Ive made my way through the course by studying with others and reading the textbook. It helps that she drops 3 lowest quiz grades and only counts 5 of mastering chem

I was tricked into taking chem 100. Just take 101, seriously. Crawley is a nice enough lady, but totally scatterbrained and not a good teacher. If you end up with her, just read the chem book and come to the tests. She doesn't even grade the clicker questions, all the tests are curved, and she drops almost all of the homework grades.

I loved AP chemistry in high school, but this class made me hate the subject. Dr. Crawley is a very nice woman, but a very unorganized, slow-moving professor. It was difficult to summon the willpower to go to her lecture. I frequently left class feeling as if I learned nothing meaningful. We didn't even finish all the material for the final exam.

I understood chemistry so well before I came into her class for my first year. I don't recommend her as a professor, choose Polo. It was confusing and frustrating and her notes that she gives you are all over the place and that drove me crazy. Good luck to anyone who has her. & go to the SI sessions if you do end up with her!

Horrible professor; her lectures are confusing and poorly explained. Uses LONCAPA for HW, but half the time your answers won't work because her work is flawed. Tests are unbalanced with 40% of the points resting on 3-4 problems out of 30. Grades poorly but curves to counter it; I avg'd a C but ended up with an A. Simply do NOT take her for chem.
