Physics112 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hes a really nice guy and funny but not a great teacher. Lectures are pointless and mostly I taught myself the material, gets sidetracked easily. Requirements for exams are unclear, basically all you know is that there is an exam. No formula sheets or study guides given prior. If you try hard you'll do fine, fair grader.

ASTRO 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I would definitely not recommend. The class would be pretty easy if you take your own notes off the textbook AND show up to class and take his notes BUT he makes class so boring and doesn't take attendance so it gives you no incentive to show up. He's super nice, and gives chances for extra credit, but other than that, not a good experience.

ASTR 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hedin is a really nice guy. However, his class is extremely boring. All he does is stand up in the front of class and lecture with a slide show. He does offer A LOT of extra credit! Always do the extra credit! Tests are extremely difficult. So make sure you study as well.

ASTR 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I loved astronomy. he made me hate it. I'm sure he's a great guy, he seems very nice. but I couldn't stand his voice, the layout of his lecture hall (not his fault), and didn't understand the way he explained things.

ASTR 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Pretty good professor, I was expecting the class to be quite fun because I like astronomy, but his lectures are very boring. All he does is stand in front of a slideshow and lecture. Other than that, easy course to pass

PHYS120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Ball States finest. He does a lot of open discussions in class and really gets you thinking.. Is willing to work with you and your schedule. Tests are easy and if you show up to class you will know everything needed. Helps with labs and gets to know his students if you let him.

Great guy. Was very helpful with all of my questions and he seemed to be a very fair grader. I had my best science grade ever in his class.

HONRS296 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Nicest.guy.ever. I came into this course with zero physics experience and about the same level of interest, and although he sometimes loses everyone but the science majors in lecture, it's not too hard to manage a decent grade. Pay attention in class and you'll do well.

PHYSC112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hedin is the nicest guy ever...but not the best teacher. I had to learn everything by myself in that class. However, he is super fair with grading! He gives partial credit for multiple choice and homework and is available for help if you need it. He also curved grades at the end of the semester.

PHYCS112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Favorite teacher at BSU. Very helpful and so willing to work with you. Nicest man ever and also gives a lot of partial credit. Open to ideas and opinions for what you want out of the class. Learned more about physics from him than I ever did before. Physics 112 is a lot more conceptual than 110 but he made it seem easy.

HONRS296 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely nice guy and an easy class. However, the class had an extremely Christian bias and he does not believe in evolution. Many of his views do not quite jive with those of mainstream science. Class consisted of weekly journals, short article review, and a 6 page paper.

HONRS296 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

One of the nicest guys I have ever met in my life. He tries his hardest to make something so boring interesting, but I still had to bring my laptop to stay awake. He will work with you to make sure you get something out of the class, if that is what you are trying to do. Couldn't ask for a nicer guy.

Astro100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher, nice guy. Constantly talks religion, as an atheist, I was slightly concerned my science teacher is a devout christian. If you have astronomy at Ball State, get Dr. Hedin. He is willing to help with just about everything in class, and gives out more extra credit. Gave me 20 ec points just for showing up one friday. Great guy.

Astro100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tests can be hard and classes sometimes boring, but he is a really nice person and helpful when you need help in class. He offers quite a bit of extra credit throughout the semester and makes the extra credit fun yet related. If you take astronomy, definitely take it with him. the only bad thing is that he goes through things really fast.

ASTRO100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is very friendly and passionate about what he teaches. The tests are hard if you don't study very much. Sometimes his lectures are boring but he's just so nice I felt bad if I was drifting off. He offers a lot of extra credit and curves the tests. I think he realizes most people aren't that passionate about astronomy so he tries to make it easy.

This guy is awesome! Understands the amount of work students have and definitely makes the class enjoyable. He gives out tons of extra credit so just go to class and you could prolly get an A on the extra credit alone. Tests arent bad...he understands how complex the material is and adjusts tests accordingly
