Students found that Professor Wania as a good instructor but at times, they thought he could be more enthusiastic about the course. They also suggested that he lecture more clearly and audibly as there were concepts in the course that were not easily understood. Other suggestions students had for Professor Wania was that he should give more interactive examples in his future lectures.

No students in this class seem to doubt Professor Gentleman's knowledge of chemistry but many have criticisms or had difficulties with the way he went about transmitting it. Various concerns include his quiet speech and tendency to stop entirely to wait out classroom disruptions, an excessive focus on the history of chemistry rather than the core (and tested) material of the course, and a sense that he was deliberately teaching above the level of the class. Several students also noted that turning off the lights for PowerPoint presentations wasn't required to see the screen and only made them sleepy.

Student in this class had trouble identifying important material from the bulk of information presented, including the history of chemistry, biographies of important figures, pictures on the slides, etc. A few students found this extra information interesting, but most felt lost and disconnected. Comments about Professor Gentleman's volume and insistence on quiet in the classroom were repeated (see section one of this course) but several students also appreciated his control over the classroom.

Students felt more than a little lost by this course and suggested some improvements. Some felt it was very important that Professor Donaldson stick more closely to the text and others felt he was pitching his lectures to too high a level and requested that he 'dumb things down' more. Students acknowledge this course as valuable, but difficult.
