By far and away the nicest professor you will ever meet. He genuinely cares about his students and makes the class worth attending. The class consisted of 12 homework assignments with 2 of them being group projects. The homeworks are sometimes a little time consuming but are very easy. Friedman almost always solves part of the assignment in class to get you started. There are 2 midterm exams and a final exam that are exactly the same as the practice midterms except for different numbers.You are allowed to bring 4 sheets of paper front and back of notes for each midterm and 12 sheets of notes for the final. Simply scale down the practice tests to fit on your notes sheets and you will get an A. Easy as that. Friedman also gave extra credit for showing up on a rainy day and for picking up your graded homework. Great professor. Easy A. |

First things first: Friedman is the nicest guy alive. Now that I've established that, stats is a breeze. Homeworks were sometimes time-consuming and group projects were kinda a buzz kill, but other than that, I had no problems. If you're wondering about tests and the final, let me tell you something kid, work the practice exams/final. He does not change the format or questions of the exams/final. All he does is change the numbers. So know the formulas for each question and you're SET. Besides, you can bring in like 6 pages for his 2 exams and 12 pages for his final so you can basically copy the practice exams/final onto your cheat sheet. Ahhh, gotta appreciate classes like this, kids! |

Dr. Friedman is probably the nicest man you will ever meet. IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE. First lecture? He called himself a cupcake. He really understands how hard ChE is, and so he makes it his goal to lighten your courseload. He has pretty good lectures and teaches fairly well. Homework load is pretty light (perhaps an hour a week), and exams are straightforward. He doesn't try to trick you at all. Take him! |

NICEST PROFESSOR EVER! Dr. Friedman is such a sweet guy, and he recognizes that most people are taking this class with Transport/Ops, etc., so he tries to make the class workload as light as possible. Attendance isn't required, but he sometimes gives bonus points for those who do show up through easy activities (counting M&Ms, etc.). The homeworks can be a little annoying just because you don't want to have to do anything for this class, but the tests are super easy and exactly like the practice exams. He also gives out chocolate during the tests which is a nice added bonus. |

Dr. Friedman is once of the nicest professors you will ever meet. He genuinely cares about his students, almost to a fault (he even reschedules homework deadlines if students complain). He is very easygoing, and is willing to answer any and all questions. During lecture, he will go as slow as you need. Homework assignments never took longer than half an hour (at the most), and the exams are very easy. |

Professor Friedman is soooo nice! Seriously, if you don't get an A in this class, I would be extremely surprised. I didn't even go to class half the time, and when I did, it was because I wanted to listen to Friedman's jokes or because he emailed us saying that "there will be m&ms and extra credit if you come today!" All of his previous tests are on blackboard, he lets you bring 4 pages of notes to the tests (front and back) and 12-16 to the final, and a good portion of your grade comes from the homework (which is mostly completion). He even gives you chocolate during the exams!!! What a guy! Anyway, I really love Friedman, as I'm sure you can tell, but especially because he understands that most of the people in his class are more worried about other ChE classes. In fact, he'll tell you during lectures or review sessions that "you should be worried about Transport, don't worry about my class," and he'll give you a TON of extra credit in case you mess up on a test or forget to turn in a homework assignment. On top of all of that, I really feel like I learned A LOT; he makes the course so easy and stress-free that learning and paying attention during lectures is fun, and even if you don't go to class all of his lecture notes online are easy to understand. The only stuff that is somewhat difficult he teaches towards the end, so be sure to go to class at that point! |
