He's not a bad teacher, but I felt that he was a terrible professor. Some had trouble with his French accent - didn't bother me. But he made his expectations very unclear! Often implied one thing about the class and meant something different. Quizzes+attendance alone account for 25% of each exam …more grade. Ridiculous. Also sometimes messed up grading. less

If you don't get involved in learning, you won't do well with Dr. Jacinthe. If you get involved in your own education, you'll do all right.

This class was fairly easy if you just were in class everyday and kept up with the reading. If you get behind though, it's really tough to catch back up.

Pierre is one of the best professors I've had at IUPUI. He's very good at explaining difficult concepts--he often draws pictures or tells funny stories to illustrate them. He can tell when the class is confused and he will stop and explain something in a different way instead of moving on to …more something else. Start your term paper early! less

If you keep up with the reading and make sure you put time into your paper, you will do well in this class. I slacked off on one test or I would have gotten a solid A, A+. Not a hard class and a great introduction to environmental science. Professor's accent was NOT bad and class was interesting. I …more would take another course with this teacher. less

Pierre is extremely hard to understand because of his heavy accent. It does make you focus a little more during class when trying to understand him. Grade was based on 2 tests, a writing assignment and the final. He takes attendance but is not part of your grade.

If you get perfect attendance (or someone to sign if for you) he rounds up your grade to the next letter. went from an B+ to an A-. do the Extra credit for tests, helps by 10%. 3 tests and One really long paper (9-10 page), or research project (6+hrs. and 3 pages).

Dr. Jacinthe is an awesome prof! His soils class is well worth it. He takes time to explain the concepts in a way that everyone can understand. His tests are straightforward as long as you attend class, study your notes and complete the homework. He includes a few practical learning days to …more show students a few things in the field and lab. less
