She flies through the material and doesn't cover things twice. If you ask a question she will answer it in the exact same way she just explained it which doesn't help if you didn't get it the first time. Her tests are extremely hard. Tests covers information from the book, lecture, lab, and online …more quizzes. Final is cumulative. less

Felt like she tries to teach someone else's material, tests IMO not representative of class material, in fact so bad that every test was curved (sometimes 20 points). Otherwise helpful, but she needs to come up with her own material and ways of teaching, lecture is not working well.

Foe Astronomy 1: Tests can be a little tricky, but overall, she's not bad for her first year teaching. Taking her next semester. Definitely willing to help if the help is needed. She does't give tests back, but if you go to her office hours or set up an appointment, she will go through the entire …more test with you to help. No reason to make below a B. less

Dr. McGahee is a good professor. Class is interesting and nothing is too difficult. You mostly learn facts about the solar system and some basic formulas that are given to you on tests. If you have a hard time understanding a concept, the power points or book should be more than enough to help. …more A competent student won't have trouble here. less

I'm really upset with this class. While she is overall a good teacher her tests are super hard no matter how much you study. Plus she has a terrible grading scale I got a C in the class even though I was at a 79.97 which is super frustrating and I have never had a teacher not round up. I worked so …more hard and barely missed any class. less

Dr. McGahee was a good prof, especially for a first year teacher. I would take her again and enjoyed being in her class. Tests are hard, but it is physics, so that is not unexpected. Do your HW and you will be fine.

This professor is one of my favorite professors at App; she can be hard to understand in class, esp with the parts that aren't her specialty, but if you work with her she'll help you to the best of her ability. If you ask questions and read the text, the tests aren't that hard. She says that …more attendance is mandatory, but gives up pretty quickly less

She sometimes mixes up her examples in class but wants the class to ask questions if something is confusing. Loves class participation. Homework is long and difficult sometimes covering relevant material after homework is due, but also willing to be flexible if the class complains (moved one of our …more hw due dates bc of test).

People that take this class for a Gen Ed tend to say she isn't a good teacher because they though Astronomy would be easy and there would be no math involved. If you care even a little about the class, it's super easy, and she is the easiest teacher to get along with. She's also a new teacher …more trying to learn the best methods on how to teach. less
