Great teacher, lots of dad jokes, great w/ participation during lectures. Class A professor, still works as a Chemist & knows his stuff. He's strict w/ assignments but incredibly fair (if whole class struggles he will reevaluate, reteach, and retest the class). Makes lots of heavy metal puns w/ …more transition metals & is just a good dude. less

Really is an amazing professor. Very tough grader, but chemistry isn't suppose to be easy. He will help you out a lot if you go and ask for it. He knows a lot about this stuff. Crucial to attend his class!

Dr. Bates is a really caring/patient professor. He tries really hard to make lectures interesting (cracking dad jokes) and clear. Offers out of class study sessions before tests, ample opportunities for help, is just a really cool guy (but how could you not be with a lip ring a mowhawk?) Love him, …more but you'll still need to put in work on your own!! less

Dr. Bates is new at App State and so far chem has been super chill. He goes over the previous classs notes at the beginning of each class and explains things clearly (mostly). Exams are ok if you just study the material. He posts notes online which is super useful. Definitely take advantage of …more office hours. Really nice guy and super cool. less

I love Dr. Bates! Take him. You wont regret it. Go to his office hours. He is so nice, funny, and always willing to help. He gives plenty of opportunities to be successful, you just gotta put in the work. Not an easy class, but definitely easy to be successful. Literally the coolest guy ever.

My only complaint was that he needs to learn to manage class time. Towards the end of the semester, we ran out of time so we had to really rush, but other than that he was a good teacher and was easy to find outside of class. He was funny and his class was an enjoyable experience.

I was in his very first che1101 lecture class this past semester. He's extremely nice, cool, and funny. Would definitely recommend taking his class! He'll give you extra credit opportunities at times which has helped me. Chemistry is not my best subject but I managed to pull through his class. …more You're not going to get an easy A but please study!! less

Dr. Bates is a great and caring professor. I have to retake this class because of doing poorly on a single exam due to not studying enough, but am retaking it with Dr. Bates! He fully prepares you for each exam and offers a study guide and a review session as well. If you go to class, study, and …more really take this class seriously you will succeed. less

Dr. Bates is AWESOME. Hands down best prof Ive had at App. Hes direct in his explanations and knows how to not over-complicate the topics in the course. Study the slides, go to his review sessions and TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SAPLING! Sapling reinforced everything from class. Grades tests quickly and …more fairly (curves appropriate amounts). Love this guy! less
