Comment: Professor Wemmer is great at answering students' questions on Piazza, but his lecture are a bit duller than Kuriyans. Nonetheless, Wemmer is supportive in Office Hours and leaves no lingering questions unanswered. I feel that he is more approachable than Kuriyan. On the grading side, Wemmer's homeworks are harder to unpack and understand (perhaps because the material itself is more convoluted) than Kuriyan's. Also, Wemmer's exams tend to be more difficult and require you to apply your knowledge and not only regurgitate facts. He writes the third midterm and the final exam. The average for his midterm is around 52% with a SD of 17%. The final exam's average is around 60% with a SD of 18% for Fall 2013.

Comment: Wemmer is a sweet, smart man, but can be hard to follow during lecture. His questions on the tests were def a little more confusing or unclear though. However, he was really good about answering students' questions on piazza.

Comment: I feel like he didn't teach me much, but directed me to the book really well. I have to say, though, that he was AMAZINGLY helpful on Piazza (the online platform). He spent hours answering questions and is able to do so in a clear manner. Also, he is actually a really nice guy. I would not be scared of him if you are considering taking his class.
