Darren Williams is awesome. He knows how to time travel which is pretty cool. He can tell you what the future will look like if you ask him. Also if you earn an A+ he will teach you the secrets of time traveling. Good Luck!

Awesome professor. He is very knowledgable and passionate about astronomy. He's a really nice and funny guy. Class covers a ton of material but all quizes are with a clicker so sit by someone smart. Grades on a huge curve.

Darren is awesome. His quizzes are impossible to pass cause it's all based on lectures, but he curves. He also knows how to time travel which is pretty chill.

Darren Williams is one of the coolest professors I have ever had. He loves to use technology and he clearly is interested in astronomy. Quizzes are pretty hard if you don't pay attention and attendance is kind of mandatory due to clicker points. O yeah he can time travel. Go talk to him in his office hours and he'll "teach" you. Involves magnets!

Dr williams gives very poor notes. When I look back in my notebook I have no idea what we were doing in class. He does not do things in an organized way-instead he jumps all over with the content. Also, there were multiple times he gave us the wrong formulas on the board and I had to look up the right ones myself.

Easy class. Print out the powerpoints before class so you can figure out the clicker questions. Theres over 100 clicker questions so its worth it. Half the tests are in class(partner checks your answers) and half are online. You dont need the book.Curves major so dont panic.

Every class I went to get my points with the clickers... then zoned out for the rest of it. he curves ALOT, so you don't really have to put much effort into it. Oh, and write down the answers on a separate sheet of paper to the quizzes when he goes over themin class, because he literally copy/pastes quiz questions onto the final.

awesome guy, very nice. He just tries to use technology in the classroom too much, and in doing so makes some things more confusing than they need to be. But overall a very good class. Tests are hard, but curved. very interesting class. I reccomend taking this class, it opens your mind alot.

The man has no teaching ability what so ever. His presentations consist of him learning along with you.

He is great. Class is fun. He is helpfull if you ask him to. He gives a lot extra credits. It is hard to get D in his class if you do at least something. C is almost guaranteed.

Put your name on the tests, do the extra credit, and you are guaranteed a C+...any, and I mean ANY extra effort and your grade will go up greatly. He is pretty nice but he stumbles alot. He isn't very clear with things, we shouldn't have to ask about everything to be clarified

Sometimes long, boring class, but he is HIGHLY interested in the course which makes it more fun than it would be otherwise. Lots of opportunities to make up lost points from on tests. He's a really nice teacher and many students do take advantage of him for that. Interesting class though.
