Dr. Mittler gets a bad rap. He really knows his Physics, and if you try and follow what he's doing, he explains everything you need to know to do well in the class. Some people find it hard to follow his derivations, but if you take notes of what he does in class, he basically solves all the homework for you. Would take again.

General Physics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy, but bad at explaining anything. He says he "doesnt have to work a day in his life because he loves his job." I say, he doesnt work a day in a life because he doesnt DO his job.

Physics 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I did not buy the texbook, I didn't think it was worth the money. His recitation is alright. He gets very worked up over the material, although there are not a lot of demonstrations. He is a nice guy who gets you up at a 8am class. Although, if you want a teacher that is more direct and less abstract, then take another recitation.

GenPhy1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy but incapable of teaching. Do not take his recitation if you can. Doesn't announce quizzes then teaches you what was on the quiz after you bomb it.

Phys1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is super friendly / approachable and will answer any question any time unless he is very busy at the moment. Sometimes his recitations were hard to follow, but any calc-based physics recitation is hard to follow unless you prepare and try the problems beforehand. It's a hard subject, and he is as good a help as a professor can be if you ask.

Explo101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Terrible. He's rude and doesnt know anything about the course. My friend and I(and pretty much everyone around us) cheated the whole year without him even having a clue. We knew all of the answers to the quizzes before hand. He is a terrible prof. Take stimets.

Physi205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher, probably the best Physics 2 Recitation teacher out there. Very helpful at explaining things and holds 3 hour option review sessions before tests that are very helpful. Nice guy and funny.
