PHY2048L Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters"

BAD, BAD, BAD. Lectures are insanely long and repetitive and unclear, do not repeat the same sentence every other sentence PLEASE. He says he is your lab partner, but requires a boat load worth of work. Avoid the teacher, and if you have to take him just be prepared to be overloaded. Does not use a book, so no reference to clarify his ramblings.

PHY2048L Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Rating for PHY2048 is also mine and I would not say POOR should have shown up. Makes a few mistakes, but does give extra credit if you catch them and tell him. Difficult to understand, but grades gently. Doesn't crucify you if you make a couple mistakes. Good teacher, obviously cares and knows his stuff he is just hard to understand

PHY2048 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good professor, but he is almost impossible to understand sometimes (thick accent). He also makes quite a few mistakes, gives you obscure questions, and randomly changes due dates sometimes with no messages. Overall, good class and a good teacher, but he can be infuriating! Bounces around a lot in lectures, and to be honest I wish we used a book.

PHY2048 and Lab Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

I find this class perfectly challenging. The professor is detailed in his explanations and is available nearly whenever you have a question. I've submitted things consistently around midnight and it's already graded, corrected, and there are helpful tips waiting for me by 8 the next morning. Really a great professor who is passionate for physics!

isc 1002c Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tests are heavily weighted. Just do the home work like a real student and you'll pass. It's not rocket science... just nuclear science.

Gives you everything you need for the class. Has lectures on itunes for a better understanding, gives you easy to understand powerpoints, homework and the answers to it, helps you through labs and tests are fairly easy if you study the pp and do the labs. Awesome class, very interesting and great teacher

ISC1002 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online. It was easy. The lectures are so boring and I stopped watching them (except the ones with labs) by the 3rd module. I still did well on the tests. The final seemed a bit hard compared to how the other tests were. I ended up with a B in the class, and science is my worst subject. He's a fast grader and a nice guy.

ISC1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online. He is excellent at actually teaching the material. Fair grading. No textbook! Only drawback is that the lectures are very long. If you pay attention, you will do fine on the heavily weighted tests (75%), but it is hard to fully pay attention for such a long time.

ISC1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took online as an accelerated class. The only good thing about this class is that there is no textbook required. Professor is somewhat unclear and English is clearly his second language. The labs and assignments were easy, but tests were more difficult and account for 75% of grade. Would not recommend and I'm a straight A student.

ISC1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Took this online. No Textbook! It takes some work as the assignments are somewhat extensive but there aren't too many of them. I got an A without much difficulty. I plan on taking this professor again. Some of the assignments aren't too clear but he does answer questions and grade quickly. Would reccomend

Online class which was a pleasant surprise. Be prepared to watch his utunes videos, which are from 45-65 minutes a piece. These are helpful in studing/learning. Would take again, recommend him!

PHY2049 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took Physics 1 & 2 both online this summer. It is very fast and has a ton of work. I find him very helpful, if you have questions, he will email you right away. He is very clear in his lectures even though he has an accent, which is not bad. After dropping out from the other phy prof's who were terrible, I regret that I didn't take his class b4.

ISC1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Is not fluent in English. Communication errors cost me an A grade. Partly my fault and partly a structural floor in the presentation of the online course. Students are expected to spend 6 plus hours downloading all aspects of the class, then piece everything together like a jigsaw. I am not used to having to do the lesson planning for a professor.

This professor is awesome! I would recommend him to everyone!!! He gets you excited about science, and about learning even if you don't like science. He breaks things down for you, explains them, but expects you to do the work. There is no textbook because he gives you what you need, and applies it to real life. Take his classes any chance.
