Unfortunately, Yuichi just doesn't seem suited to teach an intro course. He mentioned it's been 10 years since he has. Many lectures were theoretical and didn't touch on any examples - and when examples were done, they would sometimes take up to 2 lectures to finish. Had some very strict rules, especially for a lecture course. Avoid if you can.

Yuichi's accent is pretty easy to get used to. He also adopts a casual tone in class. He seems easygoing, but he doesn't actually care how the students fare despite the amount of work they do. Adheres unreasonably rigidly to silly, arbitrary rules despite obviously just exceptions. Labs are useless but mandatory. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS.

Physics at the U of M is hard regardless of who you take it with. That being said Yuichi is a very helpful teacher and very approachable. One thing that tends to get bothersome is that he goes into too much technical detail when explaining things, but other than that he is a nice guy/

Yuichi is a charismatic guy but this is an act. I was expecting him to care a lot about the success of his students but he will only care about you if you consistently talk to him and are a teachers pet. He also has a NO tardiness policy which is worse than it ever was in high school. If you don't want any slack in a class this is perfect for you.
