PHY105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is very dedicated and enthusiastic about the subject. He jokes around and tells stories and keeps the class interesting. Ask questions if you don't understand. The material may be abstract but it really isn't that difficult to understand, just do the homework and pay attention.

PHY238 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

GREAT professor! He not only makes the material fun and interesting, but he loves what he does, and is always so excited about what he's teaching. The class can be very confusing at times, but if you ask questions and work with a group on the homework, you can get ALOT out of it. Going to this class is usually not a chore!

PHY105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Good class! I honestly wish Prof. Wittmann taught some of my other classes! He actually makes me want to learn this stuff by telling some great stories of his and has some really insightful concepts about learning and life. When stuff doesn't make sense ASK QUESTIONS! He'll answer them and then you and the rest of the class won't be struggling!

PHY228 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very dedicated teacher who thoroughly enjoys his craft. If you are lost, just ask and he will make sure you understand. This man is very open to constructive criticism of his course and is willing to listen to you, take advantage of that.

PHY105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's really nice, and I do think he cares about how his students learn. The class is the worst thing I've ever taken - it's extremely abstract and difficult and after the first 3 weeks almost unbearable. I attended all classes and labs and am still struggling. Be prepared to dedicate a lot of time to this class, and feel lost 99% of the time!

Nice Teacher. Horrible class. The class was easy as hell in the first couple of weeks. But then, it started getting harder. And now (although I attend ALL the class and went to all the Labs and took notes and did my homeworks) the class is so hard. More than half the students in the class have no idea what they are learning! seriously stupid class!

This guy claim he knows how to teach phsics. his pace is random he is not clear and he does not have the answer for the easiest stuff. tutorials are limiting. and i do not care about germany or switzerland.

PHY 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

He is very clear and relates well to his students. very personal, very very dorky- but in a fun way. there is no text for this class, so its very liberal 'we write our own texts' the labs do seem to be very pointless though.

The man is as arrogant as they come. He claims to have a specialty in physics education, yet somehow manages to not connect with any of us. He never gets anything graded, and delightfully tells us so right before collecting our homework, which he never accepts late. Ambiguous expectations galore.
