PHYSICS 2750 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dorina's enthusiasm is lovely. She really does want the best for her students. Sometimes, though, her execution is off. Lectures are only marginally helpful - not enough deliberate examples. My strategy: skip the lecture,and watch it on Tegrity. 1.5x speed on proofs and slow down to really grasp the examples. Tests are reasonable if you know these

GREAT teacher and interested in student learning. She tries her best to incorporate real world demos and examples to what could be a very boring and tedious class! You will need to be prepared to do some work, but make sure to look at practice exams as they are a good guide for actual exams.

Awesome teacher, the one and only good one that I have ever had in the physics Department. Should teach every course because the other professors I have had in the physics department were horrible and even yelled at students with questions to the point of making them cry. Be very thankful if you get her for a teacher.

Dorina is genuinely interested in student learning. Although her class is not easy, if you attend RSD, get good lab scores, and work through practice tests, you will succeed. She uses demonstrations and clips from the Big Bang Theory in class, which keeps things interesting. Extra credit is given at the end of the semester. Great class!

Great professor. Actually knows how to teach physics. You should hope you have Dorina if you have to take physics 2750 or 2760

Dorina seems tough on the outside, but her heart is pure gold. She has a very peculiar sense of humor typical of eastern European people, which is somewhat dark. The class is easy to follow and the lectures flow smoothly. Arguing a bad grade is usually futile, but she makes up for it with well-timed extra credit. She does care for her students.

awesome professor. She is very approachable, really nice and very easy to understand. Tests are not overly hard or on anything you haven't seen before. She has made physics tolerable and almost even enjoyable.

Dorina is a very enthusiatic and motivated teacher. She'll go out of her way to help students if they need it. Though a lot of the material in Physics can be rather tough, she makes it possible for anyone in the class to do well if they really try.

Wonderful professor. Makes a class of over 100 feel much, much smaller. Encourages partcipation, readily available to answer questions, excellent at recitations and explaining the mathematics behind it all. No complaints here whatsoever.
