HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Today I learned from my professor that Ken passed away. I am sure he was a nice guy and his contribution to the field of computer graphics (Specular BRDF Model) is covered in many textbooks.

My advice: Go to lectures. Let him know your name. He will definitely help you and youll get a good grade if you show the potential to learn. If you are brave ask a question in class, but make sure it is a really good question. Overall, material was interesting and Torrence did his best to teach it.

What's wrong with Torrance? HW is hard but that's just the nature of a subject with lot's o table look-ups. He does explain stuff reasonably clearly and provides enough help that you can get good grades if you really want to...

Engrd 221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Good guy, but hard to follow lectures. Ridiculous problem sets that take forever. Poorly graded tests that dont really test your knowledge with high point T/F questions. Tries hard, but can go too fast.
