Nice guy but won't give a straight answer. Very frustrating. Doesn't work the problems out on paper. Tries to explain things 99% of the time by saying equations & waving his hands around. Expects you to know physics already. His reviews are worth going to just so you know what's on the exam. Don't bother with the regular lecture. GO TO TUTORIALS!

Prosper's classes are difficult, but by no means impossible, and especially not unfair. Make sure to read the book and practice examples thoroughly, and you'll be ok. He gives extra credit and even let us redo our midterm 3x due to low averages. Once you figure out his style, you can seriously get 100s on tests.

Lectures are pointless, but fun, and have plenty of demonstrations. Recitations are great (take them with Stevens), and study groups really really help.

This class has put way too much stress on me. If you take it, GO TO TUTORIALS. You might miss PRS points from lectures but if you skip anything, skip those. The tutorials are the only place you semi-learn anything. The difficult part is that they give you one example per concept and expect you to be able to apply it to anything so practice much!

This man was useless! He gives 4 multiple choice questions on scantron for a test. I got a zero out of 4 on my first test and went to class everyday. I studied harder than ever to get a mediocre grade. Avoid him at all costs!

i loved physics before taking his class. his lectures are pointless and he assumes you know way too much. if i hadnt taken ap physics in highschool i would be totally lost. only 2 major grades make and a few mini quizzes make up your grade and the quizzes are only 4 questions.

Professor Prosper pushed me to my limits in PHY48 and 49 it was amazing. great prof/scientist and office hrs that extend until u u have no more questions. understand the concepts on ur hmwk problems and u will be fine started loving physics and took modern physics with him for the fun of it.

Lectures are very boring and dry; however, the class really is not that difficult.. He gives plenty of options for extra credit both in class and exam curves. Not a recommended professor for learning the most but still fairly easy.

You think he's a great teacher until you take your first exam. Then you realize going to class every day was a total waste of time and that you should have just gone to tutorials and done your homework. He does NO EXAMPLES related to the test questions in class and actually focuses on the theory of physics and exams cover its application.

Dr.Prosper seems like a nice guy and all but when it comes to teaching he is major fail. He assumes that the students know calculus and trig even though calc is suppose to be a co-req with physics. He doesnt put examples in any of his lectures and will tend to blabble about stuff we dont need to know. His tests are hard. BEWARE!!!

Dr. Prosper is an awesome guy! If you like physics you will like him. He's really funny when he can be, and is really happy & passionate about what he teaches. Tests are extremely hard, so be prepared to study all week! The english accent is pretty cool too!

He is only interested in his research. His lectures are a history lesson nd you basically have to teach yourself. He gives mjor extr credit but if you need PHY2049 you need to take another teacher. Tests are horrible, each question requires a narrative, diagram, and the actual calculations. Avoid if possible

amazingly smart professor, but he has a hard time expressing basic physics. although he gave several ways to improve grades, it was an uphill struggle all the way

Even though Prosper tends to go on about some things for too long, I loved his lectures. He is funny and passionate about his field, a very animated teacher. There are many opportunities to do well, you just need to stay caught up because this class can seem easier than it is.

Such a nice man!! I would definitely take another class with him. He takes time to make sure that every single person in the class understands the material. He's very passionate about science and knows a ton about it. Take a class with him if you can!

The easiest class at FSU&the best teacher for it!Dr.Prosper is brilliant,but definitely able to communicate w/students.He gives test reviews the class before the test&the review is basically identical to the test!You have to go to class tho.This class is a breeze&fulfills an FSU requirement for science!It's better than taking chem or bio!Easy A!

Professor Prosper was one of the best teachers I've had at FSU. Interesting and clear in his lectures. Likes Pink Floyd and has a British accent. It's fun to see a black man with a British accent. Anyway, the class is easy - just show up!

this class was probably my most favorite class so far at FSU. He was energetic, had very long office hours, and only required that you listened in class. Attendance isn't req., but if you dont go, your going to think the class is hard, which is a no brainer.
