PH2100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Maybe it's just me, or maybe it's just Fisher 135, but I could not pay attention to his lecture. Very monotone and did not know how to use the lecture hall equipment. Not his fault though. Follow the lectures, do the work and get help if you need it. Also, do the extra credits! There is a lot of extra credit that is VERY helpful and VERY easy.

A pretty good teacher. Very easy to understand and you can get an easy A if you pay attention in class and study the PowerPoints. No complaints, although sometimes it seemed like he didn't really know what he was teaching. Good other than that!

PH2100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Definitely shouldn't be anyone's first choice for the class. He basically reads powerpoint slides that were made by another professor without feeling the need to really go into detail on the information presented. Avoid him if you can.

If you have any other options take advantage of them! He do not explain anything; he just reads off slides showing you how to do problems. Not the greatest

Flat out the worst professor I've ever had. Tries to do examples using powerpoint, and powerpoint is all he uses. He is simply not good at teaching.

Not a bad professor, though it is hard to pay attention in his class at some times. Was a little boring at times, some more interesting real world examples in the lectures would have been helpful maybe.

Yeah, okay, he does alot of experients...but he doesn't know how to TEACH the subject. He's used to his 4000 lvl students, he doesn't know how to teach the 2100 course. I studied for over 10 hours and still did horrible on the test .I have never failed a class, and I might this semester. Very Bad Teacher and very boring lectures.

PH1200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hard for him to keep audience attention, doesn't get the topics across well to the class very soft-spoken, boring, too many mistakes on multiple lectures, especially during problem solving sessions.

Knows the topics, but has a hard time getting the ideas across during class. Uses experiments and examples to prove the point, but sometimes the substance just isn't there. Also, very easy to get off topic. He does high level particle physics, so this class is a snore for him.
