His lectures were sometimes confusing because he gets lost quite often while teaching the material. However, he is always willing to help. He offers a lot of office hours and he also runs help sessions before each of the exams, which I found to be very helpful. Overall, he is a decent professor, just make sure you keep up with the material.

Although he can sometimes be a bit confusing do to the long derivations that he tries to do, Professor Lee does a good job at conveying the material. He has review sessions before every test which will help to reinforce the key concepts. Although he is older than most other professors, he is still very good.

His derivations in class can sometimes get confusing because he makes errors somewhat often. His handwriting was bad, but improved. He has office hours every day, and I felt that the office hours helped the most. Reading the textbook and doing the examples almost guarantees a good grade. Clicked questions may/may not be asked.

Very sweet guy. Professor Lee is so passionate about physics, that it makes you want to pay attention, even if physics isn't your strong suit. He makes it very clear that if you go to office hours he will do everything he can to help you, which is 100% true. He's one of those professors that you don't forget.

Lecture is useless. This guy gets so confused all the time. Being a freshman, this guy makes my high school teachers look like educational prodigies.

He is a nice man with good intentions but bad practice. He doesn't explain his procedures and often gets confused in his own work. When you ask about concepts you often get a "read the text!" unless you're in office hours, which are helpful and held often.

Very nice man! Always welcoming during office hours but his lectures are hard to follow and incomprehensible. My grade was saved (B-) by the generous curve he applies to the class. If you must take 125 with Linwood, READ YOUR TEXTBOOK and GO TO OFFICE HOURS. However, take advantage of his kindness... I hear McGrew is a nightmare for 126.

He is a REALLY sweet man. However, He would frequently forget what he was doing mid-problem and confuse the students. I could not connect with the material, and I got a D in the course :( He really is great personality wise, but I would recommend if physics isn't your strong point, take this course with a different professor.

He is the sweetest professor ever. You can genuinely see that he enjoys teaching. He no longer does research anymore, and he teaches because he loves it. I heard that he used to be one of the best teachers, until something happened with his health making him forget things and stuff like that. I love this teacher. He truly cares for his students.

I disagree with the comments before, he's a very helpful teacher, has office hours many times a week, and students dont go to him, fun teacher, he loves teaching, sometimes goes off topic but u still learn what u need to learn, easy teacher, talks with students if they need any help

Look, he's not a bad guy or anything, but he doesn't make any sense in lecture. He makes tons of mistakes and forgets where he's going with problems. Unfortunately, you are graded on attendance, which is ridiculous. On review sheets for tests, his handwriting is incomprehensible. He's the only guy teaching this class though, so be advised.

this class is already difficult and taking lee doesnt make it any easier. the lectures are long and beyond boring, i usually just fall asleep if i go. the labs for this class are soo difficult and having him as a recitation teacher is terrible. he doesnt explain things well at all and assumes that if you read the book you know everything

The lectures were essentially useless, but attendance is mandatory. The guy has the best interests of the student at heart but he's just not that good of an instructor.

He is a nice guy but just a really bad professor. The really time for the class didn't help much, but there's just so many topics and with his lack of detail and bad handwriting its hard to succeed.

He had a stroke a year or two ago, & it definitely impairs his ability to teach. He teaches sporadically, has very poor handwriting, & often confuses himself. I can do 2 questions for homework or the whole thing, & I still get the same grade (w. the answer key). I've tried arguing grades twice after advice from a TA. He denied twice w.o reason.

rather than taking 131 and 132, splitting them into three, which Linwood teaches two of them (125, 127) is not a bad choice. probably a lot better.

Old school professor. He is very nice and helpful. Clear in lecture and makes things easy for students to understand and tries to have a little humor in class. Has a lot of office hours. Homeworks can be a bit tough at times if you skip lecture at least 1.5 hours of work one hw a week. Requires clickers for the class. Labs are important. Good Prof!

Very nice guy whos happy to answer questions in class or during office hours. In class he speaks loud and clear. He posts practice tests before exams. My only complaint is his writing on the board can be unorganized and hard to read at times.
