You are in luck if you are reading this review, it means you have or will have the Poly Kracken. He's the absolute best professor ever. He's not easy but every homework he writes is a masterpiece. You will actually learn physics. Good luck!

You'd be lucky if you get this professor for any physics class, he really knows how to teach. I have been through every professor in this department and i can say he is up there. Study hard somehow he will see your efforts. He won't try to kill you with the exams, but he will challenge you. Don't take for granted the lectures, that's the key.

Very motivated and clear professor. Exams are very challenging, but he grades fairly. Helps you really understand physics. It's too bad he's not teaching any of my other Physics courses.

PHYS207 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He taught the honors section introductory physics course (note that I am not an honors student). Extremely passionate about the subject, and very clear when presenting the material. Expect to be challenged, but you will really learn physics in his class. 1-2 semesters of calculus wouldn't hurt either.

analytic mechanics- its such a jam packed course, basically all of mechanics with hamiltonian and lagrangian formalism. He so passionate about the subject and like to point out connections between classical and quantum mechanics. take him if you want a very entusiastic and motivated prof.
