He may not be the best teacher in the world, but he sure as hell is way better than stover. He's clear about his lessons, and if you ask him for help, he will teach you.
He's the reason why I ended up hating physics. Make sure you read stuff other than what's on the homework because he often puts stuff on tests he didn't bother to teach.
It feels like he improvises the course doesn't really care to teach much
"Barry" is the man....very helpful and always answers questions....always gives hw though which is very annoying and textbook reading often....beginning of the year will give you pop quizzes on reading and midway through year starts with the pop quizzes again...class is like a lecture..very boring ...last thing to remember "problem solving strategy" you will never forget it
pretty sweet teacher to have for physics. His class can be easier or harder depending on how good you are at physics (of course), but he really helps you understand the subject.
Teaches Physics in a way you can understand. Overall great teacher.
I had him for Astronomy class last year, dumbest class ever. He didnt teach a thing and made us watch the whole Universe series on Discovery Channel and takes notes.
The homework and tests can be hard be physics is a hard subject. Lightfoot teaches everything in a way that i can understand and he'll help you during homeroom if you need it. Overall great teacher.
loved him for physics.. great guy. pretty good teacher.. his class is very easy for the first mp but gets harder... the 4th mp is spent watching movies of someone else teaching
Very laid back, can help you alot if you do not actually fall asleep. He makes the class seem very easy, but if you do not pay attention, like the fool 11/29/07...you probably will not do well in his class. Another tip is to not miss any homework assignments because they are the difference between an A and a D.
bill nye is cool. he teachees everything like its the first time...even when he has tught it 5x before. hes a nice enough guy but the homework will come back to get you...make sure you get it all right before you turn it in. And keep EVERYTHING. try to use as much paper as possible because he counts the # of pages for your notebook grade
Barry would be an okay guy i guess but his homework is impossible to do and so are his tests. He is not willing to bend in any way, and makes zero effort while still expecting good performance out of his students. I'm convinced he is unaware that most of our class exists.
Lightfoot is a good teacher, but nobody can compare with Stover. I don't like how his tone implies that he's telling us something new when talking about sine.
nice and fun guy. A lot of notes, huge folders, gives out A LOT OF DIFFICULT homework before explaining it. class is fun with short films and group work
Just make sure that u TALK to him before and after class when u don't understand something ASAP!!
