Let me start off by saying one thing. Mr. Gibbons believes that a man without morals is like a fish without a bicycle. You know what he does for fun? NOTHING. His last name is "Gibbons", which is a type of monkey. The class would be so boring if it wasn't for a special student in his class who I'm not going to mention by name(Pranav). It's ok though. From now on, I'm going to turn over a new leaf and treat him like the respectful teacher that he is.

Call him gibbby he likes it. Very experienced and knows what he's talking about. Dedicated to teaching and helping students despite working in industry before. Most of all, makes a traditionally boring subject very fun and interesting.

Mr. Gibbons is an entertainer. He takes a boring subject and makes it exciting with his demos and flamboyant personality. His stories are amusing, yet they still have valuable life lessons. His tests and HW/labs are identical, so it's a pretty easy A

gibby is actually a really good teacher. If you put your effort in, you are almost guaranteed an A in his class (considering you work hard and do your homework). He always helps students if they need it too... plus he tells you what is on the test many times as well. His class is a lot of fun and you learn a lot through demos and explanations, which I thought was awesome.
Switch out of newbs if you get him he isnt that great lmao. had him for a bit and didnt like his teaching style

ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS MAN. Knows a lot about the subject but doesn't understand that THIS IS REGULAR PHYSICS HE IS TEACHING. GIVES TESTS THAT ARE WAY TOO HARD and COMPLETELY UNFAIR, and is EXTREMELY UNFAIR ON GRADING ALL LABS AND HOMEWORK. EVEN ADMITTED THAT STUDENTS CRY AFTER TAKING HIS TESTS. THAT'S HOW RIDICULOUSLY UNFAIR THEY ARE!!!! SWITCH TO NEWB IMMEDIATELY IF U GET THIS MAN. HE NEEDS TO BE RESTRICTED FROM EVER TEACHING A REGULAR LEVEL CLASS. NEEDS TO BE AT COLLEGE FOR HIS KIND OF TEACHING
